Quoting FionaNZ

Quoting Isadora

though Kraft have been pushing it and their jam + cheese labels recently in a series of adverts starring Billy Connolly and Pamela Stevenson (Why Billy - a Scot - is pushing vegemite is beyond me, as most non-antipodeans can't stand any of the yeast extracts...)

Billy is married to Pamela who is of course a KIWI...

I'm a Vegemite fan the rest of my family are Marmite fan's

Isa, what about the pigs and bulls testicle are breaded and deep-fried into golden perfection? That's in Ohio, in a small town called Tiro where they held the anuual Tiro Testicle Festival. Hmmmm...

can i just boast about the grossest food in the discovery channel countdown? Its an aborted duck. duck embryo. folks back home steam it, and its sold on the streets, you crack it open put some salt and inside is this semi developed chick, that you can eat whole, and just spit out the beak, bones and such. few foreigners can stomach it, but its a popular snack in the Philippines. I personally dont eat it but losta my friends do.

Also theres dinuguan, which literally translates to "bloodied". its pork blood stew with more congealed pork blood, meat and innards in it. its actually pretty good once you get over the thought that its all blood. and believe it or not, it doesnt leave a bloody taste in your mouth (pun intended).

BALUT! Try it Sugar. It's really good.. Have you tasted field rats too? Madam it tastes better than chicken. :) ;)

Speaking of festivals ... In Madison, VA they hold the annual Nuts and Guts festical. All the deep-fried pig testicles and miscellany that you can eat. All for a fair price. Yeck!

I have had rattlesnake and squirrel.

Are you that guy who used to live next door to us? Thought I recognized you! Seriously, he'd go out rattlesnake hunting and skin them all in the back yard!

Toasted ravioli, anyone? Some schmuck must have dropped a piece of ravioli in a frying pan, and thought it was a stroke of genious. Big thing in St. Louis. Heh heh--as is the Busch beer! hmmm...starting to sound like an Isa post

In Kansas, farmers take raw wheat, rub off the chaff, and chew the kernels like gum. If you roast the kernels with a bit of salt, they're actually really yummy. Also big on local sunflower seeds.

The best steak (beef) I've had anywhere is definitely Dodge City, Kansas. They look at you really funny out there if you say you're a vegetarian. Not a word in their vocabulary out in beef country.

Went to a great restaurant two weeks ago here in Perth, Western Australia.
I had the stockman's special.
Cutlet of kangaroo, cutlet of camel, cutlet of venison and a crocodile kebab.
Throw in the accompanying vegies and plumb and garlic sauces and it was SUPERB!!!!
Back in 1981? I had skewered sparrow in Japan. The whole bird was basically barbecued whole, and you eat it from beak to toe.
Interesting experience!!!

I am in India at the Pushkar camel festival and the other day we watched this woman collecting camel turds, they burn them to cook chapattis over.

Well we didn't know this and tried to ask the woman, who didn't speak english, what she was rolling shit into balls for. She said chapattis and mimed eating, so my friend was convinced that they put camel turds in chapattis. Then he really wanted to try them and was looking for somewhere to buy camel pooh with chapatti! sick man.
