Food & Sh#t

Meet the meat 
From the tree
Fleshed out
A sight to see
There they are
Dangling free
Odd shaped berries
Below the knee

Fact: Avocados are named after reproductive organs.
Indigenous people of Mexico and Central America use the Nahuatl word āhuacatl to mean both “testicles” and “avocado.”

Additional: Avocados are berries.

When you next find yourself
Relaxing on pure white sands
Consider this fact
And what actually coats you hands

Fact: The famous white-sand beaches of Hawaii come from the poop of the parrotfish.

The fish bite and scrape algae off of rocks and dead coral with their parrot-like beaks, grind up the material in their guts, and then excrete it as sand.

Worth its weight in gold
Time to set it free
Stored within the hold
Open the royal treasury

Fact: Pigeon poop is the property of the British Crown.

If you want a job done right
Do it yourself

And in that same vein

If you want to find cavities
Put them there yourself

Fact: Cotton candy aka fairy floss aka candy floss was invented by a dentist.

  1. 😂Excellent. I had riz de veau in France. Riz means rice and veau is veal, so I thought I was onto something safe. Riz de veau is calves testicles! They were tasty and tender, but I’m sure I wouldn’t have thought so if I knew what i was eating.🙂

  3. The first one, yeah, makes sense…. orchids (or in olde English ‘bollockwort’) too.
    The third…why??? What does the queen want with pigeon poo?
    I do imagine her chowing down on swaterducken at Christmas, just because she’s the only one who’s allowed to eat swan. I know I would.

    1. We do seem to see genitalia everywhere we look.
      I think the poo has some military benefits, explosive or something.
      Oh yer, and ride around in the carriage so everyone could see.
