    And here I thought rat tasted like chicken (I often eat lamb, which tastes nothing like chicken. I have had “mystery meat” in SE Asia and the RP which did taste like chicken).

    There are worse things than eating rats ya know, like caviar. That stuff tastes like what I imagine bird droppings taste like.

    Rat tastes nothing like lamb. It’s definitely more chicken-y, with a slight taste of pork due to the fat.

    Ick, to me, is a fish disease that can be a problem in poorly maintained aquariums.
