Carrie Harris has today posted a great video from SNL spoofing the cult sci-fi classic 'Soylent Green' (long live Charlton Heston and Phil Hartman). As a child, I recall running between two houses and ripping through a large spider's web that was draped there. Of course, my mouth was wide open as a screamed like a little girl...I ended up chomping down on the offending beastie and swallowed it faster than I could say 'arachnophobia'. One would call that "accidental ingestion."
As an adult, the grossest thing that I consciously ate was calf brains. It was served up as part of a meal that I ate while travelling abroad. We were half way done the tasty, mince-like substance before someone thought to ask what it was. The gentlemen at the next table also had calf brains, but it was presented in a more solid, brain-like form. I of course kept eating. Having eaten liver, haggis, cod tongues and yes, juicy spiders, what's the big deal about a wee bit of brain? Anyone got some grossness to add to the list?
