Food for thought? (Gross-out warning!)

Food for thought? (Gross-out warning!)

CONTENT WARNING: If you're too young to remember when Pokemon first went nuts, or if you're squeamish, you might want to tune out now.

Here's a blog to sink your teeth in to! Umm ... or not. A Serbian chef has released a cookbook/great-conversation-starter on how to cook testicles! Which I assume someone would then actually eat.

"Waiter - there's a hair in my testicle soup! Oh ... no."

I don't want to go into the gory details (because I just ate lunch), but the recipes include a Testicle Pizza, and the book also shows the correct way to "peel a testicle", to help beginner cooks get the balls rolling. Har-har-har.

If you think that's pretty wrong, then you probably don't want to know what goes into meat pies in Australia. (I'll give you a clue - it involves rind, connective tissue, nerves and blood vessels). And don't get me started on hamburgers.

But seriously, once you know some of the things animals killed for food go through, the whole idea of eating any part of their body becomes a bit cringe-worthy.

The good news is that it's easy to avoid these mystery meats, and in the process improve your health, help the environment and save animals all at the same time! By going veg, you'll find yourself in the company of people like Leonardo da Vinci, Missy Higgins and the Incredible Hulk! Which would also make a pretty interesting dinner party. Bags sitting next to Missy!

So next time you're making a pizza at home, perhaps consider one of Ward's Easy Peasy Cheesy Vegan Pizzas, hold the testicles. Wait, that ... came out wrong.

He he he... A hair in my testicle soup. Oh, I won't go there.

I don't know, when you really, truly consider the reality of eating meat, testicle pizza does not feel all that much more vulgar. I don't understand why most meat eaters have no qualms eating thighs, wings, breasts, connective tissue, blood vessels, flesh and blood, and yet are grossed out by eyes, tongues and testicles.

It's all pretty gross to me.

I agree with Sarah. In a way, a book like this is good because it is encouraging people to use all of the beast, rather than just the parts that appear appealing. IF you can't handle the idea of eating testicles along with your rump steak, perhaps you should be rethinking your diet. peace tongue

Balls or no balls, the thought of eating meat is slightly repulsive - I'll agree with everyone on that front. But a bullock, is a nut, is a testie - it's flat (or round ha) out gross.

The world scares me...

If people are going to eat meat, testicles are a good idea when you think of all the animals that are castrated - if you have a male dog, a male cat, a male horse etc, most likely they will have been castrated.  And if animals are going to be killed for meat, surely it's best to eat all parts.
