I guess someone was away on the day they were handing out subtlety.

Well, PETA apparently sponsored this story. They’re not exactly big friends of subtlety. Or logic. Or animals, really.

Ah. That explains a lot.

well, there is always lawyers.
apparently at one point medical schools were thinking about using lawyers as test subjects rather than rats, because researchers didn't get emotionally attached to them, like they do to the rats.
:P

So basically its "A Modest Proposal" for the modern age.

Babies can be a delicacy, but they’re simply an inefficient food source

Per Neil's intro to the story in (whichever collection I first read it in, found the quote but not the attribution)

"For the record, I wear a leather jacket and eat meat, but I am quite good with babies." I get the impression that this one was really just for the money. I think the money went to PETA, rather than Neil, so parse that as you will.

Johnathan Swift already did back this in 1729.

Yes, yes, "Nothing new under the sun." (For example, Crinos already made that observation only three comments up).
