Didn't Huckabee reminisce about his college days, cooking up squirrel parts in a hot air popper?

I'll defer to The Nuge on squirrel burgers.

Its supposed to taste like chicken flavored with rabbit.

I don’t know if making burgers out of rats with bushy tails makes them more edible.

I love it. But I broke a crown on a BB once. You have to fully trust your prep and chef.

This sort of thing is how Africans acquire Ebola and AIDS.

Stick to beef and chicken, please.

There was an episode of Bizarre Foods where Andrew Zimmern met with an American Indian tribe in northern Maine. In keeping with their traditions, beaver meat is one of their main staple foods. Since that’s not too far from Liz Fauxcahontas Warren’s neck of the woods, I wonder if she eats beaver? Not insinuatin’ nuttin’, just sayn’

I haven’t been squirrel hunting in years. This burger looks good to me. We have squirrels almost as big a house cats in my neck of the woods. You can bet this will be a menu item if S ever hits the F.

A Squirrel is a Rat with a Press Agent.

In my town, plenty of grey squirrels on every block and in the local park.

Now there’s a way to get Hillary and Fauxcahontas together for a meeting.

I haven’t had squirrel since boyhood, I don’t even remember what it tasted like.

Bushmeat, you see: Rodents = rabies. Viral mutating diseases are quite the rage these days. Look in any newspaper.

Stick to chicken and beef.

The ancient Romans used to raise "tree squirrels", actually dormice, as a delicacy.

I was never big on rodents, myself.

Although, "Joy of Cooking", maybe until the 1960s, had instructions for skinning/dressing/butchering squirrels.

Not sure why. Various sources say there's 8 to 16 ounces of meat on a squirrel.

Apparently in UK it takes 1.5 to 3 pounds of meat to make a quarter pounder.

All meat consists of the same protein molecules. Only the flavors are a bit different. Even poisonous snake meat can be consumed by humans because the body of snake has no poison. In overpopulated countries such as China, people can not be fussy about which meat should be consumed.
