As we say in my family...one less for dinner.

Is there a potential market there for squirrels?

Or how about English Cuisine?


"A kilo of live rats costs US$2".

Why, when I was young, you could get 100 kilos of rats for 10 baht.

I can't decide. Is it:

Temporary lay offs.
Good times.
Rat meat on the menu.
Good times.

...or:

Rat meat on the menu.
Everybody knows that rat meat ain't allowed in school.

ligirl, we need a consultation.

Hey, I know they scurry in the shadows, take our possessions, and leave filth everywhere.
But I cannot recommend eating politicians.

I was at a business dinner in Hanoi a few years ago when the soup came around. A collegue of mine, also from the U.S. commented about the gamey taste of the meat in the soup. About that time, a lady across from us, a Vietnamese, commented about having the best rat soup she ever had. Needless to say our appetites went south.

My students in China were minorities from the southern region. When the annual Anti-Rat Campaign came out, they were saddened at the loss of so much good food to being poisoned.

Apparently it tastes like chicken.
