If you are an epicure, you would love to know much about varieties of food. Generally, types of food people consume differ from region to region. A prevalent meal in a country may be an abominable dish in a neighbouring state. Food that a not common universally and have a strange way of both constituent and preparation is usually called a weird food. Imagine blended cow’s dung seasoned with onions as pasta on bread!
A weird food is culturally acceptable; however, very disgusting to outsiders and makes them gag which in most case usually causes laughter among the indigenes. Also, weird food is used to make distinction between an indigene of a land from a foreigner, although not always effective. Weird food sometimes holds a traditional significance of a tribe or a community.
Many lists have been compiled on variety of weird food; some are deadly shocking while some are mild on the sense. Among the most scary ones is the pig blood meal severed in Hungary. Some of the blood of the pig is collected, put in a frying pan and scrambled eggs are added to it. Another type of weird food is the Squirrel brain eaten in the southern US. The head of a tree rodent is cooked with the body and after it is boiled, the skull is cracked and the brain is taken out to be eaten. What a weird food!
