Question Of The Day

What's the Strangest Thing You've Ever Put in Your Mouth?

"Spiders and glass."

Photo via Some guys at Sony have enlisted food designers Bompas & Parr to create the world’s most expensive jelly robot. I’ll give you a second for you to pick your jaw up off the floor. Yes, the most expensive jelly robot the world has ever seen. More amazing and expensive than ALL the other jelly robots put together.

The jelly robot is worth £6,000, so I say cash it in for Lidl beans. That’s a lot of beans. You could feed the homeless for weeks. It would be better than putting something as weird as a fucking jelly robot in your mouth.


But what's the weirdest thing you've ever put in your mouth?

VICE: What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever put in your mouth?
Rachel, 29: Probably like, a little, tiny baby octopus. That’s not that weird, I thought you were going to say a little, tiny baby foetus.
No. This looked like a foetus though, they’re gross. OK, well what’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever put in your mouth?
I once bought a cake for someone’s birthday, it was so fucking expensive. Like, £40. But you gave someone a lovely birthday!
No. It was my ex-boyfriend. He was a knob. What kind of cake would you like to give to him now?
One made of shit. And razor blades. Andrew, 25, Graphic designer (left) and a man with a harmonica. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Andrew: Oh, I don’t know, maybe like… [interrupted by a man with a harmonica].
Harmonica man: [to Andrew] You look like Shakespeare [to the writer]. And you look like Naomi Campbell. Thanks, I get that all the time. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever put in your mouth?
Harmonica man: I’m from Prague. What do you eat there?
Harmonica man: I’ll play you a tune. [plays harmonica for 4-7 minutes] Was that One Direction? It sounds familiar.
Harmonica man: Yes [it wasn’t]. Andrew, what’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever put in your mouth?
He’s really good at harmonica. Errr, I guess it’s when I ate a burger and it had a cockroach in it. Intentionally?
Oh no, it was just some really gross place I was eating in. It was disgusting. Cool. Some places do crazy burgers now. I thought you might have been to one of those.
They normally have like falafel. Not cockroaches. Falafel's gross. I don’t know if you’ve heard but Sony have made a £6,000 Jelly Robot? Which is odd. So, what’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever chewed on?
John, 35: Probably snails or frogs legs, I think. It’s not weird in France.
My father’s from the Caribbean and when I told him about it he was baffled. Really? They eat goat there.
It’s like saying "snow is cold". I’m not sure I follow you.
They just couldn’t grasp the whole legs of frogs thing. Did you enjoy the frogs legs?
No, they’re chewy and horrible. Some people say they taste like chicken. Would you agree?
It’s just not right. Same with snails. It’s the snail factor. Could you just sit there and eat a snail? Err, yes. You did.
I was coerced. By who?
France. The French. Billie, 18: When I was in Australia I ate kangaroo, crocodile and wombat. Not all at once. What was it like?
It was really nice but it was really expensive. I don’t think you can get it here. No, crocodiles are almost extinct in Britain.
Do we have them here? We don’t, do we? In zoos. What does kangaroo taste like?
OK. Not as good as beef. VICE: What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Neil, 54: Strange to you or to me? Well, to you. Tell me and then I’ll tell you if I think it’s strange.
Oh. Maybe spiders, beetles, worms, glass… Hold on. Glass? When did you eat glass?
I used to eat beer glasses. Why?
Pardon? Why?
I’d always be in these places where someone would say, "Oh yeah, you can win a bottle of champagne if you can do something mad." In pubs and stuff, they don’t have them any more. So why was glass-eating the first thing that popped into your mind?
I don’t know. I’m just proper mad. I’ll do things that others won’t, see? Does glass taste nice?
What do you think? No. Of course it fucking doesn't. What kind of spiders did you eat?
Just little ones that you find about. Find them anywhere. What do spiders taste like?
Nothing. Well, some have a little bit of taste. Mostly they just taste of nothing. Left to right: Zach, 23, Tom, 25 and Ben, 22. Tom: Is there something you want me to say? Hahaha. No. Is there something you want to say?
Zach: Serendipitously, I was on a website the other day and it was for a "testicle festival". It’s called the Testie Festie. Right. What does it entail?
Ben: Or entrail! Hahahaha. [sigh]
Zach: They just eat a load of balls. They deep fry them all and shit. What’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever eaten?
Ben: Drugs.
Zach: You don’t "eat" drugs.
Ben: It was by accident. I accidentally swallowed all the drugs. It was very fucking expensive. Previously – Is it OK to Hate Posh People?
