I remember at the beginning of the Bush clusterfuck in Iraq, I wanted to set up some way to send donated care packages to soldiers in Iraq. I did some research. The U.S. Post Office warned not to send that happy snack "Pork Rinds" to people in Afghanistan or Iraq.

Not being a big consumer of fast food, I wondered why the fuck anyone would want to eat the so-called "rind" of any animal. Then, of course, I pondered if Islamic scholars had made a decision on the permissibility of eating the rinds of the animals they may have never seen at the time ...

I've eaten me some good ostrich and I've never been to Australia.
