The totally weird stuff folks around the world eat

#1
It’s quite unimaginable, and scary, what folks are prepared to scoff, really:

As a committed vegan, I’d certainly agree with piccie 13 – durian fruit – because it’s absolutely delicious. Don’t be put off by the smell, which is worse, much worse, than MDN’s skiddies after a six-week scheme.

Piccie 17 is interesting in that the intense pigment used by artists and called “Indian Yellow” used to be made from the urine of Indian cattle fed with mango leaves. The problem was that this diet also produced jagged crystals in the cattles’ kidneys that led to a very painful death for the animals, in a country that considers cattle holy. So, after independence, the Indian farmers simply refused to feed mango leaves to their cows and there's been no more (genuine) “Indian Yellow" pigment since.

we had a man in Singapore who used to sell these door to door...my mum made us eat them in the garden and hosed us down before letting us back indoors! She detested the smell! I'm sure dad used to buy them on purpose! We called it poo-fruit (we WERE only toddlers)

Stinky tofu. Like gorgonzola with the gain turned up full.

One of the few foods that's ever made me physically sick without some form of poisoning being involved.

Most of that looks ok to eat. Cannot be any worse than the way meat is cooked to rubber pretty well everywhere within the UK. Seal meat and seal blubber is wonderful. :D

minge

sorry, mince, MINCE. Not minge. That was a typo.

As a vegitablist I find mince revolting.

Not minge. Mince.

A long time ago some German scouts from Bremen turned up at our place to do some camping and pony trekking.

One of them was called Minge.

Why do left wing ideology and eating disorders always go hand in hand?
It's not an eating disorder. I just don't think that yoomanz are omnivores, that's all.

Ever had the taste treat and cultural icon of my rural north Georgia (the US one) called "boiled peanuts?" Or possum stew?

Our teeth and digestive systems disagree with you.
My take is that while we (some consider US Marines human) may have the equipment (teeth etc.) to eat meat, it does not mean we have to. I have been a vegetarian for many years and get along quite nicely.

Yeah, but where's the fun in killing a carrot!
