    Disgusting things you eat :)

    I am eating a sandwhich with tongue on it, somehow it is rather rubbery.. Anyone else eats tongue?

    How about horse, does anyone eat the meat of horse? I think it taste rather good on a sandwhich, I never had a horse steak though..

    So any unusual things you eat?

    there is a variety of salami in our country which is supposedly made from horse meat. Personally I like it but I can't really tell if it's from horse or not.

    While it is vaguely interesting to note that you like tongue (yes, a bad joke), I couldn't possibly eat that. YUCK!

    About the most disguting thing I eat is mass-produced processed food.

    Re: Monique

    Actually, yes that is disgusting

    In The Netherlands we have a joke when someone is eating such food: "What is the difference between you and that sausage?" "The sausage contains more brains than you do"

    No doubt, it's scrapple.

    "But what parts of the hog go into the creation of scrapple? After the ham, bacon, chops and other cuts of meat are taken from the butchered pig - what remains are fixings for scrapple - including the meat scraped off the head. Scrapple may contain pork skin, pork heart, pork liver, pork tongue - even pork brains. Those faint of palate needn't venture any further.
    "

    That's like Australian meat pies. I think the law demands only about 25% normal meat now. The rest is guts, lungs, hooves, snouts, eyeballs, and all the other spare parts from the abatoir floor.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to stuff sausages in my ears...

    You should read "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair. There is a nice passage in there about sausage making. Evidently, it was very expensive to turn the machinery off and on. If a worker fell into the works it was just a free source of meat for the packing company.

    Mushroom is not a fungus, it is the reproductive organ of a fungus. I like some blue cheeses though

    what's wrong with the green one?
    i like almost any variety of cheese that exists....

    I've never felt the desire to eat any type of animal organ. I don't know why I dislike the idea, but I do. You are all demented and sick.

    I guess the worst thing I eat is processed meat patties(beef or chicken) and bologna.

    I eat chicken's periods.

    Ya know, Monique. You were talking in another thread about something you were cooking up (maybe you mentioned a couple of dishes) and I was thinking "Wow. That sounds good. She sounds like a pretty good cook." Then, when we started talking about Ivan and me taking a trip to Europe, I thought "Cool. Maybe if we can get together with Monique, we can talk her into cooking up something yummy for us."

    Never mind.

    SPAM has to be the hienous thing on the planet. I'd love to try haggus. Any scotts around ? I've eaten alligator(tastes like chicken-no joke). snake, snail,octopus, and the grossest has to be oysters rockafeller(raw-slides down your throat with all the consistency of dried mucous membrane).

    Actually, I'm very willing to try almost anything - just don't tell me exactly what it is until I've eaten it. I'm OK knowing AFTER the fact, but not before. I draw the line with monkey brains, tho. I don't do monkey brains.
