It's all in the mind

Hot chillies with false pork cooked in fat, Deserved a second serving of that; As he put down the dish, The waiter stated “I wish more Aussies like you would eat rat.”

Oh man! We hope at least it was trapped and not poisoned. I don't know that I've ever eaten rat, but it is probably somewhere between snake and rabbit (yummy)

Hello Duke... we eat meat pies and sausages down here; they're affectionately known as mystery bags. Does that include rat meat - who would know - Lindsay

Hello njeri... this limerick probably only works in certain countries because there are places where rats are eaten but of course rats are rodents and rodents are quite diverse in genus - Lindsay
