  2. Not sure I’d want to drink something called Zit?? Some of these are just nasty sounding!!! Garlic coffee,boiled frogfish, toes w/ butter and jam??? CRAZY!!!

  3. DRB LOL I knows those frogs sound delish don’t they!

    Hell-da welcome to insanity, ta for the correction – what is it by the way? Yers Garlic Coffee keeps the vampires away, very highly recommended in Romania!

  4. Okay… Hopefully you don’t have too many Souf Efrikan readers. My sisters used to tell me all these disgusting things when I asked what were we having for dinner/lunch/breakfast. A few of them…

    1. Skaapholle en uiepitte
    2. Beesballe en raape
    3. Slangkak en chutney
    4. Hoenderpoepol en tamatiesous
    5. Vistiete en aspersies

    Hehe! Sorry… I actually ate Mopani worms a few times in Zambia, horse (yuk) in Switzerland, sheep brains on the farms (yum) and some things I didn’t want to ask about in Mali and in Mexico. But the weirdest thing was a burger from Wendy’s in the US. Looks like a burger and smells like a burger… But this wasn’t a duck.

  5. Mssc54 eeeeeek
