  1. OBITUARY. SHE WAS survived by…

    FOR ME, I NO FIT eat that soup o. I am badly selective of what goes into me in the name of food.

    @NG, BLAME not the guys. There is hunger in the land.

  2. First, Nigeria no be abroad. People dey hungry for Nigeria, una dey talk about animal museum. Hungry person dey go museum??? As for Metu, do you know what they sell to you in the market under different names? As a child growing up in the 60s and 70s, smoked vultures were sold under the guise of guinea fowl and one could tell the difference. People have been eating dog meat for the longest time, which is now a weekend delicacy in Badagary (I dare not tell my daughter who loves her dog so much and would spend any amount to make sure she is doing well, else she will never visit Nigeria again). Until we eradicate poverty, hunger and ignorance in Africa, people will eat anything to satisfy their hungry stomach. As long as they don’t eat human beings, every animal that tastes palatable to the human platelet is food…. chikena!

    • DEAR LOLA O., YOU ARE right, of course! But I can only eat this kind of thing unwittingly, even at that, it is very hard. You don’t know how I scrutinize my meat. You may be surprised to learn I do not eat chicken. In that case, there ain’t no posibility of my eating vulture. I like beef more than any other meet. But even there, I segregate. There is a shape the meat would come in and I would just discard it. Wierd, you might say. But that is me.
