Writer's Block: You Ate What?

What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten? Would you eat it again?

Back in 9th grade, Sarah brought some dark reddish-brown chunks to school and gave me a piece. I thought it was candy (it looked like a shard of candy), so I put it in my mouth. It tasted like a mixture of soap and something nasty, so I immediately spit it out, and Sarah started laughing. It was donkey hoof. EEEEEEAAAAAAUUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Those tricksy Chinese, with their weird food...

Although when you think about it, cheese is pretty damn weird. I mean, whose idea was it, anyway? "Hey, let's go molest this poor mama cow and then drink what comes out. And then, to make things more interesting, let's add a bunch of crazy bacteria until it turns solid and maybe changes color! MMMMMMMM!" Now, I love most kinds of cheese and all, but seriously! That's some weird food idea.

I liked that scene in one of the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" books (I forget exactly, I haven't read them in almost 8 years) where Arthur shuts down the ship's computer by asking for tea with milk.
