To Serve Man

Perhaps Little Pammy Geller is feeling a bit fatigued today, as she apparently had to turn to someone else to provide her wingnut lunacy of the day. That would be Lt. Col. Alan B. West (U. S. Army, Ret.) who provides us with the following instructive parable:

“A race of aliens known as the Kanamits land on earth and promise to be nothing but helpful to the cause of humanity. Initially wary of the intentions of such a highly advanced race even the most skeptical humans are convinced when their code-breakers begin to translate one of the Kanamit’s books with the seemingly innocuous title, “To Serve Man”.

All is not well, however, when a code-breaker discovers the Kanamits’ true intentions: Their book, “To Serve Man”, is a cookbook, and all their gifts were simply to make humanity complacent, much like fattening pigs or cows before they are slaughtered.”

Here we are today and the Kanamits are the far left liberals."

And we're hungry. I think I am going to start on a little Sarah Palin with sauce Perigord. I'm not cooking you up, Pammy. You're too bitter.

I think this was the premise of an episode of 'The Simpsons'.

Lt. Col. Alan B. West might be getting his world view from a cartoon?

Actually, it was originally an episode of the Twilight Zone, parodied by the Simpsons.

In fairness, the original article did mention the source of the story, but it did not seem that relevant to my post, and I try a little to keep them from getting too long, so I didn't mention it.
