Oh yeah. It's so normal in China for people to eat rats. Right. And you're from China and you're name is Long Duck Dong. So you know everything about the most populous country on Earth. Great. In Japan rat is only eaten as sashimi at high class restaurants. The kanji for rat, 鼠 also doubles meaning as "oily chopsticks". Thus, when eating rat sashimi, it is customary to dip the meat in sesame oil and soy sauce. The dirtier the rat, the more daring it's considered to eat. The salaryman who can eat a lot of dirty rat is considered manly, much in the same way teenage Australian boys who can drink a lot of Fosters are in Australia.
