I Wouldn't Eat It
I have eaten some very strange things, sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly. I must have consumed at least a hundred fruits and vegetables I do not know the name of. Testicles, tongues and tripes are all tasty when properly prepared. Balut was a hurdle to climb but I found I liked it. Living ants and their eggs, young bees and jumping shrimps have all passed my lips to pleasant surprise (well to me anyway). Locusts, rats, crickets, jellyfish, bugs and beetles, small crunchy tasty frogs, I have munched on them all. The idea of consuming a carnivore somehow does not appeal though I have eaten one or two. On point of principle I don’t eat endangered species. There are few enough of them already and my work is in part to preserve them.

Horse Semen on the Menu
The very idea of swallowing Horse Semen make me gag and yet this is planned to be on sale at the Hokitika Wildfoods Festival in New Zealand this 12th March. It is not that I am unadventurous in my diet but there are some things I would not entertain passing my lips and this is one of them.
I don’t care if it is an Aphrodisiac or how hygienically prepared or flavoured it is. Horse Semen to me is on a par with Camel phlegm, which I have accidentally consumed. The collection of the Horse Semen is done by using an artificial mare vagina and safely stored prior to preparation.
The Horse Semen will be on sale at $10 a shot and as well as an unflavoured, for the very brave, will also come in banoffee pie, liquorice and cherry flavours all washed down with an energy drink shot called “Power Horse”. It will be served up by waitresses carrying riding crops.
The claim is that the product is cholesterol free and pure testosterone may be a selling point for some but does nothing to persuade me.
