Chickens taste like dinosaurs

[-] [email protected] 37 points 1 month ago

I used to raise chickens. They are the closest living relative to the tyrannosaurus rex, and it shows.

Chicken are dinosaurs, and taste different than ducks and goose which are also dinosaurs.

[-] SatansMaggotyCumFart 2 points 1 month ago

With my wife’s cooking everything tastes the same.

I play the beef, chicken or pork game every night.

In the same way that apples taste like fruit.

If you have had duck, chicken, goose, and pheasant you have already have had some dinosaur!

With the wide variety of dinosaurs they would have had even more vsriety than we have with modern birds. Just like with the wide varety of fish and mammals.

I feel like turkey, cornish hen, and maybe quail are more common as food than pheasant and goose. At least in the US. If you're European maybe you put live blackbirds inside pies or something, I dunno, but I guess that's technically a dino meal too.

Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye,

Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened the birds began to sing,

Oh wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?

The king was in his counting house counting out his money,

The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey

The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes,

When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose!

Moral of the story, don't be a minor character in an 18th century nursery rhyme.

For entertainment purposes. The birds would fly out when the dish was uncovered.

[-] spittingimage 3 points 1 month ago

I've always wondered about the blackbird pie thing. How did they get the birds into the pie? How many escaped during the pie-ing process? Were there originally a lot more than four-and-twenty? If they shit on any half-prepared food during the escape, was it thrown out or served to the cheap seats?

[-] angrystego 3 points 1 month ago

This is the correct answer.

[-] [email protected] 25 points 1 month ago

Probably like chicken or other bird meat, since birds are a type of dinosaur!

[-] captainlezbian 10 points 1 month ago

I love that paleontologists have begun saying non-avian dinosaurs

[-] [email protected] 7 points 1 month ago

I'd also include it's consistent with alligator. Tastes like chicken but the texture is chewier

[-] [email protected] 22 points 1 month ago

Dinosaur meat would taste like petrified wood or rocks because it's 65 million years old. Duh!!

[-] ripcord 10 points 1 month ago

(petrified wood is also rocks)

Probably like gator meat.

[-] [email protected] 10 points 1 month ago

People say reptiles are tastier than chicken, the thing is chicken is mass produced at an industrial level, most of the reptiles are wild caught, maybe we should compare them to wild chicken or game bird, instead of store bought chicken, also it would differ wildly depending on type of dinosaur, it was a very diverse group

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

I don't know, I had gator a couple of times ... I wouldn't say it's better than chicken.

Who are these people and what reptiles are they eating?

Probably like crocodiles, which is already a delicacy in some places. In fact, crocodiles are already dinosaurs, the only ones who were too lazy to evolve into anything.

[-] [email protected] 20 points 1 month ago

crocodiles are already dinosaurs

Technically, chickens are dinosaurs. Crocodiles are not, though they are as old as the non-avian dinosaurs with little in the way of evolutionary change.

Here is an alternative Piped link(s):

are already dinosaurs

Why evolve more when they've already figured it all out?

Crocodiles are not dinosaurs, they are reptiles.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

Both are reptiles. But the crocs and dinos are different lineages.

I'm thinking ostrich meat is probably closest.

I assume like an alligator or crocodile. Probably depends if it’s a carnivore or herbivore too

[-] unreasonabro 4 points 1 month ago

I don't know, it's hard to get

[-] Got_Bent 4 points 1 month ago

Based on illustrated stories I was fed as a child, I would now like to know if the early Christians ate the dinosaurs after they were finished riding them.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Let's make a time machine and find out.

[-] bi_tux 3 points 1 month ago

it would depend on the kind of dinosaur, the ones with feathers would probably taste like low-fat/high-muscle turkey meat, while the water dinosaurs probably just tasted like red fish meat. I can't really tell what the lizard likes would've tasted, my best guess is somewhere between gator and komodo dragon.
