Disgusting Food Item of the Week

Lamprey Eels

Lamprey Eels

During the Middle Ages, lampreys were widely eaten by the upper classes throughout Europe, especially during fasting periods, since their taste is much meatier than that of most true fish. Especially in southwestern Europe (Portugal, Spain, and France), larger lampreys are still a highly prized delicacy.

Is it just me, or do these things look like giant penises?

What on earth would make someone look at one of these things and say to themselves, “I think I’ll put that in my mouth!”

And that just brings me back to my first question.
