    Okay then. I'll begin.

    I dislike anything in the "gruel" department.

    I know it's very non-Anglo of me but I despise porridge, cornmeal, polenta and Cream of Wheat. It triggers a rather untriggerable gag reflex. And to me it's also what it must be like to eat warmed wallpaper paste. Bleeeech.

    I don't particularly like veal either unless it's been "doctored" rather heavily with seasoning and wine.

    Beyond that I don't truly dislike anything except for overly spicey foods.

    I'll generally eat anyhing so long as it's dead, or at least not moving. Some horrors I've come across and some childhood and current dislikes

    • Ocra
    • Marmite
    • Roasted Roaches (Cambodian river ferry)
    • Artichokes
    • Penut butter (but love Satay:confused:)
    • Rat Foetus' (SE China)
    • Warm Milk
    • Tripe
    • Pigs Trotters
    I've eaten them all, and some other UGHs but not always knowingly.:eek:

    Tripe, menudo, needlessly spicy foods, anchovies that ruin an otherwise good pizza. And Cheez-Whiz will ruin any food it comes near.

    *holds up the vegan card by way of a warning* :rolleyes:

    Anything with meat, fish, poultry, etc. in it, since I tend to see them as bits of hacked-off corpse rather than as food, and have a strange personal philosophy (instilled by an even stranger grandmother in childhood) that 'he who puts pieces of corpse in himself hastens along the path to becoming a corpse himself'.

    And likewise anything with egg, which is just placenta in my mind's eye.

    Ah alex. I envy you that status. Good man. I've spoken to several vegans in my circle and without exception that 'hacked-off corpse' is a common theme in the explanations I get. Do you think it's something developed or was it inborn?

    Nevermind. The more I read the more I can see how it came to you.

    Oh dude, I completely agree. They're absolutely horrible.

    HUH!! I'm outraged. Peanut butter is probably the best thing mankind has ever thought of.

    I will certainly take your word on that...

    Come to Cape Cod! We dig them at low tide less than a mile from here and bring a shucking knife, cocktail sauce, lemon, and horseradish to accompany.

    Fresh oysters and a setting sun are about as good as it gets (short of good screwing).

    Yummay!

    Save some for me. I love oysters. New Orleans pre-Katrina is responsible for my introduction.

    I was a vegetarian for many years, too long a story to tell about it's undoing. I could never make the leap to Veganism though. I don't have any moral qualms about eating animals, only about the way they are treated in life before they get to me.

    That's a key part of why I don't eat much meat but as it's almost impossible to be sure of the 'provenance' of that drumstick that is mostly a wishful delusion.
