    It was so great. 10/10. I can barely breathe and I’m coughing all over the place, but it is delicious. Can’t wait to get my whole city under quarantine!

    And people thought roast turtle was strange? :}
    But seriously, in some places its eat what you've got or starve. And Daddy always said, "Try everything once." Good thing there aren't any fruit bats in South Dakota. Eww.
