"Raccoon meat is some of the healthiest meat you can eat"....

Uh, okay. I was reading Drudge today and came across this article a href=”http://www.mcclatchydc.com/251/story/59566.html”on the popularity of raccoon meat:/abr /br /blockquoteRaccoon, which made the first edition of a href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0743246268?ie=UTF8tag=wwwviolentkicomlinkCode=as2camp=1789creative=9325creativeASIN=0743246268″emThe Joy of Cooking/em/aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=0743246268″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”” style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” /br /in 1931, is labor-intensive but well worth the time, aficionados say…..br /br /Those who dine on raccoon meat sound the same refrain: It’s good eatin’.br /br /As long as you can get past the “ick” factor that it’s a varmint, more often seen flattened on asphalt than featured on a restaurant menu. (One exception: French restaurant Le Fou Frog served raccoon about a dozen years ago, a waiter said.)br /br /Eating varmints is even in vogue these days, at least in Britain. The New York Times reported last week that Brits are eating squirrels with wild abandon.br /br /Here in Kansas City, you won’t see many, if any, squirrel ads in the papers. But that’s where Brownsberger was advertising his raccoons last week.br /br /The meat isn’t USDA-inspected, and few state regulations apply, same as with deer and other game. No laws prevent trappers from selling raccoon carcasses./blockquotebr /br /In Tennessee, it a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Burchett”is legal to eat road kill,/a so I guess eating raccoons doesn’t sound so far-fetched. I am not sure if I could stomach it, but then, I have eaten escargot in France and other foods that sound just as unusual. br /br /What is the weirdest food you’ve ever eaten? Was it good?
