Testing your Meat-Eating Devotion

I know; you’re a meat and potato kind of person. There’s no WAY I’m going to move you toward vegetarianism. Those videos of slaughtered pigs, chickens and cows didn’t even sway you, did they? Nope, you didn’t know any of them personally anyway. So, instead, we’ll just offer you what you like…meat:

Guess the Coyote finally did catch that damn beeping Roadrunner after all. No wonder the series ended. But I digress... Oh, you're a meat-eater connoisseur, eh? You’ll try many kinds of meat, won’t you? How about...

No problem, right? After all, hard on the outside, chewy on the insdie. Ok then, let’s move on to…

Am I getting to you a little bit? You realize those are lamb tongues, right? Come on, sing it with me…”Mary had a little lamb…” and then I’ll introduce you to…

I know what you’re thinking, “sounds disgusting but I’ve heard it tastes like chicken.” It does; I’ve had it before. So let’s step it up a notch…

See, that’s why true vegetarians don’t eat seafood! Stomach feeling a little queasy? No? Not yet? Then let’s try some of these…

Yummy silk worms. Remember, they’re a delicacy in Asia. (and I’m beginning to think that they don’t know what that word really means because it seems to be attached to every disgusting food they eat). But where was I…oh yeah, you’re not even the least bit queasy…

Of course, we can move away from the seafood. Let’s take a look at some bugs that are just yummy…


All three are great to bring to the movies and go delicious with your popcorn.

What? Still hungry? Finish it off with…

There; survive that and you are an unwavering carnivore. If not…here’s your carrot!

I'll take the carrot, please!

mama-face said...

It was definitely not a good idea to look at this first thing in the morning.

gonna go puke now.

VE said...

incredible woody - Yes...at least we can chop that one up...

VE said...

mama-face - I know...the gnomes love it when I catch people off guard...

Jacki said...

Have you heard about the new Jeff Corwin show on the Food Network, where he goes to different countries and tries out their delicacies? Last night he was in Greece and they roasted a lamb. And ate everything, including the brains and testicles, both of which were wrapped in the lambs small intestine. Ick.

He said the testicles tasted creamy. Ick, ick.

Anne said...

I love that carrot! Except I'm right handed so I'll need one with the thumb on the other side, thanks.

Bonnie the Boss said...

I have always sworn I was a carnivor.....Not so sure anymore! I think it was the scorpians! shudder.

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I'm not much for meat or vegetables. If it's not pure chocolate than it's just filler.

Quirkyloon said...

Mmmm delicious! All of it!

I'm just sad.

Where is the Soylent Green?

It's made of....

Nevermind.

ettarose said...

Actually there is not a lot of things that bother me when it comes to food. All you have to do is look at me and you'd know that is true. I have eaten rattlesnake, which was not too bad. Anthony Bourdain eats that stuff on his show and he just had cooked silkworms the other day. Nice try VE.

Kanrei said...

I make it a point to avoid any and all canned meats. Now that jar of scorpions on the other hand....

Quickroute said...

These are disgusting but I've got you beat over at mine!

Gladys said...

I've hd the armadillo, the rattlesnake, the conch, the squid, roadrunner and even grasshoppers and chocolate covered ants but I AM not eating a carrot that looks like a foot. Nope not gonna do it.

Janna said...

I'm with Kanrei. It's not the meat that bothers me, it's the fact that it's swimming around in a can.

Let's see...

If it was actually fresh, cooked by someone who knew what they were doing, I'd try the road runner, the armadillo, and the rattlesnake.

If I tried convincing myself that it's similar to shrimp (instead of insects), I might be able to try scorpions.

I have eaten squid. It's ok as long as it's deep fried in rings with a delicious dipping sauce.
I imagine conch would probably taste the same.

I will never, ever eat crickets, tongues, ant eggs or silkworms, not even if they were deep fried and served with the yummiest dipping sauce ever.

Baino said...

There's something inherently wrong about any kind of meat in a can . .you forgot the pork brains in milk that the southerners seem to be so fond of eating! Nup for me just cut off the horns and wave it over the barbecue!

ReformingGeek said...

I've got a special can of food that I'm saving for my blog. I think you'll like it.

But today, I'd like the crickets with the carrot on the side, please.

Yeah, right.

Chris Eldin said...

Oh man! Scorpions?! EWWWWW!!!

I can't look at this. Just. Can't.

Kurt said...

So THAT'S what scungilli is!

Serena said...

Eee-yewwww! I think I'll opt for a nice cheese sandwich.

subtorp77 said...

Hey! Rattlesnake tastes like chicken, y'know...ahem...and where's the chocolate covered ants for dessert? And ooh...fried worms!

Elizabeth said...

Yuck! Are those all real or did you photoshop some of them??

Jeff said...

ALWAYS get the crickets with eggs. They're horribly bland otherwise.

Alex L said...

Fish don't have balls... oh balls OF fish...

Mrsupole said...

I was okay with everything until I saw that carrot. There is no stinkin way you are going to get me to eat that carrot. It is just too cannibalistic to me to eat a carrot that looks like a foot. Yuck!!!

Give me canned meat anyday. Yummy!!! I mean didn't you grow up eating Spam like the rest of us. I mean if you can eat Spam then you can pretty much eat anything.

God bless.

VE said...

jacki - I've eaten some weird stuff but I'm pretty much a whimp when it comes to extremem foods

VE said...

anne - I'm sure nature will produce another right sided one in oh, say, a million years or so...

VE said...

bonnie - I'm wondering why anyone would think of eating those in the first place. It's not like I walk around and say, hey, bumble bees...I wonder if they taste good with ranch dip?

VE said...

perpetual chocoholic - Now there's a surprise ;)

VE said...

quirkyloon - Soylent green couldn't pass the FDA guidelines...too much fat...

VE said...

ettarose - I've eaten some weird meets...just not in a can. They look worse in a can.

VE said...

kanrei - That's pretty much it...the canning of it makes it seem disgusting. Careful on the scorpians though, I hear they have a strong after-bite...

VE said...

quickroute - I'll bet you do. I get over and see...

VE said...

gladys - Sounds like you're the meat eating master!

VE said...

janna - Well now we know what BUGS you on the dinner table!

VE said...

baino - Yeah, I left out the pork brains because I'd done that one a couple of weeks ago in a different post. There were just so many disgusting meats in a can that I couldn't resist finishing them off (in a post that is).

VE said...

reforminggeek - Holding out eh? Would you like some Buddy Holly with your crickets?

VE said...

chris - Don't worry...they're all dead. I hope...

VE said...

kurt - See how much education I bring you here. Why it's a veritable PBS...without the video.

VE said...

serena - I could go into the cheese making process and I'm sure I could find some disgusting cheeses for that sandwich too! ;)

VE said...

subtorp77 - I've had it before and it does. I'm not sure about fried worms though...they say fried food isn't good for you...

VE said...

elizabeth - I didn't photoshop any of them. I don't know if they were or not; most of them I don't think so.

VE said...

jeff - They're also wrapped in holly (buddy holly)! Badaboom...

VE said...

alex - Fish don't have balls? What do the guy fish scratch then?

VE said...

mrsupole - Spam? Oh no, I didn't eat spam.

I cannot eat that can of spam
I cannot eat it, VE I am

Uncivil said...

Armadillo meat.......yummmmmm.......
opossum on the half shell baby!!!!!!

lime said...

i was ok until you brought in the invertebrates. they get to me every time. *shudders*

VE said...

uncivil - Why does it not surprise me you've eaten that!

lime - I've always got one extra special choice just for you!

Ronda Laveen said...

Mmmm...I just love me some crickets with eggs.

Jaime said...

each one of those sounds more disgusting than the next... do people actually eat that crap???

VE said...

ronda - Don't forget bacon. Crickets go good with eggs AND bacon.

jaime - People are stupid...and these products just prove it

Starrlight said...

GAH.

Cept the conch. Those are yum.

VE said...

starrlight - I say Gah too...but I have had rattlesnake (though not in a can)

Maureen said...

Ew.... even the carrot has me worried.

VE said...

maureen - You should...that's a mean carrot!
