During a recent conversation about the deliciousness of babies and mankind, we compared the babies to eating eggs and didn't know which was worse: eating what was [a baby] or what could have been [an egg would have been a chick].
"I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee or a ragout."
--Jonathan Swift, A Modest Proposal
"Well, I only like one kind of egg so I guess I'd probably rather eat babies."
