ice cream... and other culinary delights
That reminds me of the time (a few years back) I got an introduction to blutwurst. Being this naturally suspicious chap, especially where exotic food is concerned, I asked a few people around me what it was made of.. I should have been tipped off when they just gave me a short "oh, it's wurst. A type of sausage" instead of launching into excruciating detail. After finishing the meal, another guy I knew came into the dining area and looked rather surprised.
"You had blutwurst ? That's brave of you..".
Stuttered I : "Umm.. what is it, exactly ?".
Sez he: "Oh, it's ok. just a normal sausage".
Insisted I: "No, no. why am I brave?".
Sez he: "Oh, it's partly made out of boiled blood. Most people don't like that idea" ...
Thinks I, just before making a strategic retreat from the dining room: "Well, no shit Sherlock. Who'd have thunk it?"
