Gross! The Explorer's Club Annual Dinner fare at the Waldorf this year. The theme is to eat what you might encounter out exploring, but at $1000 a plate, presentation (and sauces) are everything. This year's menu features goat testicles, shanks of kangaroo, skinned TX rattlesnakes, human-grade maggots, tarantula tempura or soy (heard the leg hairs get stuck in teeth and taste astringent like old Brazil nuts), calf eyeball fritters (gelatinous/chewy and makes your southern stomach contents head north), roasted mealy worms poking from tomatoes, etc. The orginal article was in The Week Magazine, but I can't find it online. Here's another.

I've had some of that, and it's good, but the spiders and scorpions are TOO MUCH.

Scorpions and spiders are meant to be admired.. not eaten. :(

You've never run across an angry calf eye or an enraged goat testicle?

No, no hook. It has a good bump in it like it's been broken, but no hook.

I've never broke mine. Just looks that way.

What on earth did you do to cause that?
