So, the other day I found out about balut and I have to say it really grossed me out. Which I feel guilty about, since I realize it is just a cultural bias and I am sure that vegetarians feel the same way about me eating beef, but still.

It's f*cking crunchy. Cue Monty Python - "If we took the bones out, it wouldn't be crunchy, would it"

Clearly it should be lovingly enfolded by a dark and velvety layer.

It's one of the few things I will absolutely not eat.

It's not in principle different from eating a duck. However, without shkhita, it is not kosher and you wouldn't catch me eating it.

Where did you go? Here is something to tease you out of hiding perhaps...

Кац, чтобы сберечь свой сад от воров, развесил на деревьях таблички с надписью: «Б-г всё видит». Ночью на одной из табличек была сделана приписка: «Но Он не доносит».
