Where I work, we have a regular event where they set up lunchtime booths for people to bring in dishes from different cultures in order to celebrate diversity. I got an email recently asking if I wanted to furnish such a booth. I'm thinking of doing one called, "Taste of the Aztecs." It would feature nothing but organ meat.
|Did I mention it would be very fresh?|
- "The Spaniards’ use of animals and technology made them no less barbaric than the Aztecs, just dramatically different."
- "The eating of human flesh by the Aztecs was an act of great religious solemnity and compassion."
- "Large animals were not indigenous to Ancient Mexico. Tapirs and deer were among the largest types. For this reason, animal drawn carts were not invented and the wheel was not used technologically (though children’s toys were made with wheels). Though the Aztecs did lack European knowledge of metallurgy, they were keen merchants and patrons of the arts. Their capital city was probably the biggest, cleanest and most beautiful in the world."
I'm open for other suggestions for responses to this sophomoric idiocy.
