    As a born (US) Southerner, I should believe that anything is good battered and deep-fried, but frying rats is going too far. Those are rats? There’s some risk one might eat one buy accident. I wonder if the hair has been removed.

    Living in China, perhaps you can clarify something for me: is rat-eating a legacy 20th century starvation diets, or have rats always been on the Chinese menu?

    ps, thanks for visiting my blog

    If it moves they eat it.

    If it doesn’t move, they kick it until it moves.
