The Worst Food

Continuing a theme of "the worst in the world," here's something delicious -- deliciously disturbing.



Here's the product. Check out the percent of daily recommended value for cholesterol.

Do I have to urge to run out and try this product to find out if it really is the worst food? No. This is a case where ignorance is bliss.

Feel free to leave your suggestion for worst food product. Is there anything worse than pork brains (in milk gravy!)?

It isn't really a "product", but a local taqueria here in Santa Barbara has "tacos do ojos" on their menu. I haven't tried these tacos and I can't bring myself to eat them. I've heard they are delicious but I just can't go there.

Doesn't inhaling that stuff cause CIDP?

Thanks gmcfly, I followed that link and almost gagged on my pig brains sandwich. But I did learn a handy new phrase I hadn't heard before: de-braining.

Just remembered something, My Great-Grandfather used to eat Pickled Lambs Tongue, and ( I warn you you now if you have a weak stomach stop here) Pickled Lambs Eyeballs. Never read the labels, but I know where to find them.

Dave, nobody likes a guy who has to promote his own blog.

I forgot to mention that when I was in college, one of my room mates thought he got a good deal on a big pack of cheap baloney. When we read the ingredients, ingredient number one was "beef lips" -- yum!

Blue -- you're right. In an ideal world all the DI fans would promote the site and I could stay above such crassness. But there are over a million bloggers out there. No matter how good it is, you can't just launch something and wait for people to show up. They will never find you amongst the clutter.

DI wouldn't have any fans at all if I didn't do a little self-promotion. You probably heard about me from Dan Piraro, but he heard of me from me. But you're right, self-promotion is far, far less effective than fan referral. What are you doing to promote DI?

I send the comics I find really funny to my friends, who, if they find it really funny, send it to their friends. Isn't that how it usually works?

There's an Italian deli by my house... they have head cheese there. It's really disgusting. I also have some nice pictures on my phone of what they're selling at the deli at Chinatown...

LOL you gringos are sooo picky when it comes to food.

I'm Mexican, so I have tried—and enjoyed— many things that would make you gag: beef lips tacos (yum!), brain beef quesadillas, crickets and maguey worms, etc.

Also, whenever we go to a 'northern' food restaurant to eat Cabrito, we always ask for a couple of heads. I always pick the eyes! :-P

What, you think a burger from McDonalds is 'safer' or less gross? Have you seen the movie 'Fast Food Nation' yet?

I'm telling you man, once the shit hits the fan with this economic crisis, it will be so easy to survive on all the things you'll refuse to eat ;-)
