  1. More bad news....

    "The price of rat meat has quadrupled in Cambodia this year as inflation puts other meat beyond the reach of poor people, officials say."

    "Spicy field rat dishes with garlic thrown in have become particularly popular at a time when beef costs 20,000 riel a kilogram."

    "Rats are also eaten widely in Thailand, while a state government in eastern India this month encouraged its people to eat rats in an effort to battle soaring food prices and save grain stocks."


    Rats are under rated. Just check your dictionary.:cool:

  6. LOL! Good one.

    I've got a dog that eats poop. Likes it warm. Sometimes, "right out of the chute". Gross... I know. Gives a new meaning to "doggie breath".

    Wonder if it tastes like politician?
