I think it's all right to eat other people, as long as they've been properly canned. So in the future, when we think we're eating soy, but it turns out we're actually eating people, well–I'll be okay with that, Charlton Heston, I'll be able to live with that. As long as the people are packaged under sanitary conditions.

I'm a vegetarian now, but I'm willing to make an exception in the event I'm presented with people. Because I've always been fairly standoffish; I have this tendency not to get to know people very well. And I don't think there is any better way to get to know humanity than to ingest it.

(sung)
Eating people, holding hands
Eating hands, holding people
Eating feet, and eating legs

Eating people, holding hands
Eating hands, holding people
Eating feet, eating legs
Eating heads, eating necks

(spoken)
Now, I'm not saying I wanna eat people. I've heard they taste like pork, and I've never been a big fan of pork. I'm saying, if someone is gonna go through all the trouble of preparing it for me, and tricking me into eating it by telling me it's an incredible soy substitute with a lot more nutrients, let's say, and so I ate it, and it turned out to be quite delicious, and then I found out that it was somebody, maybe even somebody I knew–then I'm not gonna be all that upset. I mean, yeah, maybe I'll be upset that the person is dead. I mean, if it was somebody I liked.

But I think it would make sense–if I ate something and liked it, and then found out that the something I ate and liked was a part of a person who I'd liked as a person, before I had eaten them–I think I'd be all right with that. I think that would be fine. I think that might even be a good thing.

(sung)
Eating people, holding hands
Eating hands, holding people
Eating feet, and eating legs

Eating people, holding hands
Eating hands, holding people
Eating feet, eating legs (Eating people, holding hands)
Eating heads, eating necks

Eating people, holding hands
Eating hands, holding people
Eating feet, and eating legs

Eating people, holding hands
Eating hands, holding people
Eating feet, eating legs
Eating heads, eating necks (Ba... ba... ba... ba... ba)
Ba... ba... ba... ba... ba
