Daily report: gross

Hello world. I’v just resolved to making one entry a day, and also to keeping the individual posts shorter.

Midnight’s coming closer and bloody ole Dornbirn is soaking wet with rain. Started teaching at 9 today and finished at half five, with the notorious results: fried brain.

Fried brain is also a nice term to google, here are some of the select results:

A member of the Manson clan, chowing on fried chicken – on the side: every once in a while, I enjoy putting on Sharon Tate rememberance make-up, for those who don’t know her: she was one of the unfortunate souls who were killed by the Mansons.

Unless this is a hoax, a Fried brain sandwich is a delicacy served in Evansville, Indiana. Difficult to decide which is worse: the risk of contracting Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (Mad cow disease) or having to gulp down one of those spongiform (“sponge-shaped”) American wheat rolls.

A fried brain oyster shooter is an alcoholic drink served down under consisting of vodka, shucked oyster (i.e. without the shell), cocktail sauce and a few drops of Tabasco.

And now for something completely different:

This is a seapenis, a type of seafood that is apparently served in Korea. Wikipedia, surprisingly, doesn’t know anything about it. Any ideas, anyone?
