    "During the last Great Depression in the 1930’s road kill was considered a table delicacy for many who would otherwise be going without meat. Deer, various birds, rabbit, bear, raccoon, even porcupine and a variety of other animals killed by vehicles and left lying on the side of the road became an important source of protein for many a family.

    An important feature of road kill is that the hunting has been done for you. There the animal lay; all you need to do is pick it up, skin it out, and cook it up. A gift from the Gods a hungry man should not pass up!"
    "During times of natural and manmade disaster or economic collapse food sources can quickly dry up. It’s amazing how preconceived food prejudices are soon rejected when real knawing hunger sets in. After a few months without enough food and you will think nothing of eating insects, worms, rats, or anything else that comes your way. Served with wallpaper paste a nice road kill raccoon roast would be a seriously welcome addition to the dinner table."

    "Smogarian"= older politically correct name to use for generic nationallity/race.

    How many smogarians does it take to eat a possum? Three, one to eat two to direct traffic.

    A delicacy for many reasons - I'm sure it was pretty rare for one thing - how many people were still driving, and how many people were driving fast enough to hit an animal that ran out infront of them!

    Nowadays we have it easy! I don't think there's a single day I've driven out to our property in Marcola I haven't seen dead deer on the road, or had to stop for live deer in the road!

    If was was indeed hungry... not a problem. But if I was that hungry I might eat the operator of the vehicle too.

    This is starting to sound like the prologue to the Donner Party Cookbook.

    LOL- DO NO EAT ROADKILL - unless you want to become sick. OK if you 'just' hit it and didn't rupture any internal organs, but bleed it and get it under ice FAST!

    I knew someone down in the Medford area that had this big 2x4 bumper on his f-150, whenever he seen a deer in the road he said he would floor it.

    But lets not forget the little critters too, with some Tabasco they can be good eating, just carry a shovel and bag to scoop 'em up and put 'em in.

    Lyric to Road Kill Cafe
    http://www.allthelyrics.com/lyrics/arapaho/road_kill_cafe-lyrics-592035.html

    In the still of the night or day
    There's a thumping sound on the highway
    What looked like a river was a road
    With headlights for eyes and bumpers for toes
    Bozo cruises at full speed ahead
    Mr Jack Rabbit is seconds from dead
    Blinded by a flash from heaven
    Smashed by heavy metal from ****

    Get a load of this
    It might not be your kind of scene
    At the Road Kill Cafe
    They do not serve novelle cuisine
    If you like variety
    Come and have a seat with me
    At the Road Kill Cafe
    You won't find a cup of tea

    Fur-lined burgers for the fur burger crew
    Crunchie munchies on bumpers to chew
    The Road Kill menu with body and soul
    Always come wholesale but not always whole

    Get a load of this
    It might not be your kind of scene
    At the Road Kill Cafe
    They do not serve novelle cuisine
    If you like variety
    Come and have a seat with me
    At the Road Kill Cafe
    You won't be paying V.A.T.

    Get a load of this
    It might not be your kind of scene
    At the Road Kill Cafe
    They do not serve novelle cuisine
    If you like variety
    Come and have a seat with me
    At the Road Kill Cafe
    You won't find a single flea

    Guy walks into a small resturaunt and sees an old guy sitting at the counter with his head in his hands and looking into his bowl of chili. Young guy is hungry and no service so he asked the old guy"are you going to eat that?" Old man says no, go ahead.

    So the young guy is just chowing down like crazy till he gets to the bottom of the bowl and comes across a dead mouse with it's guts hanging out. Imediately he pukes it back up into the bowl. Old man mutters"yep same thing I did":D:D
