And you EAT with that mouth?


We humans eat very strange things.

I love my polony with cold baked beans rolled inside.  Yeah, we all have strange combinations that we love to munch down on.

And no, I am not even going to mention things like Mopani worms or fried crickets….thats just fucking gross! 

We all have a list of stuff we will NOT put into your mouth.  For me, its internal organs.  I just can't bear the smell of liver or kidneys. I can't stomach the reek of cooking pork.  I think this stems from when my big sister had to boil an entire pig's head to get the jaw bone for a school project. The reek lingered in our wee hoos for weeks.
I shiver when people discuss eating a good tongue or tripe. I mean, what can be good about  puting an animal's tongue in yer mouth? (and I'm not talking about french kissing it either) except that it licks its own arse and probably other bovine's arses too!  
How about Haggis?  I know, I'm meant to love everything Scottish but who the fuck wants to eat a shredded sheeps liver, lungs and and heart encased its own stomach lining?  Fuck me!!
And those strange things from the sea that make me shudder.  Prawns and crayfish - I like a good crafish thermodore (don't get me wrong) but when I watch people devour their feelers and eyes and suck out the heads, I just want to chuck up. 
Feeling a bit faint, yet?  Let me just have a sip of my tea to calm the stomach jitters.  

I think those fucking things are hideous!  Prawns have ugliest, bulging eyeballs … imagine how scared your innards must be watching that lot slide down your gullet!   I don't want to eat anything that looks back at me,  thank you very much.  Never mind the fact that they die in the most awful way. How would you like to be surprised by being submerged in boiling water until pink and bubbling away?  Lovely thought.
Put you off have I? 
Good. 
Sushi is the new craze.  What if that poor fish is still breathing? And why did we invent stoves and grills? Yes, Plonkers, to cook the stuff before we bloody eat it! 
I love my veggies. In fact, I start craving them if I do not eat them regularly. However, that newish obscene-looking mushroom which is all the rage (or so I am told) and costs an arm and a leg - looks like a mangled pussy.  Yes, people The Love Hole Mushroom is on the market.  No Way Jose am I eating that even if they rename it Magic Pussy Mushroom.
Balute
Eggs. I dread cracking a raw egg with the freaky possibility of seeing a bloody, half-developed chick or an eyeball looking up at me!  A few years ago, I was hysterical with laughter when I saw this ad outside a shop: Eggs, fresh from the chicken’s arse. 

Cannot get more to the point than that , it still makes me laugh  tho! 
Most of us adore a juicy fruit.  But no lychees for me thank you.  I have wiped too many snotty wee noses that look far too similar in my lifetime.  

Oh my gosh, I forgot to mention tinned pilchards! The world is full of economical pilchard recipes and they're budgie priced - Cheap! Cheap!  Until someone pointed out to me that if you look carefully, some of them have little sacks of eggs on the side … I nearly fucking puked! 
We are all taught to eat brown bread. They say its VERY good for us, you know.  More digestible and all-'n-all.  But nobody mentions that it tastes like a fucking Arabs sandshoe. Unless you have wholewheat.  Thats far better but those pesky wee seeds will either get lodged between your teeth for all eternity or you need a trip to the dentist to fix your R2000 crown you've just split in two.
We all love potato salad, right?  Well, its always the first thing to be depleted at our braais (aka barbeques). But please don’t ever buy it from Woolies (sorry Woolworths, I speaketh the truth). The potatoes are usually undercooked and definitely cannot compare with a good old homemade potato salad with loads of full-cream mayo.   Woolies tattie salad tastes like polystyrene cubes tossed in wood glue - totally bland and gross.
And shop bought cakes! Like you see in the corner tea rooms? Don’t they just give you the fucking heebie jeebies? All that decorative crap on top: can it possibly be yellowed 'fresh' cream, icing or the new dairy-free topping? I doubt it. And that baking soda taste in tea room scones just about blows the roof of your head off. 
Watching people in restaurants eating rare steak also freaks me out.  Once again, is it really dead or could a good vet do CPR and revive that poor old moo?  Yuk!  We did invent fire, muthafuckers and its not necessary to eat anything tartar.  That's so for the proletariat.

And so the list continues ... on the bright side, at the rate I am finding fault, I won’t be eating anything any time soon and I will get SO thin that the fattest part of me will be my hair!  
How blissful does that sound?

"polony with cold baked beans"
No wonder you got the farts!


When I get done with a pussy...it always looks a lil' "mangled".


Except for pussy...I can't put anything in my mouth that feels 'rubbery', like lobster and things of that nature. Just makes me gag!

Copyboy said...

I guess I deserve that egg visual after my skin post.

Azzazin said...

Hahaha great post and I agree on almost everything on your list.
Balute I don't even wanna know wtf that is... yikes!

But I LOVE LOVE LOVE sushi, prawns, crayfish & lobster... would rather die than eat any part of their heads tho!

And raw beef isn't half bad either, but only in thin slices, couldn't handle raw minced beef as I've seen people eat.

Polony with cold baked beans???????


I suppose it wouldn't do for us all to like the same stuff would it? ;)

Matty said...

I don't care for those "organs" either. Liver and tongue, gross.

I once saw a show where they served actual live fish to people on a plate in a restaurant. ACK

I was thinking more selfishly and wanting to thank you for this post. It is good for my diet. Never heard of that pussy thing (the one in the picture.)

You and I are not destined to share a meal, I fear. We couldn't get past the bread basket as I picked wee seeds from the whole wheat bread from my teeth!
You know, I can totally "hear" your accent in your posts. It's the coolest thing!

Nocturnal Queen said...

I too cannot eat liver and such, nor can I eat raw fish or other raw meat. Blech! I also can't eat steak or a hamburger if it's still pink. I want all the blood cooked out of it as much as possible.

Wreckless Euroafrican said...

I will eat almost anything.Almost. And, if I didn't know what it was, or couldn't identify it, I'd probably eat it anyway!
Salagatle!

Mo said...

Whimp.

Ducky said...

Most times I will try something at least once. NOT ONE DAMN THING IN THIS POST will ever make it within smelling distance of me. BLECH! I don't like working for my food with little reward (such as crab legs or crawfish).

I can thank you for suppressing any appetite I may have had today. Nasty

I don't eat much meat at all, but unfortunately, my favorite is pork. I LOVE bacon, and am okay with sausage and pork chops. But these days it's mainly turkey meat for everything - even bacon! I tried veggie, but just am not used to it yet.

Ducky has the right idea; I need to print this out for appetite suppression!

Crack You Whip said...

I would never eat that. Ever. And I love Sushi.

OMG I'M GONNA PUKE! TOTAL YUK-CITY!
