Cannibalism Puzzle


I finally got my internet consistently working and into this thing. I heard this riddle once, and then I found it on the internet and it is funny.

Two men went into a restaurant. They both ordered the same dish from the menu. After they tasted it, one of the men went outside the restaurant and shot himself. Why?

. . . . . . . . . .

The dish that the two men ordered was albatross. They had been stranded many years earlier on a desert island. When the man tasted albatross he realised that he had never tasted it before. This meant that the meat he had been given on the island was not albatross as he had been told. He correctly deduced that he had eaten the flesh of his son who had died when they first reached the island.

there are a bunch of riddles on this site (<--- i have safari, not explorer, not sure if this will show as a hyperlink)
