Blog: A kangaroo by any other name…

Catherine Sleep | 23 November 2005

…. Is still a kangaroo. Nevertheless, those vulnerable Aussies are seeking a new name for kangaroo meat, because it offends their sensitivities to think of chowing down on those wiry little jumpers. Guess it’s no different than referring to cow meat as beef, or sheep meat as lamb.

So, what have they come up with? Suggestions include Kanga and Skippy – no points for originality there, then. Think you can do better? Click the link below and wow the judges. But beware, competition closes on the 31st November. Which is interesting, as traditionally November only has 30 days. Oh well, it's obviously a Southern Hemisphere thing.

Name that kangaroo (meat)!
