I went to Florida several times, each time saying I would try alligator meat, each time failed to carry through. It is just like chicken, they say. Finally, had it in a soup, in a restaurant in the Vancouver Island, BC, a most unlikely place to have it! Yep, it was just like chicken.

A restaurant near me used to have fried rattlesnake nuggets. One day, decided to go there to try it, but they no longer have it on menu. Guess, I will have to go to Texas now.

In Sydney, I made a reservation at a downtown restaurant specialized in 'roo meat. I got cold feet and made a no-show. A fellow forum member told me that I missed out, that it was my loss.

Eating dead, cooked things is not adventurous at all. Go for the gusto and try "live food."

DW was walking by when I opened the post with the picture. After seeing it and asking why I was looking at stuff like that, she said to say "thanks".

Truthfully, that's not exactly what she said, but I'm sure that's what she meant.

Reading all your posts, I have certifiably come to the conclusion that you all are the most awesome people on Earth.

Following advice from Yahoo is like listening to the advice of the weasel in the chicken house ...

Long live freedom from the cubicle!

At first reading I thought it said, "I have certifiably come to the conclusion that you all are the most gruesome people on Earth".

But, as usual, I was wrong...
