People Who Can Eat People Are the Luckiest People in the World[a] is the second studio album by American folk punk band Andrew Jackson Jihad. The album was released by Asian Man Records on September 11, 2007. The title is derived from a line in Kurt Vonnegut's novel Hocus Pocus[3] which itself is a reference to Barbra Streisand's song "People."[4] The album was recorded and mixed by Jalipaz Nelson at Audioconfusion in Mesa, Arizona.[1] The album artwork was illustrated by Ryan Piscitelli.[4] "People II: The Reckoning" features an interpolation of Simon and Garfunkel's song "Mrs. Robinson," and "Survival Song" features lyrics from Woody Guthrie’s "Do Re Mi."
