Now if you don't believe that this is true let me tell you something of some of the things I've eaten in my poorer days:
1. College: The Freshmen Year---I subsisted on spaghetti and "red sauce". The red sauce was an old can of prego to which I kept adding a bit of water and some crushed red pepper (this gave it flavor when it was little more than water and Red #5).My point is that you eat what you have around. That's the only excuse for people eating things like pork rinds, liver, and worst of all asparagus. Thus it's no surprise that my ancestors decided to boil a sheep's stomach (make sure the wind pipe is dangling out of the pot to let out impurities). Then chop up the kidneys, liver, and other internal organs and stuff them in the aforementioned stomach. I mean that makes perfect sense to me.
2. Mission: Cergy-Pontoise---Cockroaches mostly. Well okay we didn't purposely eat them but the apartment was so infested that I'm sure I consumed my fair share.
3. Childhood: Yes it's out of order but it's the most traumatic---My pet rabbits. That's right I ate bigwig. I also ate Wilbur, Peter Rabbit, Tom Turkey, and George the cow (that wasn't a fictional character, that's actually what we named the cow....best tasting cow ever).
So when my dear friend Jen sent me a gummy haggis. You can imagine my joy. Not only would I get to eat the food of my ancestors, but I'd be able to do so in the fifth major food group, gummy. (I also loved the Nihlist gum, no flavor at all. It's horribly wonderful).
And so my dear Scottish friend Ian and I opened the package with all the glee and joy that our collectively nearly pure blood lines could express.
Our very Anglo-Nordic friend Doug decided to join us in this rite of passage.
How could it go wrong.....
Well given my facial reaction you can begin to guess. What you don't see is me running to the trash to spit the whole thing out. I guess what we learn is that there's a reason that the Scots also invented Scotch.
Yet still the wives tried it...I think that's the best part of the whole thing.
Now for another video. Sorry to get you with two posts in one night, but I felt bad for neglecting my readership. I blame John for it. Stupid Facebook.
