Absolutely Tasty

Gaki no Tsukai is a Japanese variety show featuring the comedy duo Downtown, comedy duo Cocorico, and comedian Yamasaki Hosei. They’re the people behind the popular Silent Library and Punishment Game videos that you may have see on YouTube. One of the bits they do on the show is called Absolutely Tasty. They all bring two unusual ingredients to add to a dish. They all have to sample everyone’s concoctions at the end. It’s not as extreme or dangerous as other activities, but it can get pretty gross. The video below is the one they did with rice. An actual bear’s paw may or may not be an ingredient~

Would you dare eat/drink one of this concoctions?

Dangerous Eating

Would you eat a dish that if not prepared correctly it could kill you? Well, fugu is right for you! Fugu is the Japanese word for puffer fish, and it can be lethal if not prepared carefully. However, people enjoy the dish because of the taste and the unique sensations it gives you, such as tingling of the mouth. If you ingest fugu that has not been properly prepared, you will become paralyzed, yet be fully conscious. Eventually, you will die of asphyxiation, or the inability to breath. Many Japanese people have already died due to fugu poisoning. Is trying this Japanese delicacy worth the risk?

Do you dare?
