Some people heard Australia and made the mental jump to Kangaroo meat, I
suppose. [Pun intended, of course.] Like we don't produce enough beef
on this continent? And you know how squeemish we USAns are about meat
from "cute" or just non-standard animals.
That being said, now I find myself curious how Kangaroo tastes. I hope
it is better than Ostrich, which is pretty darned blah.
