Can humans “taste like chicken?
« on: 20/01/2011 12:41:51 »



Let’s say we get an egg from a woman’s ovary, let’s say –for the sake of argument— we can make it grow to an adequate size (proportional to the woman as the chicken’s egg is to the chicken)… let’s say we poach it (can’t hard boil it because it lacks a shell)… what would it taste like? (let´s add salt, of course).

So... do humans “taste like chicken”? :o

regards,
emilio

I suggest you ask your question on this forum: www.cannibalismtoday.org

If that link goes anywhere, I'll eat myself!

I always wondered why they called it the "Donner Party". Doesn't seem like they had a lot of fun.

I'm guessing you'd have very tiny caviar.

The needs of a mammalian egg and a chicken egg are very different.  A chicken egg has to have adequate fat and protein to support the entire development cycle of the chick.

The mammalian egg only has to support a few cell divisions until it can implant in the uterus and begin to absorb energy from the mother, although apparently a developing blastocyst can still absorb some nutrients before implantation.

Is it cannibalism if it is haploid,
Or is it only cannibalism if it is diploid?

Anyway, if you're wanting mammalian caviar...  perhaps you could try pork, beef, or sheep.
