They were asking for trouble


I’m not a picky eater. That’s clear by looking at me. But I think I would draw the line at a so-called delicacy that recently sickened seven people, three seriously, in northern Japan. It seems the life-threatening ailments were caused by eating improperly prepared blowfish testicles. Blowfish poison is said to be 100 percent more poisonous than cyanide, so it would take a certain level of bravery, or stupidity, to eat even a fillet. But testicles? It gives a whole new meaning to “fish nuggets.”

THAT is the reason I don't eat testicles...

Well, not the ONLY reason... but a good one!
