Why... why would people eat something with such vile health effects?

Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, pain in the abdomen, and bloody diarrhea.

And this is a delicacy?!?

I don't understand why anyone would consider eating anything containing live insect larva. I would eat a whole bag of those ketchup crisps in one bite before I let an ounce of that "cheese" in my system.

Well, for one, it's an aphrodisiac.

Also, it's a traditional food and it has cultural background to it, so people try it for the same reasons as they would escargot or haggis. Except with casu marzu, you get side effects.

Speaking of haggis, I'm surprised nobody has brought it up yet.

One of the most commonly-known bizarre foods from around the world, and nobody posts it until page 30.

I see... well, in that case, if I see any attractive women around the next time I'm wielding casu marzu, I'll be sure to offer them some! Let them deal with the negative side effects while I embrace the positive ones! =D

@ Haggis
Whose idea was it to mix all that junk together, cook it in a sheep's stomach and pass it off as food?

Although I do admit, I would try it if I ever found myself in Scotland!

I grew up in the UK, never tried haggis before. All I know is you can't not say it in a Scottish accent.

Ya know what would go great with 'aggis?

Bovril.

Nothing like a warm cup of beef tea to wash down minced sheep organs.

First off, I don't know if this product really existed because it seems too surreal to be true. Besides, I don't know if this has been posted before, so apologies if somebody did.

All I can say is "Wow".

And another one that seems less dangerous:

Not only do those Lego fun snacks basically give the idea to small children that Legos are okay to eat, but they also don't even stack. It's one thing if it nullifies everything a parent has ever told a child about what is and what isn't a choking hazard, but if you can't even build with these fruit snacks, what's the point?

It would be safer and more beneficial to give this to a child:

At least the toothpicks aren't completely and utterly useless.

And yes, the Lego fruit snacks are real.

And another one that seems less dangerous:

Lego my Eggo. There, I said it.

I've actually had those before. They're not bad. The shapes are a little iffy; they don't look like Legos. More like blocks.

That apple can't be real...

I'm sure it's just half an apple with the toothpicks stuck in from the other side.

Or it's filled with strong toothpicks. Who knows.

I'm more curious as to what kind of effect this would have:
