This doesn’t have a whole lot to do with gambling, but I found it pretty funny, and slightly disturbing. According to this article in The Sun, squirrels in England are going nuts for squirrel-flavored potato chips.
If you’re like me, that article raises a few interesting questions. Especially: why the heck is somebody making squirrel-flavored potato chips? According to the article, it’s just one of six new flavors. And it’s supposedly inspired “by the taste in parts of the United States for grey squirrel, which is served up in…Brunswick stew.”
Not to be squeamish, but if I ever sat down to a nice stew that turned out to be made from that cute little fella I fed peanuts to down at the park, I’d probably swear off meat entirely and stick to a diet of fruit and veggies.
