Fried squirrel

I've seen an awful lot of jokes about fried squirrel lately. Maybe some people have been wondering how Huckabee could be crazy enough to mention that on television. For many of us, it's easy to forget that trapping or shooting a squirrel can be the difference between having meat and not having meat for some of the rural poor. Nobody who was even in that situation, or knew anyone in that situation, will be impressed by the sneers.

Hey I agree. If you're hungry, eat. If you're really hungry, eat anything. I've been 'forced' to eat bugs and whatnot-- without other food they can be quite tasty!

We Cubans will eat anything the walks, crawls, flies, swims, or slithers.
