Eating food is pretty much the most predominant characteristic of a living being. Forget emotion or maternal instinct or self-preservation or a beating heart – everyone has to eat. Food is a part of pop culture (think Lady Gaga’s meat dress), food can be political (remember when Donald Trump was strategically photographed enjoying a taco bowl?), and food can also present us with moral dilemmas (the vegans know what I’m talking about). To honour the joyous necessity that is eating, we’ve rounded up some of the most bizarre eats from around the world. Bon appetit!
