It's funny that a lot of these need explanations or notes after them. I feel like a lot of them aren't things that should be in the top 100, but oh well! It was fun!

Having actually had black pudding, it's not as bad as it sounds. It's basically sausage with a different texture.

I've not eaten snake, but I have had snake shots while in Korea.

We miss you!
