Exotic Foods

It's quiet today, too quiet. So, just to liven things up here is some food for thought. First up, a suitable homebrew replacement for viagra: cobra whiskey. Yes, now even the deadest fellow can rise up and strike when the situation demands. Cheers.

But what if you can't abide snakes? Must you lanquish quietly? Fear not, for each there is the proper poison. May I suggest the famous green scorpion whiskey? If you survive the whiplash sting astounding vistas of desire will open before you.

It is generally considered a bad thing to drink on an empty stomach. So while sipping these fine cordials why not munch on a selection of roasted insects with assorted Cheliceriformes?

Best of all, these foods are all imported and you need not fear the derision that the sophisticated would heap upon you if you were so gauche as to serve peanuts or popcorn.

I want chocolate on my mixed selection of roasted insects. There's nothing better than a sweet tasting cock roach. Also, plenty of protein.

OK, bookmarked.

But how are they with rice noodles and some hot sauce?

When, culturally, one is so used to eating certain kinds of food, such examples of what other cultures find edible is always a rude shock.

And I can't even stand my wife's preference for ketchup on scrambled eggs.

Eegads! I can't even choke down lutefisk. Creepy formerly-crawlers, chocolate covered or otherwise, are going to have to wait for some event, or the passage of enough time, that I cannot at the moment even remotely foresee.

Just to further document my culinary cowardice, I won't even go near this stuff.

Thanks for the link about surströmming:

However, the smell can be avoided if the can is opened under water.

That was the best part.

I reviewed this on Liquor Log. Ack. Wasn't so great, but we got someone to eat the scorpion.
