If I ate some of that stuff it would kill me for sure.

Jonathan said...

Don't tell me you haven't eaten carp. Anyway: nettle tea? haggis? roadkill? What's the point?

Rachel said...

Aren't goldfish carp? And do I need a point.

leelu said...

I got this before the cross-out bit, but my comments should give you a clue.

Holmes said...

This isn't a real list without fried okra and fried oreos. I'll add collards for good measure.

Rachel said...

Collards, yum. Fried okra, not so much. Never had deep fried Oreos. Have had fried cheesecake, though.

I'd add matzo balls, to my ideal list.

Holmes said...

Go to any state fair in the South- fried oreos and fried snickers are a staple. Of course, such delicacies might kill you instantly.
