    I think you're exactly right about the origins of nattou; surely somebody had some beans in their knapsack a bit too long and couldn't bear to toss 'em.

    Several years ago I ate a KFC Zinger only, then it was a kind of wrap thing using a soft taco shell type casing.....last one I ate made me so sick I couldn`t eat meat for about 5 years after...I`m OK with meat now though I have not gone back to KFC since which is about 12 years ago now. So....they have pies called Zingers?... somehow, I just don`t think I`m going to test drive one.

    Had the beef tongue tacos (lengua), not too bad. Pigs ears are ok in pozole (mexican hominy soup). Andouille sausage? Really? I love it!

    Buche (fried stomach) is about the worst part of the pig I've personally had. My wife loves it, it's her favorite part of carnitas while I try and scoop out only the rib and shoulder meat. :)

    Someone mentioned wasp or hornet larvae. My wife learned that there was a wasp nest in our out building and being the good, understanding husband that I am, I decided to wait on destroying the nest until she could harvest the larvae she wanted. Well, I forgot about the nest and opened the building one day to cut the grass.... Got nailed twice in the back by some very angry wasps. :mad:

    When I was in the service, I ordered a pizza in Istanbul. Halfway through the second slice, I tasted medicine in my mouth. I spit it out and found out that the cook had left a used band-aid under the cheese. :eek:

    I also saw a vendor holding a fresh killed rat by the tail, hawking it at a crossroads in Zambia. I wasn't in the mood for rat though.

    I thought Cajuns ate some weird s--t! Compared to some of the stuff I've read, the stuff we eat is perfectly normal by comparison. :D

    There is a restaurant near Johannesburg called Carnivores where they serve indigenous meats. I have had giraffe, zebra, crocodile and most of the antelope types like Kudu, impala, etc. as well as the Mopani worms and others. I found the zebra and croc quite tasty.

    yeah they can do some pretty horrible things to pizza in Japan.....but I bet most Italians think the same thing about North American pizza.

    Cod Tongues....

    Thought they would be terrible but they taste amazing. Only problem is it takes 122 of them to make a Sandwich.

    Heck yeah, they do.
    • Curry sauce
    • Boiled eggs
    • German potato salad
    etc.

    And most of 'em come with mayonnaise squirted all over the top--before they bake it.

    You wanna draw a blank stare from a Japanese person? Try telling them that it's okay to put pineapple on a pizza, but it's not okay to put fruit cocktail on a pizza....

    speaking of gross and dangerous....just saw a report that fishermen plied their trade off Fukushima for the first time since the event that damaged the reactors there, they say they wanna see how their catch will be received by the population....I can tell youse this, I will NOT be buying any, in fact I haven`t eaten fish since the March 2011 event because I don`t trust the info coming out, or should I say the lack of info...and all the food scandals that occurred in Japan over the past decade. Anyways....theres no way to tell if the vegetables and fruit up here haven`t been affected by fallout or not and I`ve been eating those. Guess time will tell.
