Post Long Pork

Who thought this was a penis joke and who knew what I was talking about from the thread title?

I'm seriously baffled. I made a joke about someone eating long pork in a CSS game and got banned for being blatantly disrespectful to the admin. Illiterate twat.
Why does my life have to be so small
And death is forever
And does forever have a life to call its own?
Don't give me an answer cause you only know
As much as I know
Unless you've been there once
And I hardly think so

Cannibalism. I seem to remember Robert Heinlein using the phrase once or twice, probably in Farnham's Freehold and/or Stranger in a Strange Land.

Post Re: Long Pork

Long pork is human meat. Atleast, it is a dish made of human meat. It's not a penis joke, it's cannibalism.
Unsupport unthink.

Post Re: Long Pork

There are a number of other sources as well, I think Melville somewhere but I can't find it, might have just touched on cannibalism. There's a recent movie, Long Pigs, a sketch in Robot Chicken, a comment in one of the Hannibal books(I think Red Dragon? He gave a recipe for pork). Cannibal: the Musical draws out the joke in the background but never actually presents it in dialogue. Sweeney Todd mentions that Mrs. Lovett is selling "veal and pork pies."

Point being, it's a fairly common euphemism for human flesh. It even has non-literary origin in Polynesia.

Err... he didn't... He didn't get banned from LoR, but some gaming place or something.
