Which Came First? The Rabbit or the Chicken?

We are much more vigilant these days about animal rights.

Our grandparents didn't have any problem eating the pet pig for Sunday Dinner, drowning unwanted puppies or putting a good horse down.   No-one carried on like a porkchop about it.

Well unless you count the grandkids hanging onto their legs screaming, "no no please don't shoot fluffy!"

I can tell you one thing for sure, I don't care if the animal could fit into a tea cup or a purse ... no-one put them in there.   Tea cups were like gold ... you might not have anything else to spit in, but believe me each woman, when married, was give a whole bunch of flowered tea china tea cups.  Some countries give cows for a dowry but on the Canadian prairies ... a woman was worth her weight in fine bone china tea cups.  Tea cups sat on the display shelf so everyone could see them and "ooh" and "ahh" over the roses and little blue bells. Animals were outside hiding from the grandparents ... especially the ones with guns and their dinner napkin already tucked.

We did have one woman that pushed a bunny or a chicken around in a wheel barrow but the prairie winds are known for creating madness and when you are already voted "most likely to form loving bonds with chickens or rabbits" in your highschool year book ... it was bound to happen.

Besides everyone knows that rabbit tastes like chicken and when it came down to a choice between sanity or dinner ... the rabbit and the chicken were both delicious.  

We just considered that an early fore runner for "take away" foods.
