noun. 1. A female cannibal who is probably cute, diminutive, and frightening. 2. A female member of the press.

Real citation: "Not to mention one cannibalette. That would be Jackie MacMullan of the Boston Globe, who spanked Manny Rameriz for keeping the bat on his shoulder too much after Boston's twelve-inning 6-4 victory in game four."
(Stewart O'Nan, Faithful: Two Diehard Boston Red Sox Fans Chronicle the Historic 2004 Season)

Made-up citation: "I don't really think of my little girl as a rabid, human-flesh-chomping sociopath who should be put down like a dog. To me, she's just an adorable cannibalette trying to find her way in the world."
