Emu and Ostrich farming used to be a thing up here until about 15 yrs ago or so. Back in working days, I used to handle insurance claims under a program my employer sold for Emu & Ostrich farms. I was told by more than one of the ostrich farmers that McDonalds was considering using ostrich meat (yes, a "McOstrich burger") at one time but obviously that never went thru. Bison meat is/was readily available here and yes its very lean and tasty. I've had alligator nuggets while in Florida and yep, they are good. :)

I shall take your word for that Mikey, I have never eaten any of the animals listed and prefer to stay with chicken and cows. The English are not known for being adventurous. I have a few Ostrich leg watch straps purchased from Thailand on ebay and they are fantastic but I draw the line at eating them.

Yourkshire puds are harmless and only consist of flour, egg and milk. Black pudding however is a different kettle of fish. Most people make the mistake of not ensuring it is dead before consuming it with disastrous results. Eaten mainly by the northerners of england. We from the south tend to eat fish and chips with a pickled onion or a wally. Very safe.

Wally was used 20 odd years ago in the uk to signify a fool but has long sinse gone out of fashion only to be replaced by stronger terms A pickled gherkin [ very small cucumber] has been known as a Wally since the eighteen hundreds in the east end of london and continues to be used by the older generations. Tastes wonderfeul with chish and fips as londoners say.
