But really… I feel like I got hit by a plane… Or like I got thrown out of a plane without a parachute, landing head first into an over-sized, ripe cactus-tree.
Or… Stuck in the airplane bathroom after someone spent far too long in there, after their in-flight meal…
And speaking of meals…
I have a little “mealy” game for you…
I will call it:
GUESS THE FOOD, Taiwan Edition!
Seven-course meals… For lunch and dinner… And even with my SPECIFIC DIET… I still managed to eat more than a family of six would over the course of a month (THANK YOU TINA the tour guide!).
Any who… Lets have you jump right into this game, as I jump right into a steaming hot bubble bath with an ice pack on my forehead!
GUESS WHAT THE FOLLOWING FOODS ARE…
Hint: This is all vegetarian. Buddha chows down on this stuff on the regular.
Hint: A delicious, and slightly fishy… Light telegram.
Hint: Called by another name, it really doesn’t seem that out of the norm.
Hint: I don’t really think you need one…? The real question is… How fast did I eat this?
Hint: Captain Hook would approve of this dish.
Hint: Clearly the woman serving this did NOT understand English… She said this was vegan. It’s NOT!
Hint: There are roughly 3 grams of protein in each square!
Hint: That’s NOT fur.
Hint: And that’s not mulch for the flowers!
Hint: The CLAW gives this one away.
Hint: You wouldn’t eat this on your birthday… Even though it looks like confetti cake.
Hint: Rack Rack City Bit**
Hint: A “sunny” display of my favorite food on the face of the planet.
Hint: Doing the back-stroke like a BOSS. Wait, that’s not a hint…
Hint: Lets play Mancala. Okay, my hints are starting to suck… And that’s an African game. FAIL.
Hint: What a saucy “pearl”.
Hint: Tempura has NOTHING on this dish.
Hint: We could hit a baseball with this dish!
Hint: This is what Agent K & Agent J in MIB hunt…
Hint: You’d think this were a flying squirrel, but it’s not.
Hint: No, that’s NOT Mr. Hanky. If it were… Then I ate a whole lot of SHIT.
Hint: This hugged my taste buds.
Hint: Lil’ Wayne would be jealous…
Hint: Four XX sitting in a tree…
Hint: If you’re thinking someone’s birthday was celebrated during this trip, you’d be mistaken… Just your typical Saturday night dish in Taiwan.
Hint: Lay’s has yet to create this flavor of chip… And for good reason.
Hint: I guess these could be considered “tea sandwiches” as they do look like sandwiches and… Tea was drunk when eaten.
Hint: This one was kind of a JERK to my teeth!
Hint: Lawn mower remnants, I think not!
Hint: Out of all the dishes, this one gives me the willies and makes me want to vomit.
Hint: Blissful Britt would adore this dish!
Hint: What you might find on the ground in one of the cages of a zoo animal.
