I'll Just Have a Hamburger

Mice, anyone? Making a meal out of mice in Malawi - Yahoo! News: "LILONGWE, Malawi – Cooked, salted or dried, field mice strung on sticks are sold as a popular delicacy in Malawi markets and roadside stalls.

The mice are hunted in corn fields after the harvest when they have grown plump on a diet of grains, fruits, grass and the odd insect. The most widely eaten species is known locally as Kapuku, gray in color and with a shorter tail than the more common rat."

As long as they're free-range mice I see no problem.

They clearly are. And delicious, no doubt.

Would you like ketchup and fries with that MickeyBurger, sir? As you can see, I am putting my Liberal Arts education to work.
