Found this meme
over at Elisson's....
It's a bit snotty for my tastes, but I've got a couple things to say...
Put the ones you've eaten in bold...100. Venison
Depends on you you're preparing it. Little garlic, little butter and it's tasty.
99. Nettle tea
Nope.98. Huevos rancheros
97. Steak tartare
Alligator, but not Crocodile.
95. Black pudding
Nope. Not gonna, either.94. Cheese fondue
Don't eat much fish, but I have taken in carp.92. Borscht
Interesting.91. Baba ghanoush
Tried it only because of a skit on MTV's The State.....not my cup of tea....
Nope. Not gonna, either.
Nope, never heard of it.88. PB&J sandwich
The best? Nice creamy pb with cantaloupe jelly made by the mennonites not too far from here....
87. Aloo gobi
Nope.86. Hot dog from a street cart
Not a bad dog, either.
84. Black truffle
Nope.83. Fruit wine made from something other than grapes
Blackberry, which was good. Raspberry, which was vile. And Muscadine (close cousin to the grape, but not technically one itself)...the worst I've ever been messed up was on a bottle of muscadine wine....
82. Steamed pork buns
Nope81. Pistachio ice cream
Yep. It's been decades, though.80. Heirloom tomatoes
Yep.79. Fresh wild berries
Worst case of diarrhea I ever had came after eating roughly 92 pounds of blackberries straight off the vine.
78. Foie gras
Got asked what this one was, not long back. If I had been on Jeopardy, I'd a lost this one.77. Rice and beans
Yep. It was actually once a staple of the BSTommy diet.
76. Brawn, or head cheese
Nope. Not gonna, either.75. Raw Scotch Bonnet pepper
Ye. Gods. Very nearly gave me whiplash.74. Dulce de leche
Yep. Won't ever again. I'd get much the same from sucking the snot out of my sinuses and letting it run down my throat.
No, but would desperately like to.
71. Bagna cauda
Nope. You're making shit up.70. Wasabi peas
These are what God eats up in heaven. I found these on a trip to Georgia a couple years back...a Harvey's had them on an endcap with potato chips. Bought a can. Before I left the Andersonville area, I went back and bought two more. Perhaps the most underrated snack ever.69. Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl
Yes. Judd Apatow, Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen probably have something to say about all that, too.
68. Salted lassi
Had some last time I went out to Blackstone...66. Root beer float
Yes, though it's been decades....
65. Cognac with a fat cigar
64. Clotted cream tea
Nope.63. Vodka jelly/Jell-O shot
Yeah, and even though I was 22, I felt that I should have known better at the time.62. Gumbo
Yep.60. Curried goat
Yes. Curry gives me nightmares. Did you know that? Too much curry gives me nightmares.59. Whole insects
I had to mark this one, because I was feeling dangerously uncultured. This one was not intentional, however.
Again, you're making shit up.57. Goat’s milk
Yep. If I have an upset stomach, Goat's milk is the very best cure.56. Single malt whisky
Nope. Not gonna, either.54. Chicken tikka masala
A personal favorite.
Nope. NOt gonna, either.52. Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnut
They would revoke my Southern-by-the-Grace-of-God card if I said no.51. Sea urchin
I'm lying.50. Prickly pear
Yep. Another fine thing.46. McDonald’s Big Mac Meal
The Big Mac is little more than triumph of a the marketing machine. It makes me angry. Every three or four years, I'll eat one, and remember this.
44. Dirty gin martini
Nope.43. Beer above 8% ABV
Just recently found a an IPA put out by Rogue Breweries, with a weighty 9.5% Helluva beer. Rogue very rarely does something badly. At the end of the day, though, it's just not worth what I paid for it.42. Poutine
Yep. Kinda dig it. Good thing it's not readily available down here, otherwise I'd be Even Bigger Stupid Tommy.41. Carob chips
Yep. Remember what I said about curry? Well, too much chocolate gives me nightmares, too. I avoid it, generally. Carob doesn't have the same effect. I don't rush out to get carob, though. I just do without.40. S’mores
Yeah, but the aforementioned chocolate thing, and the fact that I loathe marshmallows pretty much rules this one out ever again.
No, but given the description, it appears that the Germans are attempting to trick me into eating mass amounts of curry via my love of sausage products.
Nope.35. Frogs’ legs
Yep. Too much work for too little reward. Just get yerself a bucket of legs at KFC and be done with it....34. Beignets, churros, elephant ears or funnel cake
All except for churros. Isn't Jerry Seinfeld eating one in that dipshitty commercial with Bill gates?33. Haggis
Yeah. The first go round did not go well, but I would like a second chance to attack this bugger. If only to prove to myself that I could do it.32. Fried plantain
Yep. Tasty, too.
31. Chitterlings, or andouillette
Nope. Not gonna, either.
Never had the pleasure, though I will soon.
29. Caviar and blini
28. Louche absinthe
27. Gjetost, or brunost
You're making words up.26. Roadkill
Let me just say that we ate barbecued goat, and the goat we ate, the owners had slaughtered after killing it when it ran in front of their truck.25. Baijiu
Nope.24. Hostess Fruit Pie
No self-respecting comic geek of appropriate age can live life without eating one. I think I've probably eaten a couple of these in the past year.
22. Lapsang souchong
20. Tom yum
Nope.19. Eggs Benedict
No, but oddly enough, I knew exactly what it was. There was a brief fascination with Japanese candies and sweets, right around the time Manga REALLY exploded. I remember looking at these at a rack in the Hastings out in Murfreesboro.
17. Tasting menu at a three-Michelin-star restaurant
16. Kobe beef
We actually learned to make a version of this over a campfire, in scouts.13. Flowers
Not officially. I have suspicions, however.
Nope. I'm feeling really ignorant here.10. Spam
Yep. And if I have my way, it won't happen ever again.9. Soft shell crab
8. Rose harissa
Yep. Again, I do not think I would be allowed to live here if I had not.
6. Mole poblano
5. Bagel and lox
4. Lobster Thermidor
2. Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee
Tastes like chicken. Like chewing on a superball.
