How To Cook Human Flesh

I’ve noticed a weird trend on my blog during these last few months. More and more searches for ‘How to Cook Human Flesh’ are being sent here by Google. Allow me to give you a background to this. As most of my regular readers know, this blog started as a site for me to talk about, and post excerpts of my book, Sunday’s Child. It has evolved since then and I’ve started two other blogs and written several other books along the way.

One of my uploaded excerpts (named after a chapter in the book) is called, ‘How to Cook Human Flesh.’ It’s about my experience of being burned on my hand by my grandmother. You can read it here if you wish.

After a few months of posting this excerpt, I learned that Google was sending specific searches my way. Some of them are, ‘How to cook a human,’ How to cook a person,’ and How to cook human flesh.’ What I want to know is who’s conducting these searches and why. Are there people somewhere in the world with plans to cook another human? Have they got dead bodies stored in their refrigerator and are looking for ways in which to cook them to a tasty finish?

Now I know that this is hardly news. After all, it’s got nothing to do Oprah quitting The Oprah Winfrey Show (the news which is spreading like a wild fire on the Internet). But as far as I’m concerned, this is a very fascinating subject because I can see the frequency at which people from all over the world search for directions on how to cook a human.

Am I the only one that thinks this is a bit spooky? Have I got to watch my back or be eaten? :-)

I would like to think that it is just some morbid teens, or a horror writer, because most people would be wooried about leaving a trace on their computer, but who knows. Those sorts of things honestly keep me awake at night, and perhaps I've just watched too many true crime stories, but when my husband is away, I've been known to sleep with his 300 short mag, and the clip in my underwear drawer.

BTW, during WWI the Germans handed out pamphlets on cannibalism, suggesting that the brains were the safest and most easy to digest part of the body. I do not care to know how they conducted their research.

Ok, thinking happy thoughts. Happy thoughts. Happy thoughts. Oh, and I'll lend you a rifle if any of those googlers get creepy.

When I saw the excerpt on my dash I remembered the post you made from long ago and you are right, this is truly spooky. I used to eat lunch at a local restaurant and found out years later that the owner snapped and placed his wife on the menu. The place was called Kip's Taco. It seems he had told someone that if he ever killed his wife he wouldn't do time because there would be no body, so when she came up missing, they talked.
Spooks me out.

Hi Anne - yes, I'm still wasting time on Authonomy. Sad, aren't I!

I suppose you get something out of it. Otherwise, you wouldn't still be there.

That's odd that people would search something like that..
