Tremendo bicho, picadillo sabrosísimo

Yes, Cubans have resorted to eating the potentially lethal snails that have invaded the island’s ecosystem. What’s next, cannibalism? Why not? Woke culture sees nothing wrong with it. The journal New Scientist has published an article that suggests that the consumption of human flesh should not be viewed negatively because the taboo against it is another manifestation of systemic racism. Yes, it says, our Western repugnance towards cannibalism is “culturally ingrained, with roots in early modern colonialism, when racist stereotypes of the cannibal were concocted to justify subjugation.” Wake up!, says this article. Get woke, comrade! Turning to cannibalism is a perfect way to “decolonize” our inherently evil and racist culture. “If a body can be bequeathed with consent to medical science,” asks this article, “why can’t it be left to feed the hungry?”

Loosely translated from Cubanos Por El Mundo

Hunger and misery in Cuba is demonstrated in every hardship that its people must endure, including their daily search for a way to feed themselves and survive, even by eating potentially poisonous and bacteria-ridden snails.

Recently, a Cuban recorded a video in which he shows a quantity of African snails and explains that with the meat he is going to prepare a hash to eat.

This Cuban, aware that snails are poisonous, assures that hot water and salt are used to kill them, but since salt is very expensive, he did not use it.

“Me with those Angolan snails, that’s the meat, look how meaty that “bicho” (bug) is, and with that I plan to make an Angolan “picadillo” (hash), with a lot of sour orange, if I can find any, of cours,e and two or three other little things to kill the poison”

“Don’t worry about that, I’m going to try it first with the house dog, I’m going to give it to him at lunch and if the dog doesn’t die, I’ll eat it at lunch,” said the man. in a video published by Cubanos por el Mundo.

In Cuba there is a shortage of food and what is available has very high prices, which represents a problem for Cubans because the salary they earn is insufficient to purchase what is necessary for food.

In addition to this, there are known complaints from Cubans themselves about the terrible quality in which they are selling food in Cuba, as is the case of picadillo that comes with worms and croquettes that explode, among others.

Cubans have fallen into despair of eating whatever they find. In this case, African snails are poisonous and if a person consumes one of these that is infected, the worm can be transmitted and cause meningitis.

There is also the possibility that snails can spread salmonella and other bacteria.
