Run Rabbit Run Rabbit Run Run Run
I can always rely on sebatical to keep me up to speed with the drama of LiveJournal...

Seems there's this kid who ate his pet rabbit after it had died of natural causes... or perhaps he didn't and this is just an elaborate hoax to cause a bit of a stir. Whether he ate it or not doesn't worry me at all - the part that disturbs me is the cowardly anonymous types who feel the need to call him bad names and telling him how cruel and disgusting he is.

There are certain things I won't eat - but not one for the reason that "it was once cute." I believe that nature intended us to eat animals, I sure as hell know that other animals would eat me given half a chance.

I know LJ is a public forum of sorts (unless you hide every one of your posts behind the "private" security setting) by what gives people the idea that they have the right to go apeshit in someone else’s journal about something the majority of them are guilty of anyway.

The post reminds me of a story. My dad was born during WWII, and times were damn hard. His father bought two baby rabbits (at considerable cost,) and Dad adopted them as pets. He looked after them for almost an entire year. The following Christmas Dad's older brother told him he was eating his pet rabbit. He and Dad fought over it, and their mother broke them up demanding to know what they were fighting about. Dad told her what his brother had said, only to be informed that he was telling the truth.

Today this sort of event would have put a child in therapy for the rest of his life, but the only lasting effects this has on Dad is he won't eat rabbit.

I saw that post earlier in the week. It's amazing how many people are leaving comments on it about how he's a sick bastard.

The only sick thing about it is that someone actually ate rabbit which is far too greasy. They want to stick to chicken cat. Chicken cat fried noodles are a fave of mine.

chicken cat fried rice is better...

I like rabbit stew - that's generally made with "rancid" meat that's been left hanging for a bit - and it's very flavoursome! I guess the extra fat is diluted by the water.

Duck is another favourite of mine - and that is considered a bit fatty by some people.

Duck is just about the most putrid meat I have ever had.

Though to be fair, I have only ever had one mouthful, which I promptly spat out.

And it was in a rather dodgy Chinese, so it was more likely pigeon than duck.

And that was about 25 years ago.

Possibly surprisingly, given that I'm a vegetarian, I agree with you. If you're going to eat meat, why distinguish? People from other parts of the world have completely different ideas of what animals or even parts of animals are acceptable to eat, after all, it's just what's socially acceptable.

I would have thought eating the meat of an animal that had been ill wouldn't be such a good idea, though...
