chicken or rat

July 1, 2007 6:44pm CST
Friends told me that rat meat taste like chicken, and that is why in many parts of third world countries, they use rat meat to con customers as chicken meat. I remember vaguely seeing a picture about this in China, and read news about this in India, and even London as my dad told me that in the 50s and 60s, some restaurants used rat meat as chicken meat, and cat meat as chicken meat (as there were a lot of missing cats). I am beginning to get paranoia about this as in some very cheap butchers and cheap cheap supermarkets, chicken meat taste awful. So is it me or there is some truth in it?

That is disgusting.even though I have not tried it, I highly doubt rat meat, or cat meat tastes anything like chicken. Frankly, I am having some turmoil in my stomach just thinking of eating rat or cats. Eeeew... Iam sure one can tell the difference.

Apparently, you can't tell the difference. Only if I can find the pictures friends emailed me a couple of months ago.
