I am also hungry and my fucking omnivore is 100% when I look in my Kühlschrank

tyndra said...

if I read this I think I won´t get more than 20% ;))

Zing said...

honestly i had to look up some of the things in a dictionary but yes i tried the froglegs and other mad stuff like snails, snakes, kangarooo (how is that spelled in english?)and ostrich etc. etc. but to be honest again most of those things weren´t that tasty, did you enjoy the snails Lars?

Lars said...

Günter, now we all want to know what is in your Kühlschrank.

Tyndra, bist denn nicht ein Abenteuerin ;P

Zing, snails are disgusting!You've had kangaroo? I tried mountain lion once, not all that tasty. There are stores that sell osterich, I'm in no hurry to try it though.

Ostrich is absolutly delicious! You should try it, Lars.

Lars said...

Oh no! Grouch spells better in english than I do;P If I ever have the opportunity I will give it a try, but I'm not going out my way to do it.
