Human Flesh For Sale For Cooking at Manbeef.com-Fiction!

 

 

Summary of eRumor:   
The email says a shocking thing is happening at www.manbeef.com: the website is marketing human meat for human consumption.  You are encouraged to protest by putting our name at the bottom of the email and circulating it among all your friends.

The Truth:

 
 
This is an elaborate hoax.  www.manbeef.com did exist and had disgusted multitudes of people who have visited the site.  It claimed to be an online meat market that could provide you with gourmet cuts of butchered human meat.  The site was well designed and included pictures, illustrations, and recipes.  According to a July 14, 2001 article in The Columbian, however, the creator of manbeef.com admitted that it does not market human flesh and that the whole set-up was a joke
