    Strange food in the grocery store

    I've seen frozen lamb heads and all manner of animal parts in the store over the years. Then, I saw this not long ago. Appetizing? Anyone? Makes me think of getting a shot and hoping the spots go away. Not something I'd like to have for dinner.

    What have you seen in the store you'd never eat?

    Strange food in the grocery store

    I worked in a grocery store in Phoenix that sold heads - cow, goat, lamb, pig and horse. The Hispanic butcher was find of saying "You've gotta be a hardcore fawkin Mexican to eat a damned horse head!"

    If you've got spotted dick you might want to consult your physician.

    A few years ago, I got (out of curiosity) some scrambled egg push-ups.

    Weird, and not at all tasty, like you would think.

    Yeah, it was a night of drinking, debauchery and women of questionable character. I wasn't using very good judgement at all, I wasn't even phased by weird street food. What had me concerned is that the antibiotics took longer than usual to get me back on the horse.

    You were drunk, huh? Spotted dick was on the food menu at the restaurant.

    Scrambled egg push-ups were on the menu at that other place.

    When we go back south I see them in their jars and ask myself how I would have ever eaten them in the first place. But, I would probably try them again. I do remember loving them. Them and these pickled sausages....

    I seem to recall that the scramble egg push-ups were used as some sort of freaky sex toy. I'm thinking that they may not have been of the best quality as I was obviously in a very seedy part of town, away from the prying eyes of the authorities (and proper hygiene). I wonder if I got the spotted dick from those? However I may have been misdiagnosed since those antibiotics really took a while to clear me up. I think I'll have to give Vietnam a whirl next time.

    My hick dad used to eat both the sausages and pigs feet after cutting firewood. He used to get them at the gas station. I stayed with the PB&Js from home.

    Southern check--
    Pigs belly? Who doesn't love bacon

    Pig skin? Sure, deep fried delight

    Pig leg? Whether it is a ham or a boston butt, you can't go wrong.

    Pig feet?

    See, it doesn't sound that unreasonable.

    And perhaps ease up on the alcohol intake just a tad, lest something really bad were to happen.

    When all-drunk most of my escapades seem to start with the smallest of infractions which tend to lead to tragic misunderstandings. Ted will be much, much safer now.

    Imitation calamari probably qualifies as strange food - not really in a good way either.

    If you buy your pigs feet from the gas station, you might be a redneck!

    My dad grew up on a small farm in Rupert, Idaho. I think pickled pigs feet was considered a delicacy over there, but he could never get any of his kids to eat it. He swears pickled watermelon rind is awesome too. Never tried it, although I'd probably be willing now that I'm older and not suspicious of anything he says is good.
