    Tasted Like Pond Scum

    I had Alligator at a state fair in Washington State. They advertised it as "Delicious! Tastes Just Like Chicken!". Well, even after having several pre-alligator alcoholic beverages it tasted like crap! After that no matter how much I drank I couldn't wash the taste...

    I Liked It
