SFR 428: Mmm Brains

–What started out as us trying to record a podcast to fill-in while Bobby worked Sunday shifts became quite an ordeal when we lost all recorded audio. 
–We recap last weekend’s pig roast, and talk about how Bobby, along with a few other attendees, ate pig brains. Jason wonders why eating animal flesh doesn’t have the “yuck factor” that eating animal organs does for some people.
–Monday’s solar eclipse gave this country at least a couple minutes of unity before we all hated each other again. Trump was said to stare at the sun, but so did we!
We’ll talk about how the experience was in our neck of the woods, and why we are looking forward to 2024.
–The original creators of Unsolved Mysteries say that it is likely new episodes will be produced by the end of the year. Once again, we wonder who can fill the shoes of the great Robert Stack.
–A “demon goat” in India is frightening villagers with its human-like face. As our friend Sharon Hill pointed out, the deformity will likely lead to a short life, which is sad. But what may be even worse is the number of people thinking this animals is the result of sex with a human.
–One of the “Slenderman stabbing” girls have taken a plea deal in the case; one that will, if nothing else, lead to a reduced sentence should she be convicted in the upcoming trial.
–A local “haunt” popular among paranormal enthusiasts is actually saying they are done catering to ghost hunters. Bravo! Bobby has a story about his visit there once upon a time.

    Are you seriously put off by a hog roast?? My local agricultural show in the UK (Suffolk Show) always had one openly turning on a spit. The iron rod went from the mouth down to the anus and was turned by a slow motor over red charcoal. When you wanted some it was carved off the body and the flesh put in a bun. Everyone from toddlers to pensioners queued up for some. It was gorgeous. How can you eat any meat and not love a hog roast? Very strange. Brain is normally called brawn and is chopped up and served in aspic. Kidneys are nice, liver and onions delicious, though I am not keen on tripe (stomach lining). You sound very sheltered.

      Mark, I have no idea how you misheard what we said so badly. Why would you think we were “put off” by a hog roast that one of us put on? That we prepared together? That we put over a grill for 15 hours? That we then devoured the following day? That’s ridiculous.

      What we said was that it was the first time we prepared a large animal like that ourselves to eat. We didn’t just go to a fair and have it prepared for us like you do. We didn’t go buy it at a market already carved up. We did all that. So, yes, it was new, and some of it felt strange because of that. But we, and well over a hundred people, enjoyed a bountiful meal on Saturday, and everyone had a great time. I’m really not sure how you got the idea that it was such a hardship to us. I think I can speak for all of us when we say that we would love to do it again.

      It is true that I did not partake in the eating of the brain, but I am glad that you have in the roasts you have attended in the UK. I think it is great that all parts of the animal are used. But please, the next time you think something we say on the podcast doesn’t make sense, write to us and ask for clarification. It will save me the trouble of a long reply trying to correct misunderstandings.

      Thanks for writing.
