This should probably be in chaff, but I like posting it here . . . .

Lol...years ago a friend of mine was driving school buses in rural Austin, Tx. She came upon a one car accident of a huge buck that had taken out the engine of a small car. The driver, a woman, and her young baby were OK - just in shell shock and covered in glass. She was radioing in for help when two guys in separate pickups came by. Once it was assessed she was going to live and somehow had no interest in the twitching deer a fight broke out between the 2 guys on who had been there first - and who was going to take home dinner that night.

I still laugh over that one. She had to call dispatch for a state cop to break it up!!

Grad students supervising my senior thesis fed their families partially with roadkill (a "smorgasbord" of open highway around one of the large US 'prairie' universities only heard about during American football season); if one really needs calories, my advice is:

(a) green chile cheese enchiladas (basically stacks of cheese slice layered with corn tortillas with a sauce baked on top of it all) or a..

(b) chili rellano burrito (aka "Mexican fat bomb" - deep fried green chili with the inside de-seeded and replaced by gooey cheese) - one of those is a day's worth of calories, .... at least.

ADD: Guess calling them vegetarian fare is kind of pushing it.
