Daily News reported that netizens were commenting in large numbers after a post by someone whose friend found a suspicious item in a school cafeteria lunch. 

 

The diner had nearly finished their meal when they came across what most people thought was probably a baby mouse or rat. 

 

Some netizens joked it looked a bit like a sausage and could easily have been eaten.

 

The media said it was the latest find in food to make anyone bring up their dinner.

Duck.

I once saw the half&half baby chicken & egg variety eaten by people right next to me. My appetite was gone... I'm sure there is also half duck & egg. Is baby mouse perhaps a delicacy in parts of the Northeast? I wouldn't bet against it.

Common delicacy in the Philippines called Balut. They wander around the streets selling them to the shout of ' Balut ' ......which is short and to the point.

Forget the mouse for a minute, can anyone recognise what Thai dish the meal is supposed to be. To my eyes it look like chopped fried cockroaches, with crab shell, and ant eggs.

Something tells me the Children's meal allowance for the school is being diverted to other things........:whistling:

The kids are supposed to pay only 20 baht or so for their school lunch. With rising food costs, I can imagine that sellers cut costs and just sell "dirt" (or the lowest quality of food they can get) to the them...

The mouse lends little to the dish, but the droppings and the urine, they are full of delicious umami!

Still, the seller may have had a split second, when she pondered to charge an extra 10 baht for "some pork"...

What's the big deal?

 

Pork intestines and congealed pork blood "cubes", grilled lizards, insects in any form and description, steamed "maengdar", skewered tarantulas, morning glory straight from the cesspool, jellyfish and sea cucumbers, half raw cockles, duck fetuses in their eggshells, "dancing" shrimps, ant eggs, snake blood, fermented fish, fermented rice paddy crabs, dried squid and octopus, dog and cat meat in the upper northeast. And yes, even grilled or fried baby mice and rats are served in quite a few Thai regions.

Comes to show you that even rodents that eats everything couldn't stomach that pile of garbage they call food there...

I thought rat, or rodent,  is a Thai staple in their diet.  I see you tube videos, and have seen them in person prepare and eat rat.  They could care less if its a vector animal.  They could care less that COVID is said to come from eating bats, and a rat is the same as a bat without wings.

I have no idea how Thai food got its reputation. A lot of it is deep fried, and much of it is based on Chinese or Indian cuisine. One time in a restaurant the food I was given was so filled with chilies that it completely killed the taste of anything on the plate.

Is that the food kids get in school to eat??  Thai food is good food, but this is......... not worth eating it...Give decent food made by a decent cook . It is important for kids to have a good meal maybe it is the only good meal they can have as some kids are very poor...

Kids (parents) have to pay for there children's lunches.  It isn't free. 

 

Usually the money is squandered and the kids get old rice and rotten vegetables. 

 

.....Or in this case baby mouse parts.
