Omnivore meme from Very Good Taste!  I did very well but still lots left to try, which makes me happy. (And they've got to be kidding on the "crossing out" option.  Right?)

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.

You should be able to get Black pudding, either in Brighton or Dorchester. Look for Clonakilty brand and you might as well get the Whitepudding too.

Makes a delicious breakfast with some brown bread and a glass of beer.

Thanks! I'll try it! :-)

Don't forget to make the nom nom nom noise...

#5 - you may not have had crocodile, but you've had alligator--how different can they be?

#30 - are you sure you've never had bagna cauda? I nearly think I remember having it, and with you.

#75 - some of the venison you've had was, technically, roadkill

I have no idea how different crocodile and alligator might be (they both taste like chicken?) but I'd forgotten about the alligator. And we haven't had what seems to be officially "bagna cauda" but something close. Re: roadkill, lol! you're right. :-)

You're much more culinarily (I know it's not a real word) adventurous than I am! I haven't had half of the things you marked. But I noticed you didn't cross anything out... Roadkill?

Don't sell yourself short! First, it is a real word. :-)

Second, much of the list has to do with access. I'm in a medieval recreation group that will serve things like hare and brawn and venison at their feasts. And I'm near Boston, which has a lot of ethnic restaurants and markets.

And third: roadkill? It turns out I've had venison from a deer that had been killed by being hit with a car, lol! Otherwise, I can still imagine circumstances, certainly of survival, where I'd be willing to eat it deliberately. And if someone said it was in a stew I'd just had, I don't think I'd throw up. :-)
