The Roger Post: "Only fermented shark carcass for me, thanks"
One person's delicacy is another's revulsion. There are reports that Wal-mart stores in China are recalling donkey meat because gasp, fox meat has been found mixed into it.
There was a scandal in Europe last year when horse meat was found ground into cow meat. I'm curious about the point where you go, "honey, pass the donkey burger. What!? There's fox in it! Oh my God! I couldn't possibly eat that!"
Eat the horse, ride the cow
Is there really that much difference between a horse and a cow? Both roam the plains and eat grass. Is it because we ride horses and not cows? Is that what makes eating a horse disgusting to Americans? What if we rode cows? Would we be grossed out eating them?
Oh and they worship cows in India. Like, it's a sin to kill a cow if you are Hindu. Anyone for grilled Jesus?
There was also a scandal where rat meat was being served by some Shanghai street vendors. But what if it tasted really good? Would there be a scandal. In South America they eat coypu or nutria, all day long and that thing is basically a giant rat, but it's meat is low in cholesterol. I bet if you mixed some coypu into a hot dog in Argentina, you'd have a hit restaurant.
Mom, more monkey paw please
In Africa they eat "bush meat," you know, lizards, eagles, chimpanzees, bonobos and gorillas.
Imagine a mother in Africa trying to get her kids to eat, "but honey, it's chimpanzee! Just take one bite, you used to love it."
In Iceland, sharks that have been buried in the ground for six months are considered the height of cuisine, and they tend to use basking shark, like the one harmless shark in the ocean who has no teeth, just swims slowly and eats krill.
Oh and by the way? Lobster, crab and shrimp? Sea bugs. I mean look at them, they are giant aquatic insects that you would stomp on if they lived on land.
Me? I like salami and SpaghettiO's, so who am i to judge?
