    Yeah, I expected to be served a bag of rice from a UNICEF box, but it was different veggies with interesting spices. One thing of beef that was on a bone and it didn't look like a part of the cow you usually eat from...but it wasn't bad. The sweet tea was great, I don't know what it had in it, but it was different from any tea I've had before.
    This is the place...

    Isn't that the place that got the 12 on the health score?

    ... no seriously I've heard that place is pretty good my friend has invited me out there a couple of times, but I've yet to feel adventurous.

    That one was pretty odd looking when he was walking around slowly with his back legs extended.

    What was the last shot of? A crouching roo? A dingo eating a baby? Yet another Minogue?

    The Tick #6. Nice :)

    How about Emu? Tried it once and it was good... I hope it's common down there :yes:

    My sister lives just down the road from an emu farm. They're interesting birds and really quite loud. The meat is pricey... they don't taste like chicken.

    Contrary to other birds, Emu is red meat. Ugly looking bird, but quite tasty.
