clamoring for rat meat

“Rising food prices in Cambodia has a particularly strange consequence: it makes rat meat more popular as inflation has put the price of other meat out of the reach of poor people!

Spicy field rat dishes with garlic thrown in have become particularly popular at a time when beef costs 20,000 riel a kg.

Officials said rats were fleeing to higher ground from flooded areas of the lower Mekong Delta, making it easier for villagers to catch them.

“Many children are happy making some money from selling the animals to the markets, but they keep some for their family,” Ly Marong, an agriculture official, said by telephone from the Koh Thom district on the border with Vietnam.”

Lisa posted one of the funniest blog posts I have seen in a long time. You MUST go check it out. I had to post this particular video, for many (MANY) reasons.

I’m a little uncomfortable with the violent breathing technique and the fact that she doesn’t address it.  Creepy.

Thanks for the laughs, Lis! You really outdid yourself (and the rest of us!) with this one.

Happy Hands?

At first I was creeped out. Then I was drawn in. Pretty creative, actually!

I think I saw a triple sow cow in there. Also, monkeys apparently get christmas sweaters over sequined leotards when they skate. Go figure.
