Cannibals in Barbados

Now I was just browsing through some of the keywords that people use to access this site and realised that someone searched on Google for 'Cannibals in Barbados' and got to this site.Now rest assured I don't have any idea of who it could be or where they have come from for those who are paranoid about those things....

Barbados today is a place that welcomes all but I have a strange feeling that cannibals are not welcomed.....and maybe never were.
