Here in Gloucester we have Elvers,we fish them out of the Severn river, the favorite way i eat them is to add them to an omlette.
Cynicism is an attitude or state of mind characterized by a general distrust of others' apparent motives or ambitions, or a general lack of faith or hope in the human race or in individuals with desires, hopes, opinions, or personal tastes that a cynic perceives as unrealistic or inappropriate, therefore deserving of ridicule or admonishment. It is a form of jaded negativity, and other times, realistic criticism or skepticism. The term originally derives from the ancient Greek philosophers called the Cynics who rejected all conventions, whether of religion, manners, housing, dress, or decency, advocating the pursuit of virtue in accordance with a simple and unmaterialistic way of life.
I don't really have any weird things. Weirdest thing I ever drank was Kombucha Tea. That was an interesting taste.
My parents said I used to eat cat food when I was very little. Had to hide it from me, or so they say. lol Maybe I thought they were super tasty cheerios. Does that count?
I have eaten turtle, smoked carp, and crawdads (river crustaceans). The only irregular food I would like to try again is venison (deer).
July 1992 in Pennsylvania, at breakfast in a restaurant: ultra-heavy pancakes with ultra-greasy fried bacon and ultra-disgusting maple sirup. I'm still digesting it. *burp*
Balut and Century Egg
Century egg...not so bad.
Balut...never again...needed a LOT of sauce to choke it down.
Squirrel, deer, elk, moose, groundhog, rabbit, even beaver...I have hunted since childhood and was taught--if you kill it, you eat it!
Also got to go to a series of "Wild Feasts" (a once respected money making venture for charities), so I have had kangaroo, several types of impala and gazelle, whale, elephant, hippo (oh gag! Seriously NASTY tasting to me!) and, since this was back in the 70s, I have had some species that are now considered endangered.
Gotta say...the baby seal was sweet and tender.....
