heh, almost makes me wish it were legal to hunt seagulls here in the states.

I must admit, in all my years of eating wierd stuff, those two have not crossed my pallet

I forget which book it's in, but I've got something of a recipe for casseroled crow. I think it's in one of the Peter Wimsey mysteries.

I don't remember that in the Whimsey books, but it's been years since I last read them. However, to keep this thread flying along...

Why is it that western culture tends to not eat carnivores?

I eat crow all the time. It's what my wife calls "payback."

Then again, she's the idiot that divorced a perfectly good husband because she though he (I) was cheating on her when I was remaining loyal.

But that's another story, soon to be brought to you by my son, who's angry that Mom can't think straight.

I agree with my son!

No, you're right--it's not Wimsey (no "h")--now I think of it, it just might be Silence of the Lambs! (Hannibal Lecter and Peter Wimsey do actually have quite a lot in common, albeit not the whole "eating people" thing.)

I also have a much-cherished copy of The Little House on the Prairie Cookbook, which contains a recipe for, I believe, crow pie. (Like chicken pie, but not.)

I'm probably the only person in north america who's not seen, nor read, either of the books/movies on Lecter. Not my cup of tea.

On the other hand, I do have... somewhere... copies of the Mystery! episodes of Wimsey... both with Carmichael and with Fetherbridge (I think I've spelled both of those names incorrectly. It's monday)

No, perhaps not, but Hannibal Lecter knows a great deal about wine and gourmet cuisine and books and music. Sound familiar?

I'm not fond of the Carmichael Wimseys, but will hopefully be acquiring the other, far superior ones for a Christmas/birthday present this year. (I'm normally opposed to the Christmas/birthday present, but since most of my friends spend about $25 on each, I'm certainly going to accept one item at about $50 for both.)

Crows have reduced the songbird population in many parts around here, so if it keeps their numbers down, then I'll all for it.

Yeah, I do remember hearing that much about it, and I might have enjoyed that part of it... but the rest.. nah.

I agree - Fetherbridge was MUCH better. I put up with Xmas and birthday stuff too - mostly for the kids who seem to enjoy it, for some reason.
Back to Wimsey - normally Mystery! does an ourstanding job.. I'm very fond of the Campion series, for instance... but Carmichael was just plain wrong for the part.


hrm... this does seem to have wandered off topic a bit...
