The Problem With Eating Roadkill at a Chinese Restaurant, Is That You’re Just Hungry For More Half an Hour Later

Before I divulge into the heart of the matter here, the real argument to be made is if you are stupid enough to visit a Chinese take-out restaurant in Kentucky, you can't be surprised when they wheel a dead deer in a trashcan around the back to flay its meat and serve it to its unsuspecting customers. There's never been a great migration of Chinese immigrants to Kentucky. The paragon of schezuan cooking is not going to be found in Williamsburg, KY at the Red Flower Chinese Restaurant. So deal with your roadkill.

That being said, this is probably the filthiest thing I've ever heard in my entire life. A witness saw employees of Red Flower bringing a trashcan with the limbs of what appeared to be a deer into the back of the restaurant and taht 'there was even a blood trail' leading from the garbage can back into the restaurant like something out of a Family Guy cutaway.

The only thing worse than being a diner at the restaurant is to be related to the owner, as his excuse was that he didn't intend to serve the roadkill venison to his customers, but he planned to use it to feed his family. Now, I understand maybe inventory was running low, but if you own a restaurant, can't you dip into the stockroom for some lunch meat first before scraping the run over corpse of a decaying animal off the road with a shovel and serving it to your kids as part of a balanced meal?

Whether or not the deer was really going to be served to the customers, or whether roadkill had been served to them in the past remains a mystery. But one thing is for sure, next time I'm in Kentucky, I'll send out for pizza.
