    We used to fight over the rabbit tails! Don't remember what we did with them.

    Yup! I went to Peru last month to visit a friend, and I tried it at a local fiesta near her town. It's pretty big down there. It was tasty, probably not the sort of thing I would actively seek out, but if it was in front of me, I'd eat it again.

    I watch No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain and he ate them when he was in Peru.

    I'm not sure that I could, but I'm sure I've eaten things I'd rather not know the origin of when I was in Egypt and India.

    Probably a couple of years ago, I saw where women in Peru (I think) earned livings by raising guinea pigs as food; it enabled them to take care of their families. I had forgotten all about that. I guess when it comes to providing for your families, you will do whatever you have to do. Don't think that they see them as pets like we do in this country.

    Fried coke? The beverage, not the powder? How do you fry a liquid?

    No, definitely not. My friend's host family keeps their guinea pigs out in their yard, just like the pigs and other animals. Some people keep them in their kitchens, but not in little cages like we do in the US, and they had a couple dozen guinea pigs, not a couple. It was a pretty popular dish at the fiesta, deep-fried, and it sort of looked like a chicken wing, except that on the end, rather than a nub or something, there were tiny little claws.

    Also, easier to eat if you aren't thinking about what it is.

    You know, I do eat meat for health reasons (other allergies, etc.), and I've traveled to other countries and tried octopus, questionable sausages, and other food that some Americans might find "weird," and I quite enjoyed them. The thought of eating guinea pig limbs, however, is just disgusting.
