Duck. It is the best animal ever invented, both because it is adorable and because it is tasty. In fact, it may be tastier *because* it is so adorable when walking around and quacking.

I also call vension 'bambi'. Am I strange?

I'm an opportunistic carnivore-I'll eat damn near anything! Bison, cow, pig, deer, birds, fishes, crustacea-there's too much good stuff to choose a favorite.

I try and be vegetarian for a while every now and then, but steak.

I kind of have a hard time feeling bad for cows, and probably eat beef most often. Although there's times I forget the difference between beef and pork. In tamales for example.

Salmon and tuna (sashimi) are really good, but there's that destroying the ocean thing I hear about every now and then.

Eel. Smoked eel is the best meat I've ever had. It tastes fantastic and the texture is like melting choclate.

YAHH LAMB

I also like venison and rabbit and duck. Does this make me a terrible person?

If I had to limit my meat consumption to only two kinds of meat, I'd pick beef and pork. You can't go wrong with beef and it's classic meaty flavor, and there's no way in hell I'd give up bacon. Duck is delicious, but it's a bit too flavorful for me--I find it best on special occasions so I don't binge on it and feel like crap the next day.

Fish is a runner up because Filipino cuisine uses it interchangeably with meat, but I wouldn't miss it as much as beef or pork, so yeah. I would definitely miss salmon and striped bass, though. My brother once brought home a ten-pound bass, and sweet lord it was awesome. Baked striped bass in the oven with tomatoes and lemon = HEAVEN.

In my opinion, the Fried Chicken Strip is the most delicious animal to walk the earth.

(Whoever had the link to the Sea Kitten Recipes, I was so confused because I didn't realize that it wasn't from the xkcd forum. I thought Belial had gone crazy again. Luckily, I figured it out before major hysteria ensued.)

Cows are delectable. Burgers and steak, yummy. But bacon comes in a close second.
I don't really like seafood, and I couldn't say if I like game; I have never tried it.

Thanks to the pig we have bacon, pulled pork, SPAM, ham, 1/3 of the hot dog and pepperoni, and BBQ pork kebabs. :P

I don't eat pork or beef, not really by principle but by preference. If I am served it at someone's house then I will eat it and sometimes it is good, but when I feed myself... I never buy either.

I don't like fishy fish, but the rest are good. I love chicken!

Lamb is first, wild pig would be a close second. But I wouldn't turn away from moose, deer, bear, almost anything with gills, some shellfish, and most stuff with feathers.

Looks like I fall into the "cute" category...

Lamb is my favorite (and as my parents would tell you at any given opportunity, has been my favorite ever since I was a toddler). It applies itself particularly well to Japanese-style curry (the kind that's more like a stew and not very spicy).

I also like duck, which gets amazingly crispy skin with a particularly gorgeous color when cooked a certain way.

And then there's the deer jerky my uncles send along every hunting season. It's tastier and healthier than most store-bought beef jerky.
