Remember this picture? Now, there’s been a new addition to the menu.

BEIJING (Reuters) – Live rats are being trucked from central China, suffering a plague of a reported 2 billion rodents displaced by a flooded lake, to the south to end up in restaurant dishes, Chinese media reported.
Rats had been doing a roaring trade thanks to strong supply over the last two weeks, the China News Service quoted vendors as saying.
“Recently there have been a lot of rats… Guangzhou people are rich and like to eat exotic things, so business is very good,” it quoted a vendor as saying, referring to the capital of Guangdong province, where people are reputed to eat anything that moves.

God, I hope this isn’t the place where the “rat banquets” are taking place….
And remember, Guangdong province is a “rich” part of China
