I have had gator sasuage, mostly just to say I have, and was not impressed.

I also had turtle soup once. Like gator it has this odd twang to it's taste. Since then I have given up on reptiles all together. Of course I have grown up and have a real job. The next time I'm in New Orleans and there is gator on the menu, I'll order the ribeye; extra rare, please.

I expect that like with all meat, there is a difference between farmed and it's wild equivalent. I'm guessing some of the gator meat sold in places like Louisiana comes from culling wild gators for population control (no sense letting it go to waste). What I had was from farmed gator, and was a pale off-white colour. It tasted sort of like pork.

What exactly does having grown up and have a rel job have to do with it?? its a sense of adventure.. oh and not to cool to eat turtles. way uncool.

In many jurisdictions, turtle soup is illegal because many species of turtle are considered threatened or endangered, and cannot legally be captured and killed. Generally speaking, turtle populations cannot quickly recover from the loss of a breeding adult, thus, killing these turtles to make soup can depress populations below sustainable levels.

I think Jacinda was just saying that she has changed a lot since the days when she liked to eat weird food, and was using that as an example.

Also, there are many places were turtles are farmed.

I don't get near as hungry as I did when I was young :p

Of the odd things I had tried, I think ants are up there for taste. They are actually sweet. If you ever get the chance, try some. I don't know what kind of ant they were but they did not look like the common ants from my yard, tho. So don't just run ouside and start acting like an aardvark.

Locusts are nice too. Chocolate covered locusts particularly. That is about all the weird food I've eaten though.

Funnily enough, yes. I dry-cure my own bacon. It still needs to hang for about a week before it's ready though.

Oh, BTW, I did not know it was turtle soup until after I ate it. Turtle (or more likely tortoise) is still a common dish in Mexico. But then so is Iguana.

"Funnily" is one of those words I REALLY want to find fault with, and in clear conscience I can't.



Oddly enough.

Peculiar, isn't it?

I hear people use the term "bidded" as past tense for "bid" in the context of auctions. It makes my fists itch.

People forget how many different species of turtles there are. Green sea turtles are sensitive to over-hunting, but the likes of snapping turtles are basically the turtle equivalent of rats. They're a pest species and they breed like rabbits. Sea turtles' young are easy pickings for predators, but in garden ponds snapping turtles are unlikely to have that problem. I assume snapping turtle tastes much the same as the more traditional sea turtle anyway. I'd love to try it, personally.

I just don't imagine there being much meat on them is all. I mean, they look big with the shells on, but how much is there in there once you get it off?

I think that I shall ne'er peruse
A poem lovely as a moose.

A moose whose thirsty mouth is press'd
Against the river's flowing breast;

A moose that looks at God all day;
And lifts his antlers up to pray;

A moose that may in summer wear
A mess of vermin in his hair;

Upon whose backside snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like youse,
But only God can make a moose.

(Listens for Kilmer spinning in his grave)



Whoa. That was so damn awesome. I Lol'd.

Surely a boy moose and a girl moose can, together, also make a moose?

The doctors described the thread's condition as "stable". That means we're not out of the woods yet.

Anyone know any good jokes?

I'm open to hearing bad jokes, if it will save the life of a thread.
I'll go first.

Four nuns enter the Mother Superior's office.

MOTHER SUPERIOR: I've asked you all to come and see me because I've noticed that none of you have been to confession in months. Even though we have pledged our lives to the Lord, we are all only human and as such are all creatures of sin. Are you all sure there is nothing you'd like to own up to?

FIRST NUN: Umm....I have. I kissed a man. It was a moment of weakness.

MOTHER SUPERIOR: (mildly taken aback) Okay, well you will have to do penance. Two Hail Mary's, three Our Father's and make sure to rinse your lips thoroughly in the holy water.

SECOND NUN: I.....well....this is rather embarrassing.....I touched a man's...you know.....thing.

MOTHER SUPERIOR: (horrified) That is appalling! Ten Hail Mary's, five Our Fathers and make sure to rinse that hand thoroughly in the holy water!

THIRD NUN steps forward to confess, but before she can, FOURTH NUN steps up.

FOURTH NUN: (pointing at THIRD NUN) Look now, if you think I'm going to gargle with the holy water after SHE's rinsed her ass in there, you can forget it!


Disclaimer: I'm not Catholic, so I have no idea if these penances are realistic. Thankyou.
