Writer's Block: The Terrifying Balut

"Balut" or boiled duck fetus has been identified as the most terrifying food in the world.
It's so terrifying it seems, that this is one of the few dishes they serve on Fear Factor.
In fact I once watched an episode where they had served balut. Naturally, everyone was at the verge of throwing up - except for one guy.

When asked why, he said, " I'm Asian, man". (Balut can also be found in Cambodia and Vietnam, so he may not have been Pinoy. Besides, he didn't ask for rock salt)
It's raining out tonight. Hmmm... suddenly I have cravings for duck fetus. - wmf
