I Couldn't Resist





From the same people who brought you that wonderful list of meats in a can comes 18 Delicious Rodents!

Smothered Muskrat and Onions, anyone? How about Three Bean Chipmunk Chili?

Love it!

It's kind of wierd that there recipes to eat my pets. I've heard that guinea pig is good, but I think there so cute so I'd probably never be able to eat one.

I sent a link for the list to my little sister--she's probably not going to talk to me for weeks on end because of this. XD

Nice list--I have a friend who love a good home-cooked gopher, so this made me think of him and smile.

When i was in Taiwan we went to this restaurant and the menu read like a zoo, it was disgusting. Needless to say we had vegetable soup. At least i hope it was...

"Nutria" sounds like some sort of health food, like Truvia or something.
Honestly, I think it's not that big a deal. We freak out about hamsters, but if you went to India a lot of people would freak out about beef. Gross is relative.

OMSC, that is so wrong. I actually have a hamster, and I was enraged ... They're not serious, right?!

Awwwww, there so cute! tough, I wonder why anyone would want to eat Barbeque hamster steaks. Or gerbil stir-fry. Or baked racoon with southern dressing.

Hazel has a REALLY good point you guys. I totally agree with her. It's not like eating a sweet little calf is any worse than that.

i think Hazel is right so we shouldn't freak out about this so much. think about it...if hamsters were the last source of food on the planet what would you do: (no vegetables or anything) starve, eat a hamster or eat a person. i think i would pick the hamster. besides i'm sure native people ate stuff like that all the time and didn't even think twice about it.

Reel Dancer, exactly what i was going to say. i remember in my social studies class we read about how some pioneers were trapped on the mountains for the winter, and when they ran out of food, so they ate the dead people. i mean ACTUAL DEAD HUMANS. so i am not a veghead, or a vegan, but i would never eat a hamster. hey kristen, my school's getting out this tuesday. do you think you could post a good- bye school, hello summer post for everyone. i would totally love to see a picture to go with it!!! will you be having a contest soon, i have this really cool thing, but i missed the other one!
thanks -LD

hey reel dancer i was reading the banned books post and i read what you said about the state you are in. i am pretty sure we live in the same state. so cool! everyone i talk to say that a blog for a book is lame, but now i know there's a fellow irregular in my state. that makes me smile. btw, does ur state have an "A" in it? just making sure.....

I'd say Hazel has a good point, yeah--but it is a culture thing, I think. People in other cultures eat crickets, dogs, in Germany you can get horse sausages (I've done it).
But we (or a lot of us--I don't know where y'all live :]) have been brought up in a culture where that isn't normal.
So I think it's icky to eat something as cute as a hamster. Even if "cute" and "icky" etc. are relative. Where I live they're cute lol. I wonder WHY.... *puts on wondering face*

Why does the link for the mice recipe have a picture of Stuart Little? *Shudders violently*

My best friend had guinea pig in Ecuador once. (She didn't know what it was until later.) She said it tastes like chicken. Yum!

Also, I've had rabbit and it's not so bad. We have this wild game dinner night in our town, and it's all roadkill, basically. The special is "bear balls". (Poor name choice... it's spaghetti and meatballs from a bear...) And there's a whole vat of something called "wild", which is roadkill that was so badly mangled or something that it's unidentifiable. Trust me, 3 bean prairie dog isn't as gross as a lot of other foods.

Yeah dangerous UR right all you guys are like "I couldn't eat a cute lil furry hamster"
and "Ewwwww thats gross"
but you eat pigs,cows,chickens,AND
a whole lota other LIVEING CREATURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm fine with you guys eating it don't get me wrong Its YOUR body let me tell you this what I think
if you where a lets say Chicken This is your life

You are hached stuck in a cage as big as a as a comix book
and the chickens are stackd on top of echether(that meens of the poop pee goes EVRY WHERE)
and when your big and fat people kill you and your made into chicken nuggets.

so at lest if your not a veghead ask you mom or dad to buy Free range chicken diner (That meens thay aren't in lil cages but its a little more money)

VEGHEADS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
