Cow Udder and Other Utterly Bizarre Food at the 9th Annual Weird Food Festival. Oak Park, CA.
Imagine being invited to a “dinner” where for the amuse-gueule you are served kangaroo jerky. Then out come the hors d'œuvres — a trio of miniature Korean spicy baby crabs so small they look like red beetles. Another appetizer is presented and you soon discover that it’s pan-fried beaver’s tail. A tray of gelatin cakes derived from acorns shows up for your eating pleasure as well. Then there’s the Russian bread on which you may either spread the horseradish jam or pure pork fat. Pick your poison. An entrée appears; it’s a cow’s udder, naturally. At this point of the meal, you wouldn’t be the slightest fazed if a catatonic and drooling Ray Liotta was rolled out on a gurney with a hole on the top of his skull and dessert spoons jutting out of his brain.
This ain’t fat with a P-H, yo!
Want some beaver? Heh, heh, heh. I said “beaver”.
Cod liver. Shiver me liver!
If you were at this dinner, would you:
a) call a friend and invite him?
b) call a friend and have him call you back on your cell to give you an emergency exit from this freaky feast?
c) say you are allergic to absolutely all of the food and watch the other guests violate their GI tracts?
d) eat with abandon and pop a couple of Tums when you get home?
Or you can just click play and watch this video of the 9th Annual Weird Food Festival for yourself. See what I do for you guys! I sacrifice my gut and gullet so you don’t have to. I’m such a giver.
