  • We buried a dead baby hawk the other day. I had no idea we actually were preparing a meal for later this month. I think I'll call it Hork Hawk.

  • "Hike" is still used for starting. The general command for "run" is "on by," meaning "ignore that moose in the trail and keep going."

  • That's why we love you, c_b. You do all our work for us.

  • Skipvia, what about gee and haw? Let's not forget the historical but no longer used mush, supplanted by the harder-sounding hike. Oh hell, lemme just go start the damn list...

  • Darn! So that's what my problem is. I kept trying to move east from Pennsylvania. ;-)

    Sionnach, from reading alone (NOT tasting), I'd agree--and I too wish I hadn't looked up casu marzu. *cough*

  • Yes, chained_bear--I've lived here for 28 years or so, having moved from SC to NC to OH to WA and finally AK. North and West, that's my motto.

    Your screen name is evocative of my adopted state. I wondered...

    If you want to establish a sled dog list, start with these: iditarod, lead dog, and wheel dog. There's more...

  • I think that casu marzu is worse than stinkhead, but de gustibus and all that ...

  • Skipvia, are you really in Alaska?! How awesome. I'm totally down with sled dogs. I have a thing for sled dogs. Damn, I should make a list...

    October 10, 2007

  • Skipvia, I envy you for living in Alaska. I do not envy you for having tried stinkhead.

    And don't even get me started on stinkflipper. I think I need a soft pretzel.

  • Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up yum!

    October 10, 2007

  • I've never encountered stinkflipper, but I suspect they are fairly similar. Essentially, you "preserve" the fish head by letting it do a controlled rot.

    This discussion is making my stomach queasy. It's not something you forget easily.

  • Is that like Newfoundland's stinkflipper? I consider myself fairly adventurous culinarily speaking, and even I can't imagine getting a forkful (spoonful? Nevermind, I don't even want to know) past my lips.

  • Very gingerly. There's always the risk of botulism. Living in Alaska has its risks and rewards.

    Having tried them, I can't say I recommend them.

    October 10, 2007

  • You've tried them?

    October 10, 2007

  • You should try some. Your reaction would be even more pronounced.

  • *gag*

  • Salmon heads fermented for several weeks by placing them in a grass-lined hole.
