Talking about the bug in candy. Here in Mexico, for one of the first meals I went to, in a really classy restaurant, a bowl of bright red things were put on the table for a starter? After closer inspection I found it was a bowl of chilli insects… The people I was with were spooning them onto their plates and eating a mouth full at a time! They come in a variety of flavours…. And coming from a country that’s a little reserve about what we eat, it was bit of a culture shock!  w00t.gif
Just another point, in England we mainly only eat the parts of the animal you can see from the outside. In Mexico if it can be cooked, they eat it. Nothing against their culture, I’ve been here long enough to respect them, but dam…
For instance, at a fair you normally get toffee apples extra… in Mexico it’s sweet corn, fried, which is nice, but, it fried with bright yellow chicken feet, claws and all, and the claw is popped into the Styrofoam cup and sweet corn poured over, once they have eaten the corn, they pick up the foot and nibble the yellow rubbery skin off it…
Also the other day I was eating grilled chicken, and a bowl was placed on the table with what looked like slightly yellowy coloured onions strips? I was about to put some on my plate when I was informed it was chicken intestines that have been boiled and let go cold, which is served as a side dish…

As I have said, nothing against Mexicans, they probably see some of my English food as strange (can’t imagine what) but that’s what makes the world so great, diversity…

Puerto Ricans make great chichirron (fried pork rind), but not the one u get in the bag when u watch the superbowl (that's like eating puffed air).

Oh they have that here, really yummy, along with avocado green cold paste. Actually its nicer than it sounds, lol.

But I’ve been a little unfair, there’s plenty of really nice recipes and different styles of food here.

One which we would never think of in England, Is boiled sweet corn, that has stick forced in the end so you can chew it, and it has mayonnaise smeared all over it, then sprinkled with creamy cheese, yummy.

And the tacos here are to die for! And you can't beat hot chilli! thumbsup.gif

one of my old teachers said when she used to live in flordia, they would get tape worms all the time. (from running around barefoot in mudd and stuff) and her mom would have to put tape on her butt hole, and shine a light on it, and they would come out, stick to the tape, and pull..

and one guy, at the hospital i work at, came in and he had them so bad, we had to boil cabbage and he stuck his head over it and breathed in. they would just fall out of his mouth! i was like AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!


thought you ought to know!

uh Tape Worms can't move under their own physical force...
They attach themselves (permanantly) to the inside of your intestines and as they grow, sections of the body break away (egg cases full of thousands of eggs) and you crap them out...so uh starving yourself and then opening your mouth is a load of crap
