Chicken Taste Scale

No more awkward moments when somebody asks you what flavor your albatross is

What's panda taste like anyway? Refer to the chicken scale, chicken being the core center of what everything else tastes like, add whatever deviation points from center for that particular meat.

So rabbit would be "C+.02" (almost the same) emu "C+.15" close but different" Captain Crunch cereal "C+10" not at all like chicken.

I'm guessing panda's about a "C+3"

I'm pretty sure Darwin never made a chart of animals ranked by taste so there's an interesting project for somebody with a little free time that doesn't mind incurring the wrath of PETA. Maybe you could get funding from the other PETA: "People Eating Those Animals".

Ok, that humor well's about dried up.

       Thing is, industrial chicken is C+1 anyway.

       And shirley this idea is ripped off from annotation by the esteemed Dr. Remulac on another idea?

       That's probably my hated adversary, Doctorremulac 2. Damn that handsome devil.

       Methinks you are using a scalar quantity to describe a multidimensional vector. [link] Also what is the range? Are there negative values?

       //scalar quantity to describe a multidimensional vector//   

       I don't be knowin' 'bout all that fancy science stuff, I don't cotton much to book-learnin'. In fact, I think people who read are just showing off.   

       That being said, I was picturing a color spectrum type wheel where you could cross reference say, "camel mixed with breem" then where they intersect you'd see a picture of a, I don't know, what tastes like camel and breem? Lizard maybe?

       "(He) was able to find qualities he liked in all (animals) except the common mole, which he deemed disgusting."   

       LOL, who says history isn't funny? What was he doing with those moles anyway?
