Neato. Thanks for the link.
KFC is one of the companies using the fake shiat, but at least they call it "Honey Sauce" and not honey.

one-in-the-chamber: I remember an article on npr or someplace a few years back about these country folk liked to eat squirrels, but it was giving them some kind mad cow type disease. (insert pun here). just watch a few episodes of bizarre foods to see americans eat the most repulsive sh*t. (to me). if the meat is handled safely what difference does it make? it's a cultural thing. I figure as long as you don't sell me a pinto and say it's a Cadillac, i'm good. we look at dogs and cats as our little friends. but have a heart attack home alone and see if a week later EMS doesn't find you on the floor with no face. but fluffly will be doin' just fine.
meat is meat, so shut up and eat your horse (if you want any pudding)


Tularemia I believe is what you are thinking of. nasty little disease.

Actually, no, he's actually speaking about a TSE--which does have the informal name of "mad squirrel disease"; basically people in parts of Kentucky (particularly western Kentucky) who ate squirrel brains (which, as weird as it sounds, are actually considered a delicacy among squirrel hunters in that part of the state) came down with a vCJD-like (aka "human mad cow disease) illness and died.

Yes, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife and the health departments in those parts of Kentucky DO have to give advisories to people not to eat squirrel brains because of the risk of catching a spongiform encepalopathy.  (Of note, "mad squirrel disease" is also about the only TSE that is well documented from having occurred in humans from consuming nervous tissue of animals that live in North America.  There aren't known cases of vCJD arising from chronic wasting syndrome/"mad deer disease", the OTHER major spongiform encephalopathy we have to worry about in wild game (then again, CWS is a new enough TSE that it's entirely possible cases haven't gone symptomatic in humans yet--if so, there's a longer infective period than with most TSEs); despite one or two cases of BSE found in cows in the US (all in dairy herds, of note), all known vCJD cases in the US (known to be linked to BSE) are from folks who spent time overseas and consumed beef in Europe or the UK during the height of BSE spread.)
