Dear Dubya,
re:Sorry to be so chatty here.

for a long time, this tread was broken.. nothing posted here would ever show -- so for months, chatty folks like me were invited to post "that" kind of stuff in "words from German"

We were told, That way to the egress... go to the egress.. in effect.

One day, when i finally came here.. I found the thread broken. I fixed it (well, i sent an email to anu, explained the thread was broken and how, and asked him to fix it.. )

but it is established, you want to be chatty?Post that kind of stuff in Words from German!

so a food thread here is OK, and chattiness is too.

Meanwhile i don't know if there are specific names for eye balls as food. But sheep eye balls are edible. (not that i have eaten them.. its fish eyes only for me!)

sheep eye balls are edible

I've been told that among certain middle eastern peoples (Bedouins?) the sheep's eyeball is considered a delicacy, to be offered to the guest of honor at a feast.

Which in times past, around the 1920's, made for not-little difficulty when said guest of honor was a peace negotiator from a european country with rather different customs.

The astute and tactful negotiator would insist that the place of highest honor be accorded to his esteemed host.

"the most "extreme" food" Keiva asks. I'm not sure what extreme means in this context. I have eaten and enjoyed snails, frogs legs, horse, reindeer, grasshoppers coated in syrup and various unidentifiable things in the middle-east and India, BUT the one thing I tried but couldn't stomach, and still can't, is TRIPE!!! Ugh!!

dxb.

TRIPE

The sine qua non of menudo (q.v., http://www.vivacincodemayo.org/recipe.htm)

I can attest to its hangover curative properties but I generally had it for breakfast.

Yum!

Never had soup for breakfast, Bill? Why, it's a great way to wake up--and stew is even better! Put it in a big ol' mug and sip away while you're looking over the paper or reading through the new posts on AWAD! And the best of all soups in this gustibus of mine (did I spell gustibus right?) is oyster stew. Now there's a great stew for breakfast! Just remember to put the oysters in at the end so they won't shrivel up too much.

Best regards,
Wordwind

Dear WW: 'gustibus' is a dative (or ablative) plural. Not sure what nominative would be. I'd look it up, but Faldage will beat me to it.
Dear Faldage: I'd much rather have New England breakfast - apple pie and coffee.

Dear WW: I do rember once having a mug of fish chowder at Cape Cod Canal east entrance on a bitter cold day.

You got you about an hour and a half Dr. Bill. I ain' got nothin here at work. No, wait... looks like it's gustus.

That'd be:

      Sing         Plural     
Nom gustus gustes
Gen gustus gustium
Dat gusti gustibus
Acc gustem gustes
Abl guste gustibus

That's *if it's third declension but I have this feeling it's fourth declension.
