If you ask parents permission to kill and eat their children, large majorities will grant it.
If you phrase the question properly.
They’ll think it’s a joke, but don’t concern yourself with that, the main thing is consent’s given.
Further: When you pose the question with more than one child present, they’ll attempt to convince you to take their sibling, rather than questioning if you have the right to kill/eat children at all.
I’m not sure what this means, but it‘s certainly been my experience. It’s an interesting quirk of the human condition.
Next week: Preparation and cooking of children.
