I really can't complete with the foods on this thread - best I can manage is barbecued prawn heads. When done properly, they just melt in your mouth with an intense prawn flavor.

Let's not forget the Cajun favorite the mudbug. You all know how to eat them. You know, eat the tails and suck the heads. Love crawdads.

Didn't Zimmerman eat barnacles in Chile? Or was that Bourdan? I guess you can scrap your bottom and have lunch!

Karlhead, when eating crawfish you pinch the tails and suck the heads.
Pinching the tail pops the meat out, suck the head for the fat and juices.
Be careful not to OD on salt and cholesterol

Having lived on the doorstep of China for 12 years, I've learned the chew quickly and swallow in as big a lump as possible method of eating. On one occaision however, even this tried and tested method failed me.

I was again the only non-chinese at the table and as such the centre of attention when a doughnut shaped meat thing in a bowl of murky water appeared. No matter how much I chewed I was making no headway. But I took heart as no one else around the table seemed to be making headway either. Eventually it got to the stage where it was obvious that everyone was waiting for me to do something - swallow it I thought. I couldn't - I spat it back into the bowl, apologising profusely. As soon as I had done this, everyone else spat out their doughnuts.

Aparrently cows rectum is unedible and should only be chewed for a few seconds for the flavour

During my stay in Thailand with the military I witnessed a lot of wierd things and this is one of them. During the rice harvesting season there is a large insect, about the size of a palmetto bug, that the Thais find a delicacy. These bugs eat rice and their abdomens swell up. The Thais will only eat one gender of the bug however. Can't remember which one though. Anyway they pick up the bug and open its wings and smell it. If it is the wrong sex they will throw it away. If it is the right one they squeeze the rice out, directly into their mouths. It tastes kind of like burnt brown rice. Not bad if eaten with hot peppers.
