How to prepare and eat a Ortolan Bunting

How to prepare and eat a Ortolan Bunting

Catch it alive.
Poke its eyes out.
Force feed it.
Drown it in Cognac.
Pluck the feathers.
Roast it whole.
Bite its head off.
And eat it whole bones and all under a blanket.

The under the blanket part is supposed to be to hide the act from god and to preserve the aroma of the bird but I think the real reason is so you don't see the guts and innards and vomit on yourself.

I am close to building a pool made out of Cognac and having all of my food drown in it.

A pool of Cognac sounds sexy.

I'm close to building a pool of cognac and drowning all the men I know in it. You being the exception of course.
