Okay, you can relax now, you made it through another Thanksgiving. Frankly, I like Turkey Day...it's the weeks of leftovers I can live without. But consider for a moment the alternatives. How does grilled rat sound? Or a deep-fried iguana appetizer? And for dessert? Forget pumpkin pie, pass the chocolate covered meal-worms. Mmmm! Now, these are only a few of the culinary delights sampled in Jerry Hopkins' new book, Strange Foods: Bushmeat, Bats and Butterflies: An Epicurean Adventure Around the World. Jerry's book contains some of the weirdest food we've ever heard of. He stopped by and we asked him if he'd actually eaten all of the "delicacies" listed in the book.
