I thought of nothing else.

“When the chips are down, these civilized people, they’ll eat each other.”

Baby Burrito

There were many possible titles for this particular image. It is both amazingly adorable and grotesque in its insinuations. We tapped into several social media communities to try to find the right title, finally going with the quote from the Joker during the interrogation scene from The Dark Knight.

A very notable honorable mention goes to the kralrick. “A modest proposal for the modern age” brought back memories of Jonathon Swift’s satirical essay, A Modest Proposal for Preventing the Children of Poor People in Ireland From Being a Burden to Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Public.

The title is long and the essay is even longer, but the gist is that poor people in Ireland in the 18th century could sell their children for rich people to eat. I think the image above would fit perfectly with the proposal.
