I have some friend who were REALLY dirt poor as graduate students
way back, to the point that one day for a special treat they 
"borrowed" a lab rabbit and cooked it.  After throwing up, they 
said that it had tasted just like the foul food that the lab used
to feed the animals.  I never had the guts to ask how they knew what
lab animal chow tasted like.
