#1 Perhaps Dr. George Wilson could explain to the sheep producers how much wool per head they can expect the roos to yield or is he just a freakin moron.

No wool, but Kangaroo hide makes some mighty fine leather. Maybe we could all go back to wearing buckskins...er...`rooskins! :-)

#4 Had some 'Roo' years ago excellently prepared by Chef Warren at the Bat 7 in Kuwait City. Followed up with a lovely sticky date pudding....very tastey indeed.

#5 Wait till the gals in PETA find out roos don't fart. They'll make it illegal to kill them.

#6 I can't imagine that the kangeroos have zero emissions, but they may have lwess than cattle. Kangeroos may be browsers instead of grazers. This may account for the difference. If that is the case, then a more planet-friendly alternative for Americans than Black Angus cattle would be porcupines. We may need longer handles on our knives and forks, though.

#9 Because Hannibal, you have really no idea where it's been (and probably don't want to find out - there are some things better left unknown...).

#11 I have lived in Australia. I still think of k-roos as giant rats. There isn't much meat on those hoppers.

#12 The best meat is in the tail.

BTW, emu meat is good. Doesn't taste like chicken at all.

#13 Hey, I'm sure I ate kangaroo when I had burgers at Jack in the Box back when I was a kidlet. ;)
