Here’s a chance for a little hyperventilating and belching. Below is a list of 100 things that someone thinks every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life. The list includes fine food, strange food, everyday food and even some pretty bad food -- but a good omnivore should really try it all, supposedly. Don’t worry if you haven’t, mind you; neither have I, though maybe I'll work on it (maybe I won't). Don’t worry if you don’t recognise everything in the hundred, either; Wikipedia has the answers.

Here’s what I want you to do:
1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out (or italicize) any items that you would never consider eating.

1. Venison
