Back a long, long time ago, I was at a Cajun supplies store in New Orleans. They had an in-store kitchen, and for $10 you could sit through a cooking class, and eat as much as you wanted at the end. The teacher told a joke about the decision to make alligator jambalaya. Alligator cost $10/pound. Alligator tastes like chicken. Chicken cost $3/pound. If you’re making dinner for a bunch of guests who can’t tell the difference, which are you going to buy, the $10/pound alligator, or the $3/pound alligator?
Chicken tastes like whatever you put on it. Skinless chicken breast is the boiled potato of the animal world.
It tastes like chicken, because it is, indeed, chicken, sir.
So what does chicken taste like? (And do NOT say “chicken”!)
He’s been reading popular science articles, and he expected it to taste like dinosaur.
“Waiter, there’s a fly in my chicken soup.”
“Ah, but worry not, sir. I’ll bet it tastes just like chicken.”
I just love the artwork and colouring in this comic.
