Noted writer Joyce Carol Oates took to Twitter over the weekend to announce that if it weren’t for that pesky social taboo, poor people would be eating their kids.
Poor persons & their young children very lucky that taboo against cannibalism still holds. Possibly, the last & most elemental taboo.

The smarter folks on Twitter were all too happy to explain why that statement is ludicrous. Twitchy has the whole story.
