Oddest, Grossest or Weirdest Thing U Eat

Ok all, given this is a cooking forum....
What is the Oddest, the Grossest or the Weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
My best is either escargot (idea used to gross me out now I love'em) and back in the day ants (survivalist training, on a dare... oddly not as bad as I thought would be).

I've had chocolate covered bees and chocolate covered ants... but the weirdest/grossest thing I've ever had was a soup that we last time we were in Greece. ( I've mentioned it before).... it was made out of goat heads, skin,eyes,nose,brains everything. The teeth were even still in the jaw when the head was dropped into the boiling water. GROSS!

It was not good. These people are the best cooks. Everything they make is WONDERFUL!!! But this... well...the only flavor we could taste was lemon. It had rice in it too and the rice had gotten gummy and sticky. It "felt" as bad as it tasted.

Had they used less lemon and done something different with the rice and added some more spices it might have been ok. I do love goat and lamb meat.

Sea Cucumber. It was dredged up from the bottom of the Puget Sound, spit its guts out when we pulled it out (some kind of survival strategy). They sliced it open and fried it up on the boat.

It tasted like slimey chicken.
