    Well, I do not live in Gator country so I shall pass on ever eating it. When I was in Florida and visited a Gator exhibit, it did not make me think of eating those ugly things. I visited where dudes get on the backs of Alligators to hold them down and following that was on an Air boat to see them in the Swamp.

    That was a big no-no in Florida not that long ago, as gators were considered endangered.
    Now it's not uncommon to wake up to a 10 footer in your swimming pool, they're so ubiquitous.

    gator tastes like a big hunk of gristle or tough fat. kinda like a chicken gizzard .. maybe a little fishy. disgusting really.
    You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something .. sometime in your life.

    I posted after my question that I found out what Hush Puppies are. I have had a lot of Corn Bread in my 83 years but never fried corn bread chunks in I suppose lard. Lard has made a come back I read and it is now found to be nutritious.

    I remember once an ex's of mine's brother who was an engineer was doing observational dive assessments on a hydro dam in Missouri or somewhere. He said that as they were inspecting the inlet area they encountered catfish that just hovered in the caged area and feasted on a never ending stream of food the current brought them.
    You wouldn't like them though. He said they were 12 feet long! Scariest thing he'd ever seen, he said.
