"my mum used to make The Best rabbit pie!"
I can't eat rabbit - a hang-up from the time a friend's mother fed me a rabbit pie which had been badly prepared and full of broken bones
If I get a small bone in my mouth I'm ill for hours after
I'm sure there must be a named phobia for that
Philosophically I am a vegetarian - horrified by the idea of killing living creatures (except Everton supporters), but as most Northern English vegitarians would have starved to death before they reach the age of five, I've never been ably to practice my philosophy.
One of our first Traveller singers gave us songs about Rabbit-skin selling - his uncle was a practitioner in rural Wexford in the early twentieth century
