Offered and not eaten it you mean? Guinea pig probably.

Icelandic fermented shark

Sorry Icelanders, I know it's a delicacy

Tastes quite good actually - once you get past the smell

pig's brains.

it was in serbia, when i was about 5. during summertime, we (or the kids, anyway) would go to this village house my grandparents owned (loads of fun, i remember). anyway, i think it was near the end of the summer...because they were going to have a barbeque. but nothing like the ones we have in canada, where you get some meat from a store, and whip open the barbie in the had to kill the pig first. (all i remember from this, was a pig running around the yard, and about 5 men chasing after it for like half an hour. i thought it funny for a bit, until i remembered its' fate :S) anyway, after the unfortunate death of the pig (which i didn't see, thank goodness), and all that prep and such, they finally started the barbeque. and then my grandma came after me to give me food. being me, i didn't like to eat at all, so they pretty much always made me - plus, it has to be some kind of serbian gene or something, they were always pushy about making me eat more (no matter if i ate already, or am full, or about to explode). that said, she comes to me, with a plate of pig's brains..."because they'll make me smarter". after lots of genetic convincing, i managed to get some actual meat and toddle off. i guess i was happy with my iq the way it was.
