I just ran into this list on Chiot's Run while hunting for directions to make a cheese press. Sounds interesting, so why not. (I clearly have time to waste in between christmas present projects, heck i cleaned the carport today!)

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Mark any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here with the link to your blog with you answers, I would love to see what’s bolded on your list and post a comment at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results (so far there are over 1170 comments)
