Actually, I eat babies. I AM an American, y'know.

What is Michael Dorn doing now? I saw an interview with him on the tube a while back. Very different without the make-up. Voice wasn't as deep, either. He must smoke a few coffin nails before going on the set. He was doing voices for a kiddie cartoon (he had young children at the time of the interview).

Does anyone remember that Rene Auberjonois was Father Mulkahey in the movie MASH? Doggies! I just looked him up. I thot he might be a good ol' Cajun boy, but he's from Neew Yawk! He worked on the stage with Katharine Hepburn once. He's gettin' on now--needs that latex on his face.

As I remember it, I used have horse meat back in Paris in the 50's. It was pretty good and tender. I remember enjoying it with some "authentic" french mustard.

Although, I rarely eat meat except for chicken and fish, I enjoy meat and would eat pretty much anything put in front of me if it tasted 1/2 decent. Had chitlins many years ago, wasn't that great. Maybe it wasn't prepared well.

Re: Canadian Seal Hunt

MJ,
I had a dim sum off a street vendor in Johor. It looked like a ground chicken meatball and was very succulent. It turned out to be minced earth worms. I felt kinda sick but managed to keep it down.

justin,
do you have Mr. Swift's recipe. I seem to remember boiling was the best?

Rule #82: Never eat dumplings or meatballs unless you see them made.

Re: Canadian Seal Hunt

MJ,
I was on the Flying Scotsman from Edingurgh to York and some old soldiers were headed to London for some event. They had on all their medals, etc and they were drinking Scotch and ginger ale. They were talking about eating a horse during WWII and all agreed it tasted great.

Evidently in Paris you can get monkey meat and here in Chicago there are lots of recent African immigrants and the stuff they eat for lunch looks kinda suspicious.

Sir, I'll have plantains and a monkey foot. Extra gravy with that foot please.

Ever since I was apprised of the fact that in some scandinavian countries that sausage is considered a vegetable, my vegetarianism has gone much better.

But did it taste like chicken before you found out?

I have several fears that might shorten my life, one of them is dying from food poisining, as I am a bit adventuresome when it comes to food ( I need to get hepatitis shots), another is being shot by a husband while caught sleeping with his lovely 20 year old wife. Oh, I forgot, the last one is only a deathwish fantasy.

Was it a Tailgator special from Bojangles? That might explain the gator taste.

(Bojangles is a regional fast food chicken restaurant in the southeast US)

Re: Canadian Seal Hunt

Come to think of it, it was also reminiscent of cobra.
