New reptile species discovered on buffet

(Although, technically, this IS about food...) :)

Short summary: Vietnamese biologist notices oddity about grilled lizard found on local buffets; notifies friend, who jets out to help examine; rural diner owner promises to hold some aside for examination, then gets drunk and cooks them all for buddies. Day is saved by local kids who rustle up samples.

Mind you, substitute any state in the U.S. Deep South for Vietnam, you could have same story.
