    Is there an animal or animal part you wouldn't eat?

    Primal Fuel
    Even if it was given away free?

    For me it's scallops (makes me gag). And blood (which just makes me a big baby).

    What about you all?

    I'll eat every part of a pig but the oink.

    So, I guess no.

    I don't care for kidney, and tripe needs to be cleaned WELL. Beyond that, it's all good, and I can find a way to make it palatable.

    Horns and hooves would be pretty hard to chew I expect, other than that i'm game to try most any bit at least once and haven't found any bits in the butchers I don't like.

    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    For some reason Balut really doesn't seem Kosher to me.

    One of my regular grocery stores sells sheep testicles. I think they were sheep. Maybe beef. Definitely halal. But they aren't grass fed organic so I ain't touchin' em.

    Honestly there's a lot of stuff like that. Most of it is OK when I try it, but not great. I've had blood sausage and it was OK. I've had the basic heart/liver/stomach type offal but I don't line up for them. The most prosaic, and uniformly the worst for me, is simply animal fat. Blubber or whatever you want to call it. Fatty tissue without any muscle. The mouth feel, etc. has caused me to gag and literally vomit on multiple occasions so now if if I bite into what I think will be meat and it gives like fat I quickly spit it out. I'm OK with marbled meat to a point, but warm fat just ain't happening.

    Love scallops though.

    It's weird, I love shellfish mostly. I was eating raw clams on my grandma's knee. Something about scallops.

    I had a friend who was married to a native American and she said his family never wasted anything on an animal. Kidding around, I asked her what they did with the asshole. She never missed a beat. Said they played poker for it.

    I probably wouldn't eat testicles/urinary and defecatory organs for the ick factor, and avoid eating brains because of the risks of eating prions that cause spongiform encephalopathy.

    Fellow primates.

    And I have a (what's surely entirely irrational) irrational thing against bugs, though sea bugs (e.g. lobster) don't bother me a bit.
