So, you’re looking to explore cannibalism with your best friend but aren’t sure how to broach the subject? Don’t worry—we’ve got you. “Fleira má bíta en feita steik” literally translates to “You can bite into more things than a fat steak.” It’s so simple yet so eerie that it’s a perfect conversation starter for just such an occasion. Of course, your friend could misunderstand and think you are merely preaching veganism to them, but if the circumstances are just right and you are both utterly insane, your friend will understand for whom the bell tolls.
