    I think that would only work if you stuck your fingers in your eyes since you're reading this.

    Pretty damned sure. We don't eat out that often, and when we don't go to "unique food stands" with strange smells emanating from the kitchen and animal traps in the alley out back.

    As far as meat, I'll try anything once. Never had racoon but I would probably try it, as long as it's cooked right. One of my favorite meats is goat and just look at how cute they are
    No, no, no goats for me. I found a baby pygmy goat in our pasture once, all shivering and cold with its umbilical still attached. I cuddled it in towels and warmed it with my body. It snuggled its head in my armpit, sighed and went to sleep. I fell in love with that sweet thing... was crushed when we finally found the ranch it had wandered away from and reunited her with her mama.

    I don't eat cute things. In fact, I won't eat anything that I have personally met, which is why my husband's gung-ho desire to raise our own pigs, beef, and poultry was doomed to failure. Once I looked into their little eyes, I named them and that was that.

    I want my meat the way God intended... neatly sliced and wrapped in cellophane. So there.

    I closed my eyes. Pay attention.

    City folk really need to spend a year living out where the wild things are just that, WILD. You need to go to foreign countries.
    Well, I don't exactly live on a savannah, but I do live in a place where wild animals abound... as in sleep under our deck, wander up our driveway, mate under our dining room windows, and lurk behind rocks ready to inject venom into our flesh!

    I appreciate the problem of feral cats. We try to feed as many as we can because we love cats so much, but we just won't leave the food out there overnight. I'm serious when I said mountain lions... we've got 'em here, and when you see one of those massive pawprints in the mud outside your garage door, you really don't want an introduction to the creature that owns the paw.

    Let me tell you one of my favorite sea stories, it's a real story and here is what happened:

    We pulled into Pusan S. Korea for a few days, so we all went out and did our thing. Everyone wanted fast food, I forgo McD's and other American joints (cept france, I just HAD to order a Big Mac and a beer ) and eat local fare. There were some old ladies with tents and little gas hibachi's selling what looked like hambugers. Cost me 2 bucks and I even got a coke with it. Of course, she fried an egg and put a cucumber on it but hey! When in Rome...

    So I bit into it and was aware IMMEDIATELY that this was NOT in fact, beef. Ate it anyway, good eats, didn't get sick. One of the gals was disgusted, worried about the "beef" out of her cooler she had gotten to cook my burger. When I pointed out that it was not beef she didn't believe me. So I dragged her into a grocery store and showed her the price of beef where we were. 8 bucks a pound. There was NO WAY my big fat burger was beef for 2 bucks.

    One of the local ladies there spoke english and over heard us, she said "Most of them, they sell rat or dog meat, that's what you ate" I just smiled and she had to run out and retch. Hilarity.
    Awww, poor lady. The only difference is that I probably wouldn't have eaten anything that was unrecognizable to me, especially in a foreign country. Which probably means becoming vegan for the duration of the trip!

    I'd be willing to give it a shot. I need some more animals to add to my list of odd eats:

    Alligator - Phenomenal
    Octopus - Good, if cooked properly
    Ostrich - Horrendous
    Eel - Fantastic
    Rattlesnake - Great
    Shark - Decent
    Duck - Awesome
    Antelope - Fantastic

    Eel and shark are two of my favorites. A good piece of shark is like eating a white steak.

    And I love moose and deer. They are my absolute all time favorites.

    These things are not cute; therefore, they are legitimately edible. (Except for duck... ducks are cute, especially the ones that frolick in our pond.) I would try everything on that list except duck.

    Most of those aren't that odd to me. I consider Snake, Antelope and Eel to be the actual "odd" ones. Alligator, Ostrich, and Shark are borderline "odd", IMO, so they qualify, but barely. And Duck and Octopus are fairly common, depending on the type of restaurant you go to so I wouldn't even say they qualify. I get Duck at Chinese and German restaurants all the time and Octopus is very, very common with Italians.

    My list of odd meats I've eaten:

    Horse: Just plain nasty
    Turtle: Delicious
    Rattlesnake: Too Chewy for my tastes
    Alligator: Very nice when fresh
    Swamprat: Tasty as hell, my favorite of the odd meats I've eaten.
    Ostrich: I love it
    Shark: Not really my thing, but it was OK.
    Buffalo: OK, this one is very borderline, tastes a lot like beef. I like it.
    Wild Boar: Again, very borderline, but also vary tasty.


    I've also pretty much eaten most of the more common, but slightly odd meats such as Duck, Vennison, Quail, Phesant, Swordfish, etc.

    Note: I typically avoid all things from the sea though, due to an extremely bad shellfish allergy, and I don't EVER want to deal with it again, so I don't risk anything from the sea since they are often prepared on the same grills, fryers and such as the shellfish is.

    For both shark and swordfish I prepared them myself.
