Bill: I’ve tucked into bat and dog

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

FUN­NY­MAN Bill Bai­ley has ad­mit­ted eat­ing DOG and BAT...and be­ing booted from a restau­rant for set­ting table­cloths on fire.

The 49-year-old reg­u­lar said: “I’ve eaten fruit bat. The wings are just mem­brane flap­ping.

“I’ve also eaten dog. It was served to me as an act of gen­eros­ity by peo­ple who had very lit­tle so I’d have felt un­grate­ful if I’d re­fused.”

The star said in an in­ter­view: “I once re­fused whale in Ja­pan. It was at a feast at the home of a fa­mous sushi chef, and I caused huge em­bar­rass­ment.”

He went on: “One night, af­ter a gig, I knocked over a flam­ing sam­buca which set alight the whole table­cloth, then the table­cloth next to it, and so on. I came close to torch­ing the en­tire place.”
