Papua New Guinea police arrested 29 members of an alleged cannibal cult and charged them with the murder of at least seven suspected witch doctors.

“They don’t think they’ve done anything wrong; they admit what they’ve done openly,” Madang Police Commander Anthony Wagambie told The Associated Press in a report published The Telegraph of London.

The alleged cannibals—eight of whom are women—ate their victims’ brains raw and made soup from their penises, according to the report. The 29 people were part of a group of about 1,000 who are against the sorcerers charging increasingly higher fees, the AFP news service reported.


To hire a witch doctor to reveal a cause of death or cast out an evil spirit, one must pay 1,000 kina ($475) cash, AFP reported, along with a pig and a bag of rice, but some sorcerers were also asking for sex as payment.

“It’s against our traditional ethics and morals for a sorcerer to have intercourse with a man’s wife or teenage daughter,” a local cult leader in the Tangi area, inland from Madang province on Papua New Guinea’s northeast coast, said, according to AFP.

    Gee up until now, I had thought food was one good thing about diversity.

      Customer: “Waiter, there’s a penis in my soup!”

      Waiter: “Whaddaya expect? This restaurant is in West Hollywood after all.


    These Papua New Guineans need better education in economics.  If you eat the penisus of witch doctors, it decreases the supply of witch doctors, and raises the price for witch doctors.

    Instead, they should import thousands of foreign witch doctors, which would then drive down the price.

      Indeed, the free market is the solution for all problems.  I will donate my personal copy of Atlas Shrugged and await this problem’s rapid resolution.


      They could also solve the problem by importing tens of thousands of penisus, thus driving down the price of that commodity, and eliminating the market for witch doctor penisus.

      Geez, can’t theUN or some NGO’s get on this?   I mean, what are they for?

    I’m moving to Papua New Guinea; personally speaking, I’m bloody sick and tired of paying over £1000 for Brain Tartare.
    And the price of penis-soup in London these days is just attrocious!


      Penis-tartar-Papau in Hollandase sauce?

    Jared Taylor and AmRen are stuck in the past.  They think that “all cultures are equal” is still a mantra of the egalitiarians and humanitarians.

    Catch up!

    “Embrace Diversity by Celebrating Differences” is the new slogan, which admits that all cultures aren’t equal, and is enforced with “White privilege makes Whites not value, tolerate, and include other cultures, therefore, we must eliminate White privilege”.

    “All cultures are equal” is not a war cry against White privilge.  “Diversity” is.

    Diverse often is really Perverse.

    ‘Kuru’ a deadly brain disease was spread by the Papuan practice of eating human flesh.

    I’m always surprised that Papuans haven’t (yet) emigrated en masse to the west, I’m puzzled to why they have not, personally I think they are too attached to their native land to go,and would rather put up with hardship than live amongst strangers. Perhaps I’m wrong, but I am surprised that a large ‘Papuan community’ doesn’t exist in London, living in council estates somewhere.

      “I’m always surprised that Papuans haven’t (yet) emigrated en masse to the west”

      Probably because all those Minnesota Lutherans who went to fetch them were never heard from again. Questioned about their disappearance, the Papuans merely shrugged. And burped.

    Didn’t Jared Diamond say this are the smartest people on Earth? Must be all that brain food.

  • Rocky Bass,

     I don’t think that places distance behind civilization is measured in even thousands of years.
