I think they're all edible, but there're restrictions on butchering/trophy-making on some civs (Dwarven included), can be changed in the raws.

Might be time for that humanoid processing mod, then.

Elves do it in trees. Humans do it in wooden structures. Dwarves? Dwarves do it underground. With magma.

Furthermore, are the bits of humanoids found in some Funhouses edible?

i.e. the elf, dwarf and human meat sitting around in the hole of shiny good blue stuff?

I'm too much of a veteran to have anything to ask about.
I know the three solutions to everything; fun, carp, or magma.

But I can shamelessly plug my link repository.
I have all kinds of stuff there, that might save you having to ask your question.  Check it out.
See the link in my signature.

Sadly no. In other news, I am pleased that I was able to outstare your avatar.

Christ, are you dwarves or are you elves? If you think Hell has too many demons, then you kill them till the population reaches an acceptable number.

I recently acquired a handful of Rhesus Macaques and want to start taming them. I tasked the tame animal task a few times at the kennels and waited. My animal trainer didn't tame any of them, the tasks vanished from the list and none of the captured rhesus' got a tame tag.

What am I doing wrong here?

Also, will big piles of items laying around cause a significant performance hit?

Thanks for any answers!

I thought only your Dungeon Master could tame exotic creatures.

Rhesus Macaques are not exotic, any dwarf can tame them. It's possible you have no food the rhesus monkeys like - though I'm pretty sure it uses a default "food" requirement not requiring meat for carnivores and plants for herbivores, for example. It could be there's no path to them. Try building the cages, I haven't tamed wild animals in a while but that could be the problem.

Well I've had gobbo seiges even on my small fortresses (80 population is very much incorrect, I can say that at least) but still no megabeasts.

Goblins have three triggers in their entity file - population, created wealth, and exported wealth. If you pass any of their thresholds, they siege. So 80 population, massive exported wealth, or massive created wealth will trigger them, not necessarily all three. I'm just guessing you were producing lots of wealth.

Also note that dead dwarves count towards this total. If due to some dwarfy funtm your 80 population fort has 10 live dwarves burying the other 70, the goblins will still be triggered and arriving soon.

Which Tame Animal are you using? I often find myself choosing Tame Small Animal, thinking Tame Large Animal is for big stuff like unicorns, bears, or megabeasts. But Small is vermin, Large is everything else.

Yes, though the values of "big" and "significant" may vary.  :D
Just about everything you do adds to what DF has to keep track of. With enough items you'll start to feel it. When and how bad may depend on your computer.

Building the cages fixed it.

Thanks for the help!

Maybe your fort is so well-protected that it simply can't find a path to the entrance?

If I melt my metal barrels/bins containing drinks/items, will the dorfs think about pouring/transferring them into another barrel first, (and when they will be mass-designed)? I learned the hard way that dumping the wooden ones is very good cleaning - everything goes.

New dilemma! Two of my champions have started sparring! Except..they haven't stopped sparring. In fact, they have been sparring for so long now that they are both getting pretty close to dieing of dehydration.

How can I make them stop?

Stopping champions sparring... put them on duty, they should realise they need to drink. Walls+ceiling is impassable, flying creatures don't understand that they can fly over walls but occasionally do it by accident.
