“The Cannibal Variations – XII” / Memorable Fancies #450

 [The future: there’s not much left to eat but people.]

      “…to forestall the likelihood of empathetic feelings arising in the herd, those hubes who were born in free-range ranches were not given names. Nonetheless, it was observed that they often christened (if we may use the term here) each other with sobriquets that struck observers as ludicrous and over-elaborate, considering their destination as steaks, chops, and stew-meat. “Sparticus” and “Scipio” were among the favorites.”

[– Roland Kendrick, New Directions in the Genus Homo Protein Industry (2038)]

[“hube” = human being; generally considered derogatory]
