It's a human-eat-prairiedog world out there.

 Naturally—because this is Santa Fe and this is what we do, dammit—prairie dogs are again inciting uproar. On one side, there are those who wish to feed and perhaps snuggle the critters (a rodent by any other name...). Others wish to move them to relocation/fat camps where there's nary a McDonald's in sight. Fortunately for everyone involved, another solution has come into the mix: Eat them.


Matt Lynch sends us this photo from the Corn Crib restaurant in Shelby, Iowa (population 696 and dropping!), where folks know that the only sensible thing to do with methed-out prairie dogs is eat them, presumably with corn on the cob and a palate accustomed to such fineries as dandelion hooch. This way, people can both feed (read: fatten up) the prairie dogs and avoid expensive relocation costs. Win-win situation—unless you dropped $15.99 on this shirt.
