Did anyone ask him if it tastes like chicken? I have been told that unfamiliar foods are often perceived as tasting that way. By the way, it is truly astonishing what some people will eat deliberately, especially under the influence of alcohol. I have actually witnessed someone eat live spiders. (Yes, he said it tasted like chicken.)
I know of a guy who watches the 'solids conveyor' at a sewage treatment plant.
They filter out all the 'lumps' and items that shouldn't be flushed (rubbers, nappies, etc) and it all in a container for land fill.
Its not his job to watch the conveyor, its what he does in his break. He pulls out all the money (paper and coins) and puts them straight into his top pocket. You know when he has been at it as there is a wet stain spreading out on his overalls.
That money went straight back into circulation without washing. I dare anyone to pull a coin out their pocket and lick it.
