All Meat Tastes Like Chicken

I received this from my sister-in-law:


I can’t claim this NYC story for myself but it is one of my favorites. Natasha & Curtis can correct me if I get the details wrong. Our good friend Curtis was out for his morning run in a nearby park. Not many people were in the park but he did notice two men looking suspicious so Curtis circled the park a few times keeping an eye on them. They were surrounded by lots of pigeons which they were feeding. Then he noticed a box propped up with a stick and rope tied to it. As he circled the park again, he noticed these two men were actually catching the pigeons in their trap. They would catch a couple pigeons, wring their necks, and shoved them into a bag. Of course his curiosity was now piqued so he followed the men from a distance. Unfortunately, they entered a chinese restaurant bag in hand, straight for the kitchen. Guess they were all out of chicken. This restaurant is no longer in business. True Story.

    Pigeon is a very common and tasty dish in China that I’ve eaten on a number of occasions. Pigeons are also 1 of only 3 birds not protected in North America from hunting, etc. So technically, these guys could serve pigeon, as long as that is what they claimed to be serving :) Of course, it also has to come from an approved FDA supplier, etc.. Too Funny.

    Glad to know that you can vouch for those who have eaten pigeon. I’m also glad to see that you’re reading my blog. :)
