Yep, S.C. born.I’m reasonably sure that I’m not the only poster from the southern US who has eaten brains and eggs for breakfast.
My grandmother grew up on a sustenance farm - you don’t waste one bit of that pig.

Similar with chickens. Mama would have me catch one by flashlight grabbing it by the feet from the roost after it got dark (because they couldn’t see well then!) and put it in a wire bottom big cage with water and cracked corn overnight, and have me chop its head with a hatchet on the hickory tree stump next day. After it ran and stumbled headless for a few minutes, dip in scalding hot water to ease plucking its feathers, and she would finish butchering it. She would keep and usually stew most of its parts. I loved chicken brains, it’s partially developed egg yolks (if a laying hen), and the feet.
Squirrel brain is good too.
And once I killed a coon and we stewed, then deboned and baked it.
I am not saying i wouldn't try that, but they could have at least removed the hairs the duck tongues.
