This is just plain nasty!

Farmers in Thailand and the Philippines are celebrating the Year of the Rat by eating rat meat.The farmers aren't just eating the rats, they're profiting off the rodent's newfound popularity among diners.The farmers are catching the rats in their fields, grilling them and selling them to people wanting a non-conventional culinary experience.Among the recipes being served include rat stew, rat with rice, grilled rat and poached rat. Poached rat? You gotta be kidding me! Kind of takes the juice out of all the dog jokes though, doesn't it? Yummmmm!
