Yep, it's another case of someone hitting the wrong button, and things taking a turn for the embarrassing.
Chicken or rat?
Could you tell chicken from rat when it's been properly prepared and cooked? (Perhaps not suitable for those of a nervous disposition.)

That must be rather embarrassing... (the wrong email thingy one)Posted by thunder in England on Mon Aug 21, 2006 at 05:33 PM
I suppose it would be pretty embarassing (as well)to find you had eaten a rat meal, thinking it was chicken (not to mention disgusting :O (ain't there a blowing-chunks smiley out there somwhere?)Posted by Christopher in Joplin, Missouri on Mon Aug 21, 2006 at 06:53 PM
Hmm. What have the rats been eating? If it's trash & yuck, their meat would not taste good. But if they've been raised for food, it would probably be OK. Possibly like rabbit (another rodent.)Posted by cvirtue on Mon Aug 21, 2006 at 07:13 PM
Actually, rabbits aren't rodents - they're in the Lagomarpha order, family Leporidae.Posted by Boo in The Land of the Haggii... on Mon Aug 21, 2006 at 07:34 PM
Sorry. Pedantism, I know.

Didn't rat meat used to be for sale in America--called Star Meat?Posted by Citizen Premier in spite of public outcry on Tue Aug 22, 2006 at 01:17 AM
Rat basically tastes like squirrel. Sort of greasy.Posted by Accipiter on Tue Aug 22, 2006 at 03:30 AM
Does this mean that without knowing it I could have been eating chicken all this time?Posted by rikitara in toronto on Tue Aug 22, 2006 at 11:52 AM
If you stick to eating the wings, chances are it's chicken.Posted by Wendy in Wellington NZ on Tue Aug 22, 2006 at 08:28 PM
Rat meat based foods are often prescribed by Chinese traditional doctors for men with infertility and suchlike problems - With good reason; Rat meat is high in testosterone and low in cholesterol. And usually the rats are bred for the table.Posted by DFStuckey in Auckland New Zealand on Sun Aug 27, 2006 at 01:58 AM
