One of my school teachers, well into his dotage (and now I'm my dotage!) spent some time with cannibals in New Guinea. Apparently human flesh tastes just like pork. And the fingers are the most delicious parts! I don't think the teacher had eaten any, just smelled it and watched others eat it, and talked about it with the natives.

I'm not recommending it, and I have no intention of checking it out, myself.

Let's face it. If we're hungry enough, we'll eat ANYTHING. So they tell us. I personally hope I'd be able to draw a line........

Most folks in that part of the world call Europeans "long pig". 'Nuff said.

That movie is "Alive", and it's actually pretty accurate about the details of the crash and how the survivors managed to live that long.

And just what tell-tale hints might you be referring too? Hmmmmm?


BukyTom my freind,
I'll love food till the end.
But I won't eat those mints,
even rolled in a blintz.
And of the licorice spoken,
I'll offer a token
gesture of pleasure,
but small must be the measure
as in the potent anise
sprinkled lightly on geese
with the other four flavors
that give 5-spice powder favor
in things oriental
and no I'm not mental.

Taste is subjective,
behavior reactive,
this poem distractive,
And now I am done.

Though this wasn't a serious poem, I enjoy a rhyming session now and again. I loved yours. Keep that youthful spirit, no matter how old you grow. It serves you well.

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

Chitterlings are the only food I tried and will not eat again. They weren't horrible tasting it was the smell while they were being prepared.

Any food where animals are mistreated.... i.e. foie gras or veal.

F = Fograh........see I don't even know how to spell that and don't care too.....looks like a diseased liver.
Ducks are force fed every couple of hours until their liver swells... that is how they get foie gras, veal... well not gonna go there.

Indangered animals... and uni (sea urchin), that was just plain nasty!

I love White Castle but I can't eat them anymore. They are steamed on a bed of onions and are really fairly wholesome but the onions can kill ya. The story of white castle is insteresting. They were the very firsat burger chain. They emphasised cleanliness. White everything, clean tile walls, employees in starched white uniforms. All to get people over the idea that burgers were made of mystery meat.

Anyway.

I will not eat liver or lima beans.
