Too funny! My dad actually did eat a rattlesnake once. Someone ran over it, so he brought the snake home and fried it. My mom freaked! Thanks for bringing back that great childhood memory!

I've eaten rattlesnake once. Tastes like chicken. I'd rather eat chicken, after reading step 1...made my eyes drift downward to the hot bods instead. Think they'd find me a rattlesnake and cook it for me??? HA!

Sounds yummy, but no thanks. Maybe if one of your friends in the photo cooked it for me I wouldn't be thinking about what I was eating.

My hubby ate rattle snack once, too, and he also said it tastes like chicken. When I was seventeen and working in a summer resort, we found a dead rattle snake and skinned it - unfortunately for us the lady in charge was furious at us because we skinned it in the laundry room and blood went eveywhere. After covering the skin with salt, we put it on the roof in the sun and later I sewed it on my boyfriend's cowboy hat. It was AWESOME if I can say so myself. One of the wrangler ate the the rattler...

Thanks for stopping by.
