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.
