What's the weirdest thing you've eaten?

Curry

Chefs in Southend, on the south east coast of England, reckon they've cooked up the world's hottest curry.

The dish is so fiery it measures one million on the Scoville Heat Units scale, which rates the hotness of chilli peppers, and is 20 times spicier than a vindaloo.

Eating it is bound to make your eyes water, but what's the weirdest thing you've eaten?

Perhaps it's an unusual animal like ostrich, pigeon or guinea pig? Or maybe something slippery like snails, or eels?

Whatever it is, we want to know!
