You know who knows a heck of a lot about farming? Michelle Obama.

And you know what every good farmer knows? Screw sun, soil, water, fertilizer and insecticide...all you really need to do to ensure a bountiful crop is bust a righteous move.

Don't believe me? Wouldja believe the "Christian Science Monitor"? (You have to. It's Good Friday and if you don't you'll go to Hell. Ah, y'all are probably all heathen pagans anyway.)

I don't have any venison sausage. I have some bear sausage though. If you dance for it, I'll let you try some. :p

Try cougar. Delicious. Tastes like pork chops.

Nothing better than killing and eating majestic animals.

Kangaroo is one to avoid, however. Very gamey. :\

Yeah, I've had cougar before and it does taste just like pork. Was eating it at work and really weirding my co-workers out. :D
