Yes! I remember that song, but I never knew any more than the first two lines!

My life is complete.

everything from turtles and fish paste to frogs and duck feet

Three of these are fairly common fare - the author has lived a sheltered life.

You can get snapper soup (turtle) and frog's legs in restaurants serving plain old American food. If you've eaten in a Thai restaurant, you had something or other made with fish paste. I never heard of a dish including duck feet though.

. . . a few years ago , here in NYC, they nabbed an older fella , he caught flocks with an explosive charged net contraption IIRC , sold 'em to , ah er , well ....

Pigeons are not indigenous to North America. They were imported by settlers as a food source.

Turns out everything old is new again.

Fawlty offered rat to the health inspector, but of course Manuel referred to it as "Hawmster".

But the potential for serious disease is real, and it's a good bet that many of these poor immigrants don't have health insurance. So if they do get some strange disease from uncooked whatzit meat, they'll be in the ICU, getting treated on the taxpayer's dollar. Given that situation, and the risk of contaminating safe food supplies that most people prefer, some kind of regulation may make sense here.

Maybe someone should check our refrigerators daily to make sure that package of USDA inspected ground beef hasn't been thawed too long. While we're saving medical expenses, let's make children prove they have coverage to ride a bike or play ball. Both these activities cause more hospital visits than eating mystery meat.

You don't eat the cute animals, you make them into fur coats ;^)

That's the beauty, you can do both. It wasn't that long ago that some restaurants served marsh hare which was muskrat.

I've been to Chinese restaurants where duck (and chicken) feet have been on the menu, though I've never been interested in trying them.

"Located next to the Sex Change Hospital"

Sorry about this, but I'm now forced to post it...

Right next to a KFC at 47th and Troost in Kansas City is a Planned Parenthood clinic.

a West African grocery in Manhattan, the store was selling smoked rodent meat from a refrigerated display case

Ketchup extra.

Terry Pratchett fans understand.

Leviticus 11:21-23 King James Version
Acts 10:9-16
9 The next day, as they went on their journey and drew near the city, Peter went up on the housetop to pray, about the sixth hour. 10 Then he became very hungry and wanted to eat; but while they made ready, he fell into a trance 11 and saw heaven opened and an object like a great sheet bound at the four corners, descending to him and let down to the earth. 12 In it were all kinds of four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, creeping things, and birds of the air. 13 And a voice came to him, "Rise, Peter; kill and eat." 14 But Peter said, "Not so, Lord! For I have never eaten anything common or unclean." 15 And a voice spoke to him again the second time, "What God has cleansed you must not call common." 16 This was done three times. And the object was taken up into heaven again.

Moral of the story: God declared all meats clean. If you can kill it, grill it.
