The Return of Foods I Won't Eat

Due to my busy schedule as of late, I haven't really had much time to post anything new. So, until I have time to write something new, I'll post something from the ol' archives from time to time to give my kindly readers something to look at. There's a whole mess of shit from back then that most people have never read, and it's probably a good thing - I get enough death threats as it is. Anyway, back by popular demand (of one person), please enjoy the following --

Foods I Won’t Eat

There are a lot of disgusting foods out there. Oftentimes swill is passed off as a delicacy, but I’m not dumb enough to fall for that shit. Somewhere in the world I’m sure there are people that consider fermented goat dingleberries the finest of cuisine. Sorry you back-asswards retards, I’m not playing along. Food is often a cultural thing, for example that one African tribe that eats mud, and most likely my taste will offend some people. If your culture includes eating something nasty, national relations take second place to good taste.

And then there’s the whole trend factor. Sometimes high society deems something gross as the newest hot food for people in the know. I don’t care how much chicken tumors are lauded as haute cuisine, in reality it’s medical waste and you can’t do anything to convince me that I should eat it. If I go to a restaurant and they want to charge me ungodly amounts of money for some food that was choked down on Fear Factor the night before, I’m going to call bullshit even if some uppity dick-weed turns his pointy nose up at me. Here’s some shit I’ll never eat because I have enough sense not to ingest garbage.

Caviar: This shit has been considered fine cuisine for years. I’ve never understood why people willingly pay good money for fish eggs. Have you tasted this shit? It tastes and smells like fish pussy (or whatever genitals those slimy bastards have). Hey buddy, smear this filth on a cracker and enjoy. Who started this trend? This stuff is near excrement and it costs more than my life is worth. I’m insulted.

Sushi: I’ve got nothing against the Japanese. They’re a very hardworking people that will kill themselves if they fart in front of their boss. I like some Japanese food and I love sake, but I hate sushi. Sushi is ultra hip in California. It’s all the rage to head to a sushi bar to spend tons of money on raw fish. Sorry if I prefer fish sticks, but there’s something about eating raw fish that turns my stomach.

Roe: Again, fish eggs. Salmon roe, mullet roe, uni, it’s all gross. In this day and age, don’t we have enough shit to eat that we needn’t resort to eating roe?

Soft Roe: Fish jizz. There’s no excuse for eating this crap if you know what it is.

Tripe: Not that tripe is particularly bad tasting, but I had it in menudo one drunken night and it was absolutely flavorless. I just can’t see eating something so weird if it doesn’t at least taste great. Save yourself some time and just gnaw on some rubber tubing.

Escargot: When I was younger I knew a kid who would lick snails for attention. He was a dirty little sumbitch and I cannot justify spending money on a food that weird kids lick to make friends.

Rocky Mountain Oysters: Enjoy your bull nads Liberace, I am heterosexual and therefore do not need to put testicles in my mouth.

Foie Gras: French for bloated goose liver. It’s rare that I see a liver in a worse state than my own, and I certainly don’t want to eat one.

Whale Tongue: I’ve never eaten this before and I never will. All I know is it was so heinous it actually made one of the tasters on Iron Chef uncomfortable. When something can nauseate a taster on Iron Chef, I know I shouldn’t eat it.

Balut (Balot): A fertilized egg with a partially developed duckling. How this ever became a legitimate food I’ll never know. All I can say at this point is, fucking foreigners.

Bugs: People eat all kinds of varmints but I refuse to. I’m not eating crickets, caterpillars, spiders, scorpions, roaches, worms, beetles, or any other bullshit. That’s frog food. People say stupid shit like “It tastes like chicken.” My response - eat a fucking chicken asshead. Resorting to eating bugs is fine if you have no choice, but I can go to the corner and get a burger for 99 cents; looks like Jimminy Cricket is going to live another day.

Roadkill: This food is fine for some people and I have no problem with that. When your name is Cletus and you’re married to your cousin, roadkill is good eats. When you’re an educated city boy, roadkill is pretty much out of the question. I’m not saying I’m better than rednecks, I just prefer food killed with an air hammer over food killed by a pickup truck.

Nasty Cheese: I’ve tasted Limburger and I’m ashamed that I have. Eating Limburger cheese is like licking the armpit of the fattest, nastiest, sweatiest, French chick you can find. Some people might go for that but I am disgusted by it. I’ve had more appetizing crud growing on the underside of my nutsack. I even saw a cheese on TV that has maggots in it. Yeah, that’s the cheese I want, the one with little shitbags writhing around in it. If you don’t have enough sense to know that eating something with maggots all over it is gross, you might as well just kill yourself now because sooner or later you’re probably going to eat something so horrible it will kill you.

Blood Anything: People eat blood pudding, blood sausage, and there are even people that drink cow blood fresh from the cow (You’ll have to excuse them, they’re African). I’d rather lick Scott Weiland’s trail marks than eat any of that rubbish.

There you have it; a list of foods that I hate. If you want to impress me at a dinner party (I’ll be honest here, I’ve never been invited to a dinner party) make sure you have plenty of booze. Chances are I wouldn’t eat anyway. To impress me, have a couple of 40s of Old English in the fridge – that’s a classy drink, much better than fish DNA. After that, have some Evan Williams whiskey or Everclear 151 handy and I’ll be impressed. If you want to impress the hell out of me, get ahold of some authentic, high gravity, moonshine that’s reasonably safe (I don’t want to go blind thanks).

bro....i am totally with you on all that stuff

so much of it is "trendy" on the west coast - give me a break

j holden - The only thing I really enjoy about living in CA is the weather - although I often get sick of the sunshine. And don't even get me started on this state's general political retardation.

honkeie2 said...

why oh why do ppl eat these things? just stick to the usual cow and chicken.

morbid misanthrope said...

honkeie2 - Let us not forget our edible friends of the family Suidae...or the occasional act of cannibalism just to keep things interesting.

jungle jane said...

i realise that its just me that lives in Australia, but can we add ostrich egg to the list?

i find grubs tasty. they are like peanuts - once you start you just can stop. they are fattening though so i only have them with a few beers and a joint...

My uncle used to like fried blood. He would melt some butter in a hot cast-iron frying pan and then pour in the still warm blood. When it was fried, he'd add some salt and eat it with pleasure.

Stop licking your lips, people.

jungle jane - Ostrich eggs: that's a good one. They're like something out of a sci-fi movie. I'll leave the ostrich eggs to be eaten by other ostriches - they do that from time to time you know.

I've never eaten a grub before, and I don't plan to. Nothing against the grubs themselves or the people who enjoy them, of course. But if I want a beer snack, I'll stick to shots of whiskey.

willow - Due to my family's ethnic backgrounds, dead relatives I never met used to enjoy various blood dishes such as duck blood soup, and, if I recall correctly, blood sausage or pudding. I've had mouthfulls of blood enough times to know I don't want to eat the stuff.

I still like this post the best. It educated me on Soft Roe. I never knew there was a demand for fish jizz. As for roadkill, I knew someone that thought that they would try it once. They ended up in the hospital for three days. I guess if you are planning on eating roadkill, you better be the one that actually ran it over.

morbid misanthrope said...

drunkbh - There's an episode of Iron Chef - the cod fish episode I believe - where the two chefs were given whole cod to use. I guess it was spawning time or something, because as soon as the chefs slit the fish open, piles and piles of roe spilled out. It was perhaps one of the most horrific things I've ever seen - not the roe itself, but the fact that the tasters were looking forward to eating it.

That's a good rule to remember concerning eating roadkill. While I have never eaten roadkill myself, I have poked plently of roadkill with sticks.

Willow said...

I personally don't like the metallic taste of blood (I sound like Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter), unless it's in my blood pudding and fried extra crispy - almost burnt.

morbid misanthrope said...

willow - I never thought I'd say this, but I think I'd prefer a salad.

jungle jane said...

oh yeah. salad. add that to the list. such pointles "food".

morbid misanthrope said...

jungle jane - I wouldn't say salad is a pointless food. For example, it is the perfect bait for vegetarian traps. They - vegetarians - can't resist the stuff. If you want to dine on a nice, thick, juicy, vegetarian steak, a little green salad is the perfect bait.
