Would You Eat A Porg?

The Last Jedi's second trailer dropped yesterday, and after watching an incredibly crappy game of NFL, the internet was thrilled.

And then it got hungry. For Porgs.

For some reason, a reason I cannot fathom, people on social media got super excited. About eating one of the new characters in Star Wars.

I shit you not.

Rae from Gizmodo has collated more madness, if you want to go down that rabbit hole.

People Really Want To Eat The Porg

Seeing it for the first time, did the Star Wars. The Last Jedi trailer leave you with a feeling of suspense, joy, sadness, euphoria?

Question is: would you eat the Porg? Apparently Chewbacca does, although I don't know if there's something in Star Wars canon somewhere that says that's a thing.

But what if a Porg fillet ended up on your plate? Yay or nay?


    I'm sure it just tastes like chicken.
    So yes.

    Just looks like there's a white mark on the window near his mouth to me.

    Lambs, deer, ducks, chicken, puppies. I'm afraid cute often equals delicious. Porg looks like a half poultry, half fish kind of thing, so is probably reasonably tasty.

    It looks like it's mostly penguin. A quick internet search suggests penguin meat is not great - "If it’s possible to imagine a piece of beef, odiferous cod fish, and a canvas-backed duck roasted together in a pot, with blood and cod-liver oil for sauce, the illustration would be complete".

    I'd give it a go, but I wouldn't expect it to be a particularly appealing culinary experience.

      Penguin isn't bad, we used to cook up Yellow Eye back in NZ.

      It was like a mix between Kiwi Bird and Wood Pidgeon.

      We miss ya Billy!!

    I hope it does get eaten cause I hate everything about it.

    Porg - the other*, other**, other***, other**** white meat!

    *** baby

    If Porg meat were the secret ingredient on Iron Chef, I'm sure Bobby Flay would probably serve it with roasted red peppers and a dash of cumin and a braised polenta. It wouldn't be an easy thing to do, but if you slow roast the little guy, I'm sure that Porg meat would just fall right off the bone.

    Roast porg with mashed potatoes and gravy... sounds like a winner to me
