Don't eat it Steve!! -- Steve eats things he shouldn't and blogs about it.
  • That's incredible...ummm har har.... Seriously, thanks for the link Kimberly, I needed a laugh. I was hesitant to click on it, thinking it was a: "Look at me! I'm some shithead trying to copy Jackass, and I'm going to eat horse shit covered in my dad's cum!!!!!!" ...but, this guy is genuinely funny, and seems to have some brains about him, as he sticks to real "food" yay! )))))
  • But can he stomach a can of the cheapest canned cat food? That's a true test of will.
  • He reminds me of the Filthy Critic from times gone. (Well, he might be still around, I haven't checked.)
  • I can't thank you enough for this awesome link. Like, super-awesome genius.
  • Yes Rolypolyman canned Cat food is the ultimate test The kind my cat turns his nose away from. Sweet Jesus it be nasty...
  • I vaguely recall eating one of those Beggin Strips things some time ago, visiting friends who had two enormous goofy dogs. Tasted like bacon to me, but we had been drinking all afternoon.
  • I posted this to MeFi a while back, definitely my personal favourite link that I've posted there :)
  • In a similar vein of foods that are not meant to be eaten, there is my My fav is the tamarind candy they found in the street.
  • I have tried the pork skins, Beggin' Strips, and the Potted Meat Food Product. I am experiencing disgust. All over again.
  • Eat it Steve.
  • In consistency and appearance (not counting the tin it's in) the Potted Meat Food Product looks like what I've seen of paté. I don't eat meat but I like the word potted (and pottage). Potted Meat Museum - The world's largest & most diverse canned meat collection. Potted Meat Food Products - Canned meat products have a certain appeal. confession: I would eat spam if it came in a veggie version. That may not be much of a confession considering that I eat veggie corn dogs.
  • That Dolores food company is supremely creepy.
  • It's time for Steve to test some desserts, starting with ice cream from Japan. Everyone's favorite flavor is Raw Horseflesh Ice Cream. From that page, keep hitting the 'next' button for a tour of more stomach-churning ice cream flavors. Putting myself in the other guy's place for a moment, if I lived in Japan, I'd probably be aghast at eating ice cream that contained chunks of rocky road.
  • I'm not sure, but I think that I made the first web version of the Potted Meat Museum. The person I made it for looks a lot like the curator and last I'd heard she was in Chicago. Some of those pictures of potted meats look awfully familiar.
  • After reading the Bad Candy web site, I can't help but wonder... is Tamarind candy typically made in antiquated factories outfitted with lead pipes? or is Tamarind so incredibly unfit for human consumption that not only does it smell bad, taste awful and have incredible levels of acidity, but it also contains naturally high levels of LEAD?!
  • I do believe that he is supposed to cook the meat first.
  • Years ago, my friend Lisa gave me an autographed box of Urkel-O's cereal. It is signed: "To Steve -- God Bless, Jaleel White." I don't know, but if I were God, I'm not sure I'd listen to Urkel.
    Very funny stuff. Thanks for the link,Kimberly.
  • I lived in Japan and I've personally had natto. This describes it better than anything I've ever heard: "Actually, the little pile inside looked kinda like baked beans. It also smelled kinda like baked beans. If they were baked in the filthy heat of Satan's asshole."
  • I've also tried natto after watching the exact same Iron Chef episode he mentions. My nextdoor neighbour was Japanese and I said in passing about the Iron Chef episode, and she fetched me a bowl of natto and rice. I love his description too.
  • Somebody send this man a can of Pork Brains in Milk Gravy (only 1170% of your daily recommended cholesterol)!
  • Why must I constantly be reminded of natto . . .
  • Great link! I just found this linked to from a page I saw on memepool: man eats soap Seemed appropriate.
  • I am disappointed he failed to sample Dr. Bronner's products.
  • I'm surprised he didn't have more problems after eating the soap. My sister got ahold of the Dawn bottle once when she was a baby, and the effects were immediate and not pretty. I wonder if it's some un-natural element in the Dawn?
  • Another horrible (not only to me) Japanese dish: yamakake soba. Cold buckwheat noodles topped with cold tuberous slime and a slimy, cold raw quail egg. Apparently it can be made with natto, too. Even more tangentially: natto as a metaphor for society
