Why Cannibals Eat Readers

Saw a DVD preview of this...

you can rent it

Yes, that's right. They've released Cannibal! The Musical which is a student film directed back in 1996 by (co-creator of South Park) Trey Parker, while studying at U of CO Boulder.

His black comedy is loosely based on the true story of ex-con (yes, its spelled that way) Alferd Packer who was hired to lead 5 miners across the mountains in winter, yet reappeared weeks later well-fed and loaded with cash (& wallets) saying he'd lost track of them {burp} in the snow...


{30 sec} *Trey Parker also plays Alferd Packer


I have no shame;
I added it to my NetFlix queue.



So,
Why do cannibals prefer eating readers to writers?

A.
Because writers cramp but readers digest.

    Maybe ... 'The Tonya Harding Story: The Musical! On Ice!'

    Personally, I blame Canada.
