Introducing Blog Contest Thursdays...


Count on Thursdays for Sweet Sour Salty Spicy Crunchy Contests. Many times they will be "What is it?" contests, like the mashed brain one from a few weeks ago, and this one here. What is it?
Now, for next week I am hatching a completely different kind of Thursday contest, one that will involve prizes, even. So stay tuned.
Meanwhile...go ahead. This picture was taken in Thailand.

I'm guessing deep-fried goat knuckles. But actually, that may be a little too tame after the mashed brain.

Brian Bowker said...

I'm thinking the deep fried head of some kind of bird - maybe a quail? Doesn't look quite right to be a Chicken, but maybe. The beaks have been pulled off.

Michelle said...

Dang, I was going to say knuckles too. I guess I should say something diffrent than goat. How about (and I hate to say this ) dog?? Just thinking about my two babies, Penny and Scout, it makes me feel quesy talking about eating any part of them.

Michelle said...

different - sorry for the spelling error!

Mungo said...

Looks like a pile of doggy chew toys to me. Man, those things are tasty.

marjie said...

No one has the right animal yet. Or chew toy.

Amy T said...

Alright, it looks to be a limb separated at at joint ... like the leg of chicken cut from the thigh. But chicken, and I quote Annette, is too tame. Okay, I'll go dog...

Angie said...

Marie, my co-worker, thinks it is the tail of something 4-legged. Sheep?

Michelle said...

Cat tail. . .

The Norris Clan said...

ooo, ooo, ooo! You KNOW I love contests!

Ok, fried cat legs! I dissected a cat for A&P and that kind of looks like it :-)

All you readers... watch out! You are looking at the winner of the last two Marjie contests! Bring it!

marjie said...

It's not from a cat, a dog, a goat, a sheep or a bird (or quail or chicken). It's not a leg, a tail, an arm, a wing or a knuckle.

marjie said...

And Karyn, my dad won the last contest with his answer "mashed brain." But you have certainly won more contests than him or anyone else.

marjie said...

Deb Walters just submitted a double-guess via email of either "pigs feet" or "rooster talons."

No and no. Not from pigs, either.

Michelle said...

Fried pastry with some kind of weird filling. . . perhaps the marrow of an animal or insect bodies like crickets?

Annette said...

Can I make another guess? I'm going to go farther down the 'Oh my' route - deep-fried rat spinal cords. It seems there are an abundance of them.

Mungo said...

They've gotta be that old favorite:

Deep-fried Bull Penis.

Oh, the yum.

marjie said...

MUNGO- JUST as I was beginning to fear that no one would even ever guess a cow part, you hit it. Yes, you are RIGHT!

Your prize will be one of these, mailed directly to you.

But Annette and Michelle, you get creative points. When I read your guesses, I actually restrained a gag reflex (something I am all too-familiar with). I have seen a lot in Asia, but I have not seen marrow croissants or rat spines. OH MY.

I am way impressed with Mungo's guess! Way to go! Everybody had very thoughtful guesses...what a crew reading this blog!

Mungo said...

What? I won? Yippee! I am so proud. All I want as a prize is my very own bull penis.
