Got this off WhatsApp :

*THE ECONOMY IS SO BAD THAT* .... My neighbor got a pre-declined credit card in the mail. CEO's are now playing miniature golf. Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen. I saw a Mormon with only one wife. McDonald's is selling the 1/4 ouncer. Angelina Jolie adopted a child from America. Parents in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and learned their children's names. A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico. A picture is now only worth 200 words. When Bill and Hillary travel together, they now have to share a room. The Treasure Island casino in Las Vegas is now managed by Somali pirates. And, finally... I was so depressed last night thinking about the coronavirus, economy, wars, jobs, my savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc., I called the Suicide Hotline. I got a call center in Afghanistan, and when I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited, and asked if I could drive a truck.

So, is a "fruit" bat more hygienic than a regular bat? Mmm...
When I was an expat in Singapore, several of my Singaporean and Malaysian friends told me that as a kid, they would follow their father or uncle to hunt for fruit bat (called Flying Fox locally) in the plantations. Their mothers or aunts would either deep fry them or grill them over open fire. They said that fruit bats taste real good because they eat fruits, unlike ordinary bats that eat insects.

I ate fruit bat once in a wild game restaurant in Johor Baru (in Malaysia just across the border from Singapore) around the year 2000. Did not find it very tasty. But it did not taste bad either.

Eating fruit bats is quite common in SE Asia, including Singapore (in the old days), Malaysia, and Indonesia.
