I don't care what PETA or anyone else has to say, lucky rabbit's feet are the best damn thing ever. On the same trip to china town, in the same store, there was a box full of brightly colored lucky rabbit foot key chains. I didn't get one because 1. I did feel bad for the rabbit ( but then I thought hey, i'm sure they ate its meat so why let the feet go to waste?) and 2. I am sure that thing was FULL of nasty germs, and boiling it would ruin the color and fur. If I could find a place that sells fake ones for less then five dollars each I would buy them, but I think that takes away from its appeal ( In case you where wondering I would not use it as a key chain, just a wonderful object to look at ). Still, I think I am going to go back and buy a bunch for my friends who are willing to sacrifice their morals and health in order to have a lucky rabbit's foot hangin out in their home.
