    Inspired by the various food-related arguments we've been having lately, I decided to go the opposite direction and race you to the bottom.

    1429282-vt_surstromming.jpg

    This is surströmming. Translated it would be sour herring. It is fermented herring that is kept just on the edge of being rotten for at least six months, and usually about a year. The Japanese have studied it and come to the conclusion that opening a can of this shit is among the most pungent food odors in the world. A German food critic supposedly said that the trick to eating it is to vomit after the last bite, rather than the first. The fermentation process is sometimes so extreme the cans just spontaneously explode, which has caused certain airlines to ban travelers from having cans of surströmming in their luggage. A German landlord kicked a tenant out for opening a can indoors, and won in court when he opened a can in the courtroom to prove how horrible the smell was and that he was not just culturally insensitive. For some reason, there are people who go nuts for this shit, despite the fact it smells like someone died of something related to explosive diarrhea and then stewed in it for a year or so.

    This is a challenge, SRK. Show me your local cuisine can produce anything worse.

    Snakes mom likes to dip short tailed game birds like Quails and other fowl in surstromming.

    Its 2017, black people need to stop eating chitlins... Leave that slave food back in the 1800's.

    Got the nerve to look at me like im crazy when im like ima pass give me a steak or some bacon or anything other than musty pig intestines. I dont care how long ya momma been cooking them

    Cultures have been eating intestines the world over for as long as we have had pigs and cows to harvest them from. What do you think those nice expensive sausages are cased in? Also, tripe is fucking delicious. What blacks should do is branch out and eat other types of intestines besides the pig's, like sheep and goat.

    I tried black sausages when I was in Bavaria, Germany. Eeeewwww Blood Sausages, no thanks. They put blood blocks in Bun Rieu but that stuff tastes alright. If you didn't know what it was, you would think it would be tofu or something.

    Its not my culture to eat the worst cut of meat if there are better things at the table. LOL

    Its like me deciding to eat a vienna sausage or potted meat when I can just get a pack of hotdog beef franks instead.lol

    That's like saying that you should'n eat liver because you could eat steak instead. They have different tastes, you can eat both.

    shitlins is slave food and taste like snot gelatin.

    Well if you had a choice between pig anus and a ham sammich, its different tastes but I guess you can eat both! lol
    me, personally give me the honey glazed ham everytime.

    I'm always going to choose the better option.

    Who the fuck wakes up this day and age and be like damn I sure could go for some pig intestines and hot sauce.

    How about a nice bowl of soup with some black fungus on top?

    Shit's like $3,200 a pound or some shit. People eat shitty food because it tastes good. Fungus and mold? Yes, please!

    I mean, I'm not from Scotland, but haggis has always been my go-to for "this is pretty disgusting."

    Having said that, as a Southern belle, everyone who's not from the American South has given me all kinds of shit over eating souse, which is pretty much just headcheese pickled in fucking vinegar. I had a girlfriend once who told me I had to brush my teeth in between eating souse and kissing her. I don't think she'd let me go down on her if I'd eaten the stuff in the past 48 hours.

    Nah, my only HDR-experience is offline. I've recently started playing ST on fightcade again though, and I'm having a blast.

    Also Norwegians do not use ö. We use ø. Do not confuse us with our weird-ass neighbours (who we still love in spite of them being all Swedish and shit).

    Came here to post this. Chitlins are the fucking worst. How anyone can eat something that smells like straight up ass is bizarre.

    Dude, blue cheese is fucking delicious, and that's just moldy-ass cheese. Fungus and mold isn't necessarily disgusting, it depends on what type of mold and under what circumstances it's been grown. Hell, fermented food is a stapble in large parts of the world, and that's basically one step shy of intentionally rotting it.

    Well, nothing beats that first post, imo... I've also heard of a thing called "hakarl" as a random question from Jeopardy... it's rotten meat and an Iceland "delicacy".

    but if you ever have the misfortune of traveling to Memphis.... please avoid the ironically named "Best Pizza In Town". I think it's actually difficult to get pizza "wrong" but damn.... they accomplished it. This place has, without question, THE worst pizza I've ever tried. Grease was just constantly falling off each slice like the pizza itself was throwing up....it was unbelievable, man. Someone would have to pay me to ever eat there again.

    Also--the worst food I've ever seen in person ---SOUSE....You can see it in almost any grocery store's lunchmeat section. It amazes me that any person would look at souse and think "y'know...that might be good". Nah, man.... :sick:
    Let's see---the price on that... yeah it would take at least several thousand dollars...probably $9,500+...maybe even 10k at least...straight cash for me to ever eat that bullshit.

    edit--reminds me--a certain friend I know... his wife admitted that she and her family ate souse back in the day... I could never look at her the same way since that admission. Fortunately she doesn't eat that shit anymore but holy shit that is disgusting.... and people who know me realize that it takes a LOT to disgust me.

    That is all the exact same shit. Same cuts of meat go into all 3.

    I just realize, most Americans are pussies when it comes to where their meat comes from.

    If it's not a shoulder, rib or flank meat, people freak out. It used to be if people wanted meat you had to go in the wild and kill the beast your self.
    And it's traditional on your first time in many cultures to eat the heart, and or liver right their on the spot Raw, while its still warm.
    Actually most hunters used to eat the liver on the spot as it's the part that goes bad first but also has the most nutritional value.

    Meh. This is what happens when someone starts the thread with some SS tier /endthread stuff. All that's left is to talk about low tier stuff like it's hardcore.

    Glad Chitlins has been mentioned.

    Love my Grandma, she could apparently cook the best Chitlins out there, I'll never know because the smell repulsed me to the second floor of the house whenever she cooked them. Hated to see my Grandma decline because when wasn't cooking fucking Pig Intestines that shit was delicious, but when she gave up cooking chitlins I had a party in my head.
