MARMOTS ARE THE CRONUT BURGERS OF KYRGYZSTAN

'EAT ME AND DIE'  
Thank God I wasn't born in Kyrgyzstan, because I don't care how delicious this fucker tastes, I'd rather starve than eat it.
Urgent note to self: Cancel that dream trip to Kyrgyzstan, stat. Because four people have been hospitalized, 160 people have been quarantined and one 15-year-old boy has died of bubonic plague (and I’m not even sure what that is but it’s got the word ‘plague’ in it so I know it’s bad) after eating barbecued marmot. In other words, they eat marmots in Kyrgyzstan. Have you seen marmots? We’re basically talking giant mutant ground squirrel, here. Jesus Christ. I think I'd rather risk a meal at the Ex. 

Editor’s note: Bubonic plague still exists? 
My note: It does in Kyrgyzstan. Where people eat marmots.
