Re: Gobsmacked

Whilst I do not always agree with what other cultures consume, I feel that we should practice some restraint in making judgements on what other cultures consider to be food.

This is an international forum and we have no idea of the nationality of all our members and our guests so might I suggest that we exercise some restraint and common decency with the comments pretty please.

That will be all! Class dismissed!

My dad used to like chitterlings, I never liked the look of them and and only found out what they were when I grew up.
Funny how they had nice names for all that stuff, chitterlings, sweetbread etc. Basically GUTS.

As disgusting as eating baby chicks straight from the nest is, I don't think it had any bearing on the Virus. It was more likely to have been a three foot tall scientist who dropped a test tube.

I think the woman could have at the very least humanely killed the chicks before shoving them in her gob.

Re: Gobsmacked

My first view of Chinese people eating was on China Eastern Airlines from Heathrow to Shanghai - airline food and the Chinese were shovelling it into their throats with chopsticks and swallowing - seemingly without tasting it! It was totally disgusting!! Sludgy glutinous rubbish! I was offered a drink and asked for white wine.............it arrived in a plastic disposable cup - about half an inch of red wine!!!

SO glad I went into a private lounge before boarding.............well worth it!
