On the Menu

Beijing, China


It's been said that the only 'legged' thing the Chinese will not eat is a stool. Snakes have zero legs. Snails & clams have one leg. Primates have two legs. Stools have three legs. Most mammals have four legs. Sea stars have five legs. Insects have six legs. Sea stars have seven legs. Spiders have eight legs. Sea stars have nine legs. Crabs have 10 legs if you count the claws. I suppose we will the sea star from now on for all the uneven numbers!

Yesterday I stopped at a restaurant that had crocodile in pumpkin on the menu. I passed.

[Although I have eaten alligator. And yes, it tasted like chicken!]
