The Yellow Card Question, Episode 2

And now, what you've all been waiting for -- this week's episode of:

The Yellow Card Question!

Pretend now that I actually didn't leave my deck of yellow card questions in Jinhua and planned ahead by queuing up a few here, but rather am pulling the question now live, before your very eyes! Feel the suspense! Gaze in anticipation at the beautiful bright yellow rectangles! Read a few extra exclamation marks!!!

And a few more: !!!!

And now, the question:
"You have been captured by cannibals. How would you like to be cooked?"

Well, if I'm going to be eaten, I would like to be eaten good, slow cooked in a deep pit barbecue or roasted over an open fire with lots of tasty spices. I've heard cannibals often know how to make a mean barbecue sauce and are pretty good at cooking with open fires. So really, I trust them to cook me right. Just so long as they don't leave any as microwaved leftovers I'll be fine.

Hmmm. Maybe this yellow card question should be filled for future reference under the Sufficient Grace heading currently playing at

The scene the horror film where the cannibals dismembered the missionary left me with my hair standing on end.but i don't think there are still cannibals, even in those thick forest in africa. and perhaps when i reaaly encountered them,i would use an old method——to get them away by saying "Shoo-----"

I can't figure out which movie you're talking about, and googling doesn't narrow things down. Apparently there are lots of movies where missionaries get eaten by cannibals.

Unfortunately, the tried and true method of saying "shoo" doesn't work with these particular cannibals, because in their language, "shoo" means "with teriyaki sauce".

Really the thought of eating human flesh is pretty disgusting no matter how you look at it. But I agree with serapio. Microwaved is even worse.

oh really? i didn't know that or else i won't say shoo to them. but if they insist,i have an idea to take revenge on them:you take enough poison to death before they coming near to you and they will kill themselves because they get poisoned by eating you, and the more important is,you don't know what happened to you since you are dead.

But Joy, that wouldn't be nice!

let me live decently or give me death.
there is an old chinese saying——鱼与熊掌不可得兼。which means life is always full of choices and most of which very hard.
perhaps here now i am exaggerating our topic but you know this is me,a great pessimist----
