To The Market With Uncle Ike

Happy Chinese New Year, Uncle Ike!!!

I heard that you fell down and went boom on your bottom this winter.  What a bummer!  Sorry for the pun.  I couldn't resist.

As you know, I'm living in Taiwan.  I thought I'd take you to the market with me to do a little food shopping.  

This has got to be one heck of a humbling way to go.  "Hey Duck, you better shut up or I'll cut you in half and put your head where your heart is and stick your neck up your ass!"  I guess he made one last wise quack.  HA HA HA HA HA!  I really quack myself up!   

This is your brain.  This is your brain in a deep fat fryer.

Eel!  Eel!  Get your eel here!
FYI, the other bucket is full of frogs with a net over them so they won't jump out.

There's nothin' like fresh fish.

Shrimp, squid, octopus... you want it, we got it!

The lady behind me is mourning the loss of her pet chicken.  It was time to kill "Clucky."

There's no discriminating when it comes to slaughtering.

Or would you rather be hung this way?

They even have all the parts of the pig available.  How would you like to have your skin folded neatly and stacked?

If the whole leg is too much for you help yourself to just the feet.

Pig ears aren't just for the dog anymore.  
They're deeeeee-lishhhhhhh-iiiiiiiii-ousssssss!

Squid? Whole fish?  Carp steaks?  Frogs?

I hope you enjoyed your trip to the market.  Bet you can't wait to come visit Asia.  
I hope you are back on your feet soon!
