|Not quite the same as falls from a tree.|
1 – Puffer fish, Japan
- This is the deadly delicacy that can only be prepared by specialized chefs because, well, IT'S DEADLY AND POISONOUS. Game, set, match.
2 – Live Octopus, Korea
Cut into pieces WHILE IT IS STILL ALIVE. And then you consume it WHILE IT IS STILL ALIVE. How can people eat this without thinking of a live octopus crawling around in their stomach and reproducing. Ew. I can't.
3 – Codfish Sperm, various parts of Asia
There are just no words.
4 – Grasshoppers, Oaxaca, Mexico
Just...why would you eat bugs? Why. WHY.
5 – Fried bat, Thailand
People over the world run screaming from these creatures, so why would you put one in your mouth?
I'm not actively trying to make fun of anyone's culture here, but the idea that there are people who enjoy fried tarantula (I can't even type the word tarantula without shuddering) and half-fertilized duck egg makes me slightly ill. We do some weird shit here in America, but still. Raw herring. I can't. One time my boyfriend ate ox testicle in Africa. Just sit with that for a minute.
To be fair, here in America we eat chocolate covered bacon, fried pickles and alligator, so we're not really able to talk about weird cuisine.

In other news, I would like Morgan Freeman to narrate my life.
Well played, sir, well played. You are a genius and I will re-tweet this for forever and ever.
