    It is some kind of combination of stupid and cruel.
    And it yet provides another example of the definition of human society: stupid and cruel.

    I suppose this would be a poor time to bring up the fact that I have wondered why those that are starving in Africa don't eat each other, if they're that hungry.

    I would think if the alternative was death...you would.

    Thread provides a good example of a psychological defense colloquially called "gallows humor."

    When something is so terrible that mere contemplation of it is difficult to accept sometimes people resort to making grim jokes. This is a common practice among rescue workers, ambulance crews, police, emergency room personnel, etc. A coping mechanism to enable them to continue to work all day in the midst of human horror.

    Edit: If I'm not mistaken Oscar Wilde employed gallows humor as he lay dying when he made the remark about the awful wallpaper in the room saying, "One of us is going to have to go!"
    "No ray of sunshine is ever lost, but the green which it awakes into existence needs time to sprout, and it is not always granted to the sower to see the harvest. All work that is worth anything is done in faith." - Albert Schweitzer

    Have you read A Modest Proposal?

    I'm surprised they dismembered and ate her. I would think most predators would keep her as a sex slave/prostitute since she was a cute kid. Or maybe she was sold into slavery and this story was created to get people to stop looking for her.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Fair enough, but what about the dismembered parts being scattered about? They belong to somebody, after all.
    Um, yeah.

    Could've been dismembered animal body parts.

    ... kind of reminds me of that sick film, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - and it was pretty hard to determine whether the dismembered parts were that of the human corpses or that of the livestock.

    That's a high possibility.
