Let’s be fair. Captain Video just doesn’t like raisins, and from that perspective it’s a fun conceit to compare them to something that everyone finds disgusting. I take his comparison of raisins to rat turds as metaphor, not literalism. The extremely vague similarity gives rise to a bit of toilet poetry.

We're getting a little off topic with the rat turds.  Shouldn't we be using our time more constructively to figure out which other kind of animal turd raisins look like?  Ever seen a rabbit turd?

I could very well be mistaken, but I think that rabbit turds look much more like raisins than rat turds do. There was a very old joke about raisins and rabbit turds with someone giving someone else “raisins” and which ended with the punch line “My rabbit died.” But it’s much more satisfying to compare the food that you hate with the poop of a disgusting rat than with the poop of a cute little bunny.
