Musings about Japan and life as a human, a cosplayer, a minority, a music lover, an English teacher.

“I want to eat kangaroos.”

Yesterday, my 6th graders started working on speeches about the country they want to visit and why.

Me (to a girl): How’s it going?
Girl: I want to go to Australia. What do they have?
Me: Hm, well they have koalas, and kangaroos…
Girl: I already wrote about that…hey, can you eat koalas in Australia?
Me: O_O Uh…I don’t think so…
Girl: How about kangaroos?
Me: …hm, actually, they MIGHT eat kangaroos there…I’m not sure.
Girl: Okay then. *writes* “I want to eat kangaroos.”
Me: …okay, sounds good…

    Yep, we do eat kangaroo’s, tastes like beef but if it’s not cooked well will be really tough.

      Thanks for the info! I thought I remembered hearing once that kangaroos are eaten in Australia, but I wasn’t sure. I think this girl just wanted to be humorous, which is why she suggested koalas first. I’ll let her know that her idea isn’t so outlandish!
