Bush Meat - Not for veggies

Sheep's head meat from Iran, dried pork pot noodles from Japan and yoghurt balls from Lebanon. These are just some of the illegal culinary delights seized by environmental health officers in recent months.
Councillor Will Brooks, cabinet member for environment and transport, said: "Sheep's head meat from Iran may be a delicacy for some, but it's illegal to bring it into the country for consumption on British dinner tables.
Many specialty shops may not know they are breaking the law by bringing in food from countries outside the EU to provide their customers with a taste of home.
Despite border controls, some illegal imports find their way onto the shelves as a result of deliberate smuggling.


Har, har – bush tucker, anyone?

I'm still laughing at Dried Pork Noodles being illegal, but Pot Noodle isn't. Vile stuff. You know if you ever spill spicy beef pot noodle on your sister's cream carpet that stain will be there to haunt you forever?

as does burning it with a fag.

But, that stuff's a bagatelle when you see the animal perts dripping from hooks in forn parts.
It definitely brings out one's veggy tendencie, even if you never knew you had them.

I will ignore the opening for "bush" jokes you have provided.

Don't let GB hear you mention bush meat. He's very sensitive on the matter.

Those who know say that human flesh is by far the tastiest of all the primates. It's supposed to taste like succulent pork.

Thought about posting a comment about the first time I served the German EMBLOS squirrel in gravy, but I thought better of it.

Cheers.

I do agree with doccy about the animal parts on hooks. I am a keen cook, but I haven't yet managed to properly prepare a chicken, it has to come supermarket style without head, feet and innards. A raw chicken feels a bit like a baby to me! I even get queasy taking the innards out of a sardine. Surgical gloves and look the other way while doing it by feel under a running tap! Make of that what you will, doccy!

Pah, If you are willing to eat sheep why not dog face or whatever the hell it was?

Just legalise it and tax the imports. I don't give a crap as long as they mention what they are putting in your "pie".

Kitten pie sir? Drowned 'em myself.

Shit, shit, shit. I'm absolutely addicted to sheep's head meat. I currently live in the US and hope a ban is not imminent here.

It depends which part of the human you go for, and where they're reared. Most Scots, for example, taste like aniseed, whilst anyone from lower-Swabia has all the flavour of Steffi Graf.
