Strix the harbinger
guards the exit gate, quizzing all
Who will pass this night?

Bizarre Foods

Tonight, between endings of the All Star game, I found myself on the Travel Channel - Bizarre Foods with Anthony Zimmern. It the program where the short bald guy eats stuff like fried cockroachs and aged eggs-things really not fit to eat. This week it was an hour of..."Bizarre Foods-Minnesota". They proceeded to eat ethnic things, things I've eaten all my life, and he visited some of my favorite restaurants. And implied it was "bizarre". Hey, lutefisk ain't no bizarre food. Its...it's...Lutheran! It's church basement fundraiser food! (Dryed cod reconstituted in lye and then rinsed in water. Broiled and slathered in butter it's reported to be quite good- or at least edible.)
