Be Afraid... Be Very Afraid

Let me say up front that the linked article is not for the weak of stomach. Funny? Yes! Disturbing? Possibly more so. True? I can't say with great certainty, although I know that at least one of the described delicacies (lutefisk) really exists.

The Six Most Terrifying Foods in the World

Some (like escamoles and balut) aren't really all that scary, but one or two (casu marzu, especially) may turn your stomach just thinking about them. It makes you wonder just how desperate someone was for something to eat or drink.

Anyway, I guess it's appropriate for the Halloween season. Don't read this right before dinner time, though.
