#10 'I've eaten many strange and scrumptious dishes in my time,
Like jellied gnats and dandyprats and earwigs cooked in slime,
And mice with rice - they're really nice
When roasted in their prime.
(But don't forget to sprinkle them with just a pinch of grime.)

'I often eat boiled slobbages. They're grand when served beside
Minced doodlebugs and curried slugs. And have you ever tried
Mosquitoes' toes and wampfish roes
Most delicately fried?
(The only trouble is they disagree with my inside.)

'For dinner on my birthday shall I tell you what I chose:
Hot noodles made from poodles on a slice of garden hose -
And a rather smelly jelly
Made of armadillo's toes.
(The jelly is delicious, but you have to hold your nose.)

#12 An epicure, dining at Crewe Wu,
found quite a large mouse bat in his stew,
said the waiter, “Don't shout,
and wave it about,
or the rest will be wanting one, too!

#13 Nice.

Confucius say, "Marketing rat
Auspicious this year! Can't fall flat!
Key selling points: Glatt,
Halal, very low fat...
And let's call it 'terrestrial bat!'"
