Armed only with his vast knowledge of all things edible, Andrew Zimmern is on a quest to find the world’s most bizarre foods. As a food writer, dining critic, radio talk-show host, TV personality, chef, and teacher, Zimmern is one of the most versatile and knowledgeable personalities in the food world. He is game for anything and knows the most interesting food is found closest to the source. So whether he’s chasing down large water rodents in the Louisiana bayou, fishing for piranha in the Amazon or flushing out cave bats in Malaysia, you can be sure the guy with the iron stomach will dish up the unimaginable.
We asked Zimmern to compile a list of the top 10 most bizarre (but palatable) foods he has ever eaten, listed in order from least palatable to most surprisingly tasty.
All the creations you see below come from his own production. His project title is "Pencil vs Camera", which is also called as "Drawing vs Photography" or "Imagination vs Reality". He has been taking photos and drawing since almost 10 years. This "Pencil Vs Camera" series is nothing but the result of several years of graphic exploration and a logic consequence of his artistic evolution.

Words. Some of us interact with them almost every day. They’re inexpensive, portable and let us communicate our feelings rather well (like, say, the feeling of wanting sex.) Sure, you could always come up to someone and repeatedly jam your finger through a circle made with your other hand (while furiously raising and lowering your eyebrows) but words are so much more efficient. Unfortunately, it turns out that some of the words that we thought we could trust were lying to us about who they really are. Just like finding out that the lovable elderly man from down the street used to be a Nazi, so will the origins of these 10 English words surprise the pants off of you:
The precise origin of the word is uncertain, though some linguists have suggested that it might come from the root *ghwibh-, which means “shame,” as in “Dear God, look at yourself, woman. You married ME of all people? You should be ashamed of yourself.” Pretty sure that’s exactly how we got the word.

So what does this mean? They’re trying to figure you out too!
Here’s a list of what people wear to the gym and what people think about you:
