I can't find a member's card but most people around me keep insisting I'm a member of PITA - is that the same thing? Ok, maybe not "member of"...

is there an official Guinness record of beating a dead horse?
I wonder, if we should submit the "mirror flop" thread as an entry.. may well have a winner on our hands!
Mmmm ... horse meat. ( cheval )

You know, the French still do that (can be had in many a butcher shop and there are the "specialty ones", too) ... along with those snails and frog legs.

Slugs and frogs ain't my thing. But really, I would rather eat the dead horses than beat them.

Granted, they don't make great bacon.

I had horse meat once, a long time ago. I remember it having a very strong flavor.

Slugs are GREAT !!! I could wolf down several dozen, easy. And the best place for frog's legs is at a Chinese buffet ... all you can eat ! Mmmmm ...

Despite almost two decades in France, I still have yet to taste horse meat. Mentally blocked here in eating Trigger. Have had many the opportunity and could have purchased some myself ... but, nope.

I have had lamb brains once when I was an exchange student ... horrid, squishy awful stuff. Like eating a sponge that had been cooked in a dirty gym sock ... but then again, that was at the University cafeteria and they could mess up many a thing.

I could never understand the aversion to escargot. People who eat shellfish have no such problem with abalone (a big snail) or conch (another big snail) or whelk (small snail). Perhaps it is because they live in water and the mucous is not quite as evident as with land-dwelling molluscs.

Frog legs? I have a personal affinity for frogs and will pass. The livE hociR is undoubtedly connected to all of this as well as the ill-timed demise of hundreds of thousands of sea urchins.

Probably was a sponge in a dirty gym sock!! School sold the good stuff and pocketed the money for booze!

Properly prepared snails are edible. There were a couple of people here who died after eating slugs on a drunken dare. - only a few years ago. I was living in my present house when I heard on the news.

My grandmother used to make scrambled eggs and calf's brains occasionally. The flavor was very non-descript and not at all unpleasant, but the texture was a bit of a put-off.

I agree. I love shellfish. I would like to try snails, but I have never had the opportunity. Well, I've seen them canned in the grocery store, but I suspect that using those as an exemplar would be a bit like someone deciding whether or not they like Mexican food by eating at Taco Bell.

Hmm. Looks like we've added a few more tags for the thread, but then there are probably hundreds of photography threads around that have horse meat, snails, and slugs in their tag list.

Frogs' legs cooked with aniseed. Real good. That is one recipe in Taiwan.

When I was young my mother would get sheep brains. Then she put it in my sandwiches to take to school. I had to have a hungry those days. I also did not like the 'processed' cheese in summer, it kind of melted. Real cheese (like mature or vintage cheddar) just releases a little oil which when packed between bread without butter is quite nice.
