    Default Rat, the other white meat.....

    With food prices rising, one of India's poorest states is considering adding rat meat to the menus of state-run canteens, a move officials in Bihar say could help provide cheap protein for the state's 80 million people, most of whom live off the land as poor sharecroppers or subsistence farmers.

    "People in different parts of the world eat lizards and dogs. Why not rats?" the state's tribal welfare minister, Jeetan Ram Manjhi, told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

    While the suggestion - there are no firm plans to start marketing rat meat just yet - may seem repulsive to many inside and outside India, eating rats is not unheard of in Bihar.

    Among the poorest people in Bihar are a tribe known as Musahars, whose traditional place in the India's caste system was to catch rats, which they would cook and eat along with the rice and wheat they recovered from rat holes.

    That's changed in the last few decades as many Musahars, under pressure from higher castes that consider rat eating unclean, stopped dining on the creatures, although they are still paid to catch and kill them by farmers.

    But Manjhi, who is one of Bihar's 2 million Musahars, says the rodents are tasty and hopes the practice could be revived and popularized by putting the rodents on the menu at canteens in government offices.

    "We've been enjoying eating rats since our childhood," he said. "When vegetables get expensive, it's what we eat."

    Another official, State Welfare Department Secretary Vijay Prakash, said last week that popularizing rat meat could also help Musahars, the vast majority of whom are bitterly poor and uneducated.

    India's elaborate caste system divides people into hundreds of social tiers defined by ethnicity, class, history and livelihood. Discrimination along caste lines had been outlawed for decades but remains prevalent, especially in largely rural and poor parts of eastern India like Bihar.

    What is the nutritional value of a clean, well fed, lab bred rat?

    Many of you think of me as extreme. I am not. I simply cut through all the bullcrap and go straight to the conclusion.

    For most of you, before your life is over - you will experience starvation and will likely feast on cats, dogs, rodents and eventually become cannibals.

    You guys are hung up on the details and the build up. You folks get obsessed with the process, rather than focusing on the end-game.


    Just accept the fact that most of you will die an unnatural death due to the population control schemes of the NWO.


    I say serve it up.....tastes like chicken!

    Mice and rats are the only thing that wolves eat, I saw that in a movie so it must be true. Man that was a stupid movie.

    Understood and well said. I simply meant that it would take a situation of no other options for me to consider eating an animal that I was brought up considering to be filthy. I am but a product of the conditioning of my childhood. But if I had to then so be it. Pass the worstchester sauce!!!

    Dogs, cats, and rats.......

    Well, ate puppy dog in Korea, not a bad meat, kind of tasty and at 0100, when you are filled with Korean wine, might tasty treat.

    Kitty kat, ate that a few years back, it was cold out, kitty was pulled right off the fire. Hmmmmmmmm........tasted real good and went down just fine.

    And last, the rat. I've eaten many a tree rat, a few muskrat, tried the fat rat beaver once. I must say, I'm not too fond of rat. But hey, if I'm hungry, I'll eat rat.
