What Inedible Materials, Quail & Frozen Dessert Have in Common in NC

What Inedible Materials, Quail & Frozen Dessert Have in Common in NC
While researching a licensee, I happened to run across a list of occupations and activities that must be licensed or permitted by The North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services. Much of the list did not surprise me, but a few unusual activities requiring regulation caught my eye:
  •  Chick Dealer (I get Egg Dealer.)
  •  Permit to Transport Inedible Materials (Yuck.)
  •  Quail (This has to do with dressed carcasses. I’m giving up quail. Wait, I’ve never eaten quail.)
  • No Quail Casserole for me, thanks.
  •  Retail and Wholesale Frozen Dessert (Now I can sleep at night.)

This is one of the nicest things about being a paralegal. You never stop learning new stuff ;P

  1. My great uncle was a hunter, and every year for some years running as a kid, we'd have wild game birds at Thanksgiving. Quail, Phesant and Duck were pretty common. Nothing says Thanksgiving quite like the "ping" of shotgun pellets hitting the plate as you pull them out of your meat.
