    Funny how this turned into a bragging contest of all the exotic things you've eaten.

    It's not until you are in the US or in the company of Americans that you can actually brag about eating beef tongue or calves liver [​IMG]

    It's not really a contest any longer. Lucky Strike wins hands down with the sheep's balls.

    Actually, neither one of those is that uncommon even in the US. Spleen, balls, and brains are pretty uncommon here though.

    Whoever can claim that they have eaten human placenta is the real winner.

    You think they'd let you?

    Can't do that in Chicago anymore.

    Some Jewish and Islamic groups eat the baby's foreskin after circumcision. Does that beat out human placenta?

    There used to be a pagan Christian group that would perform an ersatz abortion, and prepare the fetus with pepper, and honey, and then consume it as a paste-like substance.

    Ersatz meaning they'd use, say, a fetus-shaped spongecake or something?

    No, they would reach into the woman, and take out the fetus. I don't think they had polarized parties at that time.

    Key word: "used to be". The example I gave is still performed, though a lot less common nowadays.

    Also, "pagan Christian" is an oxymoron.

    They were a Gnostic ophite sect who engaged in orgies, and generally did sexually depraved, unhygienic things.

    Ah, thanks. Obviously, I misunderstood your use of the term "ersatz".

    Where do you even learn about this stuff? You must have very curious reading habits.

    Don't know about Islamic groups but I can say that is NOT true and is in fact forbidden for Jews. The foreskin is to be buried following circumcision and not consumed.
