To cleanse the palate at the end of a long week. I don’t know what got him going about this; I assume he was complaining about lockdown orders and speculating about what he might have to do to survive if the economy collapses.
But I prefer not to know the context. It’s more enjoyable imagining that he was riffing about the Fed or coronavirus patients being “crisis actors” or whatever and somehow this is where his thoughts ended up.
If the epidemic has taught us anything it’s that we should be prepared for all eventualities in life, however unlikely. So I ask you: Do you have a plan to kill and eat your neighbors?
