Anyone eaten some of those Asian delicacies like balut (duck fetus) or stinky tofu? I'm curious as to whether they're delicious or whether they're just weird as heck.

I have seen footage of the ducks and geese being forced feed and the DO NOT love every minute of it! It is an extremely cruel process. The poor animals are writhing around trying to get away and I don't understand how anyone could in eat the stuff!
