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
