Mmmm. Tastes Like Turkey!
I’ve ranted off an on over the years about the plaguey b*stards with fluffy tails that run roughshod over my yard, streets and power lines. They eat the insulation off of cables. They eat all the plants out of the ground. They eat all the apricots off my favorite tree (and holler at me when I try to pick a few so I can make a nice pie.)
In case I’ve been too mild on this topic, I’ll say it out clear: I hate squirrels.
So I smiled to myself when I saw this headline linked off of CNN.com: Give Squirrel a Whirl
Yes, you of tender tummy and mild disposition, they’re talking eatin’ squirrel on the Eatocracry blog.
“The general consensus was that it tasted more earthy and sumptuous than the darkest turkey they’d ever tasted”
Now, I may not actually want to have one of these somnabitches on my dinner plate, but I’ll certainly help with the supply chain. If this trend takes off, I’m sitting on a gold mine over here.
The only trouble is…The Good Man won’t let me fire a bb gun at the rodents. He says the neighbors might not approve…you know, owing to the fact that my bb gun aim has never been right.
Rodent, it’s what’s for dinner.
