The other, other other white meat...

The New York Times(possibly requires registration to view):

Tobias Schneebaum, a New York writer, artist and explorer who in the 1950's lived among cannibals in the remote Amazon jungle and, by his own account, sampled their traditional cuisine, died on Tuesday in Great Neck, N.Y. He was in his mid-80's and a longtime resident of Greenwich Village.
The Advocate:
Tobias Schneebaum, an openly gay explorer and writer, has died at this home in Great Neck, N.Y. He was in his mid 80s, and the cause of death was due to Parkinson's disease, Schneedbaum's nephew told The New York Times. Schneebaum gained fame after he lived among cannibals in the Amazon during the 1950s and claimed to have eaten part of a human heart. He was featured in the 2000 documentary Keep the River on Your Right: A Modern Cannibal Tale, in which he returned to the Amazon and Indonesian New Guinea.

You will note that I skipped the obvious 'we will be serving finger food at the reception following the service' joke - this is a high-class establishment we run here, after all.
