    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.
