Whale Burgers to Sell Big?

Don’t know how I feel about this one. It just seems such a shame to eat whales, but maybe that’s my Western
sensibilities talking. But as this article points
out
, whale burgers are in high demand. A Japanese fast food chain estimates that demand will be so high that it
will sell 200 whale burgers a day. The chain, Lucky Pierrot (that doesn’t sound very Japanese?), runs 10 shops in the
northern island of Hokkaido, and will use the mean minke whales caught under Japan’s controversial research whaling
program. The burgers are said to taste a lot like beef. No word on whether the burger will be called the McMoby.
