    I've eaten zebra, crocodile and tarantula before now, but I'm wondering if anyone can beat this for the weirdest thing to eat.

    So, go!

    Fish eyes might be the strangest.
    Sea cucumber is the worst.

    Yak butter tea in a Buddhist Monastery in the Himalayas.

    Antelope chitterlings in Spain many, many years ago. Still licking asphalt trying to get the taste out of my mouth.

    I once ate (yes, ate... it was pretty lumpy) a shot of "wine" a friend of mine and I made from gummi bears.

    I once brushed my teeth (very briefly) with foot fungus cream.
    Does that count?

    I don't think this beats anything here, but squirrel and turtle are probably the strangest things I've had. Some people think sushi is pretty gross too, so that might count.

    Raw salmon eggs are among the tastiest things I've ever eaten.
    You can even see the little fish fetus in the translucent shell.....yum!

    What is wrong with you people D:

    I don't know how it's called but it's a polish family that made it: some kind of apricot inside a half cooked white past with weird milk and...I don't know but that was the weirdest thing ever

    Seagull eggs, all years before 1985, and boiled gigas oysters most weeks during the winter. And breast of curlew tastes like steak (pre 1972).

    Before I became vegetarian, I disliked a lot of meat products that various members of my family eat, and have eaten: tripe, chicken feet, pork's blood, goat mixed with alcohol (my dad's invention?), duck egg foetus (with the foetal juices swimming in there)...

    Yeah, I'm pretty tame compared to everyone else's stuff!

    Locusts in honey, I got a live batch and prepared them fresh in my kitchen. All in all it was pretty good, fried nicely with butter.
    Cow brain, very tender and quite tasty. It's a traditional dish in the Moroccan side of my family.
    Snails, at my wife's parents' in France. I thought it was incredible, it was cooked with garlic and herbs.
    Turkey testicles, often on our local BBQ menus, but not often eaten. Not bad actually.
    Beef and horse tongues.

    I'm sure there are other things I'm forgetting, or that I simply don't consider strange enough to list.

    I just want to know how the tarantula was prepared, whether it was recognizable as a tarantula when you ate it and how it tasted. I honestly believe I would choose to starve before eating a taranula. Zebra and crocodile might be unusual, but don't sound particularly unappetizing. Tarantula, on the other hand...

    My wife accidently ate a bug one night as we were driving. And no, she wasn't hanging her head out of the window. The bug bounced off the mirror into her mouth. She didn't care for it.

    Once I was taken a nap on the sofa. I woke up to my pet rat putting his whole head in my mouth. I did not eat him. But I know what live rat tastes like.
