The End is Near (and we deserve it) . . . Bird Flavored Ice Cream

So what I’m wondering is, how did they know what a cockatiel tasted like in the first place?

And who has the job of sucking the birds’ feet to find out if they got it right?

And if that one isn’t out there enough for you, how about some Lion Tacos? Yes, a restaurant in Florida was making tacos out of lion meat. Note the past tense. After Uproar, Florida Restaurant Pulls Lion Tacos Off Its Menu

Unpublished authors often dream that their days will be filled with writing books, leaving it to agents and publishing houses to sell them. Ha.

  1. “It’s not actually made of chopped out little birdies.” Funny. I can make the same claim about my book! Thanks for the shout, Piper.

  2. Insert joke about how that ice cream is a fowl flavor =) Great stuff as always Piper!

    I keep thinking about the feathers I would be spitting out. Spittuuuueee!
    Thanks for the inclusion Piper! Have a fabulous weekend. 🙂

  4. It’s like saying, “This bird-flavored ice cream tastes like crap.” Who possesses that sort of knowledge? And if you do, why would you publicize the fact? (Rhetorical questions – I really do not want to know.) – Mike

    The Japanese have a taste for odd foods. This might be a good thing because we’re running out of some of our staples and the space to raise and grow others.

  6. I’d eat Pikachu-flavored ice cream. I think.

  7. We have beer flavoured ice-cream here in NZ (seriously – it’s ‘Speights Old Dark’ flavour, and the beer’s real too, I used to drink a lot of it). But nothing that has the flavour of a bird walking through your mouth. Why am I glad about that…? Oh wait, I know… -)

    I love your Friday posts. Somehow, you manage to come up with all the best things the Internet has to offer.

    Plus, I am now officially moving to New Zealand for the beer ice cream. Seriously.

  9. Lord- what a post! I`ve got my notebook handy. Thanks for the shout out and so glad you enjoyed! I would have responded earlier, unfortunately I`ve been off the grid after my Dad passed. That`s when you know you`re too far from home. Thanks P!
