I've always found anthropomorphic food disturbing after that scene in Benny & Joon where they talk about the California Raisins.

But that takes the cake (which is in the shape of a severed arm).

Kind of reminds me of that ST:TNG episode where they're eating a cake that looks like Troi.

No rest homes for clowns??? Do you not know about the "Inner City Clown Group Retirement Center"?? Or ICCGRC as most refer to it.

The jellied meats over here are actually pretty good. It the same thing with bolongy, I wouldn't touch it in the states but over here it actually tastes good.

that surprisingly didn't gross me out. I would never eat that crap but it still dosn't botter me. I think its because i've lived half my life in europe where weird foods like that is normal.

plus now the vegeterians don't have an excuse for not eating meat. They can now eat clown.

Of course, face meat is not as bad as it gets...

There is an abomination called Haslet, which comes in two varieties.

i) Innocent-looking Haslet, which a fine-grained processed sausage, and seems quite harmless.

ii) Full-on Haslet, sometimes also called Brawn, which is diced offal (any dead beast will do, throw in watcha got) set in a gelatine sausage. Think about it.... pink squares, grey squares...which is cow brain? which is pig's testicle?? etc etc

Yeuck!

Lies! Haslet is lovely. Mind you, I do regularly disgust others with my desire for offal. If you are going to eat meat, I fond it slightly hippocrytical to say "Ugh! hearts are disgusting!" If you are going to eat beasts, eat the whole fscking thing!

And as far as I'm aware, brawn is generally made from a pigs head and is predominantly brains. (But I'm not sure what is supposed to go into haslet).

Ugh. Did you know that they are engineering meat now? Like, in a petri dish they are growing meat. And within the next few decades, it may be available on the market. I just hope its labelled.

This is a fair point. Most of the yucky bits are quite nutritious and it would be wasteful to discard them. Having said this, there are always going to be social or cultural habits which determine which bits of animal are "off-limits" for eating, and these will vary from place to place.

For example, I know people who would happily eat tripe, but not heart, or liver but not brains. And do the people who eat kidneys know what they do for a living??? [Razz]

Yes, it is a standard expirement in any undergrad biochemical engineering lab to grow hamster cells in a petri dish. What would be wrong with this? I did this in lab. These cells aren't even GM.

Haslet and brawn at least contain recognisable animal parts, which cannot be said for clown sausage, which could only come from a country with little respect for real food as the UK. Very depressing.

I was a child during the 50's when food shortages did not give us the luxury of being fussy eaters. As a result I have always enjoyed all forms of offal. Those meat eaters who turn up their nose at liver or kidneys are missing something really delicious, and good value for money too. Tripe can be good too though it can also be rather bland. Heart is rather boring, and I don't actually enjoy brains, though I would eat them if I was hungry enough. Unfortunately the rest of my family don't share my omnivorous tastes, so I usually only have these things when eating out.

Where do you eat out? The only sort of offal I regularly see on menus is haggis, black pudding or steak and kidney pie.

I can't eat kidneys, liver, etc. based on the fact that I know what they do in the body. Most edible organs are used for filtration which means that some of the filtered material is going to remain in the organ after cooking. That's just me though.

I have considered trying brains on a few occasions (they make cabeza tacos at a shop near here), but I have yet to meet a person who actually likes them.

I use brains every chance I get, even when I have to borrow.
