When I was cheffing for a living I would sometimes come across someone who wouldn't eat spring lamb because they looked so cute.
Well, my middle name is Ivor. Perfect for me especially if you stick and ‘e’ on the end because I am an ivore of the omni variety! Carn, herb, insect even. I’d rather eat cricket than play it. I’ll eat anything you care to feed me. Chew it, suck on it or simply swallow it! If you don’t like it spit it out, but at least give it a try. Spiders, sheep testicles, maggots, monkey’s eyes; you name it, I’ve tried it.
Actually, I told a little lie. I don’t eat everything because I don’t like marzipan. It has the same effect on me as my teacher used to when he scratched the blackboard with his fingernails. Brrrrr. I’m shivering at just the thought of it!
Oh, and my middle name’s not really Ivor. Authoristic license you know.
*Some delicacies I photographed and enjoyed in China!
