DailyDirt: Exporting Weird Meats

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Some people don't eat meat at all for a variety of reasons, and some omnivores are just picky about the types of meat they eat. There are a lot of other animals besides cows and pigs. Here are just a few less commonly consumed meats that seem more suitable for exporting. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Artificial meat

    I can't wait 'till we start using that artificial, lab-grown meat we've been hearing about. Wonder what a panda, or tiger would taste like? Or maybe even... a human?

    Re: bronies

    Brony here, and your comment made me wonder:

    Perusing the source article, they only mention horses, but would these rules really apply to equines in general? I have had tasty donkey sausage (har har), but it was not for sale. I am told that it is a traditional Spanish dish.

    The AP article is inaccessible, so I am at something of a loss.

    "And US researchers somewhere are working on genetically modified chickens to grow more than two feet..."

    More than two feet long, that's one large chicken!

    "Puerto Rico is planning to get rid of its overpopulation of iguanas by exporting the meat of this lizard."

    Illinois should start doing the same thing with its Carp.

    "Or maybe even... a human?"

    I believe the technical term is "long pig".

    "Horse flesh isn't expected to become a widely popular entree in the US, but some 200,000 horses per year could be processed and exported."

    How about dogs? Cats?

    Instead of shipping them up here to Canada for us to house and feed.
