    Thank you Capt D. Porter for his emu recipe; emu are common in central New South Wales where he lived:

    “Put emu haunch in a large pot with a stone. Cook until the stone is tender, then eat the stone and throw the haunch away, because it will still be tough.”

    Saddle river, NJ: I love watching carp swim, they’re huge, and move with stealth. I never thought of eating them..
    People used to catch them, Obviously, a waste..
    They’re like mocking birds, and shouldn’t be harmed..
    Once in awhile you’ll see a Koi, also a carp from a flooded pond next to the Saddle river..

    Could you do me a favour ?
    And draw some beautiful koi carps ?

    I am a bit sad, i had these beautiful garden pond,
    where i sat in the morning, eating breakfast, feeding the koi.
    One morning i found them all dead.

    Here I was, thinking, wow, I’m going to learn how to cook carp!
    The ending was great.

    As far as I am concerned, I don´t feel seduced, to push away the Fugu – ragout.
