So what I’m wondering is, how did they know what a cockatiel tasted like in the first place?
And who has the job of sucking the birds’ feet to find out if they got it right?
And if that one isn’t out there enough for you, how about some Lion Tacos? Yes, a restaurant in Florida was making tacos out of lion meat. Note the past tense. After Uproar, Florida Restaurant Pulls Lion Tacos Off Its Menu

Campaign Style Poll Daddy Question of the Week
All the best to all of you for a week of good taste.
“It’s not actually made of chopped out little birdies.” Funny. I can make the same claim about my book! Thanks for the shout, Piper.
LOL. You’re welcome, Leanne. All the best to you, and congratulations on your book. I have my copy and look forward to reading it. 🙂
Insert joke about how that ice cream is a fowl flavor =) Great stuff as always Piper!
Oooo! Good one! Thank you, Clay. 🙂
I keep thinking about the feathers I would be spitting out. Spittuuuueee!
Thanks for the inclusion Piper! Have a fabulous weekend. 🙂
LOL. Great point, Susie. A great weekend to you, too. 🙂
It’s like saying, “This bird-flavored ice cream tastes like crap.” Who possesses that sort of knowledge? And if you do, why would you publicize the fact? (Rhetorical questions – I really do not want to know.) – Mike
LOL. I don’t want to know either. 🙂
The Japanese have a taste for odd foods. This might be a good thing because we’re running out of some of our staples and the space to raise and grow others.
Ever since I tasted sushi, it has been my contention that the real reason behind Pearl Harbor was that the Japanese wanted to conquer us to get to our cattle. 🙂
Have you tried Kobe Beef? It’s God’s second use for beer.
True. I’m thinking the Japanese commoners are the ones who wanted our cattle. The ones who couldn’t afford the pampered cows.
I’d eat Pikachu-flavored ice cream. I think.
LOL. I always thought “Pikachu” sounded like a misdemeanor, myself.
We have beer flavoured ice-cream here in NZ (seriously – it’s ‘Speights Old Dark’ flavour, and the beer’s real too, I used to drink a lot of it). But nothing that has the flavour of a bird walking through your mouth. Why am I glad about that…? Oh wait, I know… -)
LOL. Me, too. Talk about tastes I never missed! 🙂
I love your Friday posts. Somehow, you manage to come up with all the best things the Internet has to offer.
Plus, I am now officially moving to New Zealand for the beer ice cream. Seriously.
Thank you, Susan. I want to visit you in NZ. 🙂
Lord- what a post! I`ve got my notebook handy. Thanks for the shout out and so glad you enjoyed! I would have responded earlier, unfortunately I`ve been off the grid after my Dad passed. That`s when you know you`re too far from home. Thanks P!
I’m so sorry to hear about your father! Many prayers for you and for your family.
