Sacha Baron Cohen pranks foodie with 'ethically sourced human flesh'

Sacha Baron Cohen, left and in character, pranks food critic Bill Jilla into thinking he is eating "ethical" human flesh.
Anyone who gets nauseated when foodies pontificate about artisanal vinegars would have loved the comic Sacha Baron Cohen pranking a food editor.
The hook? He got editor Bill Jilla to try gourmet human flesh!
On the most recent episode of Who Is America, Cohen utilized his ex-con character Rick Sherman — apparently a neophyte restaurateur.
Cohen started the foolish foodie out with beans on toast before trying “veal, anally aged for eight days in a prophylactic.”
“This is the best braised veal I’ve ever had in my lifetime,” Jilla said with a smile.

Then, the main course: “vegetarian-fed Chinese dissident” with a side of cauliflower puree.
“Butter. It’s, like, butter-soft,” he said of the “ethically sourced human” dish.
“Who needs a knife? It’s melting on my palate. I do not even need to chew it.”
Cohen’s character then helpfully offers insight: “Their dissidents in China are kept in such narrow spaces that they become fatty over the years.”
And Jilla was thankful to the dead man’s family.
“To the Lao family, thank you very much,” he said after Sherman’s encouragement. “It’s truly an honour and pleasure.”
Jilla’s website has vanished since the episode aired.
