A fever for the flavor
Another interesting/amusing anthropology story: Our ancestors may have chowed down on hyenas at some point. Now for reasons mentioned near the end of the article, you'd have to be pretty hungry. Hyenas are scavengers, and not very selective ones. That could certainly effect both flavor and nutritional value. So if things got that desperate, the hyenas themselves may have been carrion. Yum.
