Okay, I DEFINITELY just threw up in my mouth a little. The only thing more puke-inducing would be seeing Lena Dunham eating it, in the bulky buff.
CHICAGO (AP) — Officials say U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport thwarted a man’s attempt to import several pounds of African rat meat.
Customs spokesman Steve Bansbach said Tuesday that the man declared the 32 pounds of meat on June 26 when his flight arrived from the Ivory Coast. The meat was confiscated and destroyed.
Bansbach says the man did not face a fine and continued on his journey because he was forthcoming about what he was bringing into the country. He says customs officials prohibit the entry of African meats to prevent the spread of African swine fever.
In fairness to the poor rat-munching slob, he’s from a primitive, backward part of the world, and his culture is not our culture. Too, when a man gets hungry enough he’ll eat anything. And where he hails from, it can oftentimes be a choice between rat and starvation. They don’t call it the Dark Continent for nothing, you know.
Hell, I hear some of the beastly savages in this world’s more benighted places even favor dog meat for vittles, considering Fido filet to be just good eatin’.
Appetizing update! Seems like a good excuse to sneak this tasty old classic in.
