Michelin star, they always say the same thing: "It tastes just like chicken."
Really? Then why not eat chicken? Consider the benefits: it's less dangerous to catch, you're not going to get hurt waiting around the interstate for someone to hit one with a moving vehicle, and you don't have to talk anyone into eating it using suspect chicken similies. Everybody wins, even the snake.
Well, the chicken doesn't win, but there is always sorrow in this imperfect world.
