Interview with Ottis Toole concerning his cannibalism:
Interviewer: "Tell me how you cook a young boy or girl."
Toole: "After the fucking then you strip them naked and hang them upside down by ankles; then slit their throat with a knife, slit the belly and take out the guts, the liver, the heart. Cut off the head. Let the blood drain."
Interviewer: "Do you have a big fire?"
Toole: "A pit. A bar-q-que pit. Charcoal so there ain’t much smoke. Take down the body, put the metal spit through them. Put it into the asshole, through the body and out the neck, wire the meat to the spit, put it on the spit-holder over the coals. Damn tasty."
Interviewer: "Just how does a little boy bar-q-que taste, Ottis?"
Toole: "Same as a roasted piglet. Boys and girls taste about the same when you roast them 8 to 10 years old. The flavor is a shade different when they’re teenagers. The boys are gamier than the girls. Give me the roasted meat of a boy age 14 and a girl age 14 and I can tell the difference when you use a spicy sauce."
