I’ve seen a few sites that do a weekly round-up of on and off topic web finds. I, having the short attention span that I do, take surf breaks and find all sorts of strange and wonderful finds. So let’s round some of them up, shall we.

10 WEIRD GOURMET FOODS:

If you are easily upset (like me) or grossed out (like me) then don’t go to this link. If you can’t stop yourself from wondering what’s on that list (like me) look with great caution. Several of the items on this list are really, really disturbing.
