A Modest Proposal - Jonathan Swift

This quote was added by zerogravt-cole
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.

I know he means this satirically, but I really do not like the subject matter
