Re: HELP! Willpower weakening! Yearning to buy barely-affordable luxury house!

Whenever I go to a restaurant in the tahoe area and they ask for the name and number in my party, I still cant resist saying "Donner, five". Its old but still gets a few chuckles from people waiting when they announce over the loadspeaker "Donner...party of five" and I jump up and somewhat loudly say "thank god! we were starving!".

Yep, some forensic folks looked at the camps and found no evidence of human consumption, particularly at the donner family camp. Apparently burned bones last a long time while unburned bones disappear fairly quick. Plenty of burned animal bones but no human, so either they didnt eat the people or they ate them raw. Ick. Ick ick ick.

After they call you for seating, yell out, "Sorry, better make that four. We were REALLY hungry, if you know what I mean!".

If you're gonna eat human, sushi style is the only way to go.

Two cannibals are eating a clown. "Does this taste funny to you?"

Favorite cannibal snacks? Finger sandwiches.

Cannibal boy: "I hate my sister." Mother: "Well just eat the noodles then."

Did you hear about the Catholic cannibals? They only eat fishermen on Fridays.

A man was captured by cannibals. "What," asked the cannibal chief, licking his lips, "was your job before you were captured?"
"I was a newspaper man," came the reply.
"An editor?"
"No, merely a sub-editor."
"Cheer up. Promotion awaits you. After dinner you will be editor-in-chief."

Two cannibals were sitting beside the fire after a sumptuous meal. One turned to the other and siad:"Your wife sure makes a good roast."
"Yeah, I'm really going to miss her."

What is the title of the best-selling cannibal book?
"How To Serve Your Fellow Man."

What did the cannibal get when he was late for dinner?
The cold shoulder.

A cannibal is a guy who goes into a restaurant and orders the waiter.

Did you hear about the cannibal student who was suspended from school for buttering up his teacher?

Have you heard about the cannibal restaurant where dinner costs an arm and a leg?

What do cannibals do at a wedding?
They toast the bride and groom.
