It's a haunting search for a deadbeat dad through the Missouri Ozarks. Not far from St. Louis, really. Squirrel burger topped with cream gravy, garnished with a toasted rav.

A chicken slider with the bird's feathers still embedded in the meat, coated in ketchup. Lots and lots of bloody red ketchup. It's perfect.
