James Jameson and Cannibalism

James Jameson was once the heir to the popular Irish whiskey brand.

People love Jameson. I love Jameson. What about cannibalism? James Jameson apparently had a fascination for cannibalism. He once purchased a 10 years old slave girl in Africa in exchange for 6 handkerchiefs. He then presented the little girl to a group of people to be eaten alive. What’s disturbing is the fact that he sat there and watched, while making sketches of the entire process. I understand this happened over 100 years ago, but it is still a rather abnormal story.
