English cuisine is infamous. And I don't think that's a racial insult because the Brits say that themselves. This is why Indian and Chinese food is so popular there. John Cleese said it succinctly: "English food? Boiled grease." Brain is called "sweetbreads." It's one of those old traditions that's slowly fading away, but the prejudice still exists against the burakumin: people who are too close to death. Undertakers, executioners, butchers, tanners, etc. Chinese love pig ears, they eat them like pretzels. Isopods are merely crustaceans like lobsters and shrimp, and crustaceans are merely one order of arthropods, which also include insects, arachnids (spiders, scorpions, mites and ticks) and myriapods (centipedes and millipedes). Crustaceans are colloquially referred to as "aquatic bugs," but the isopods are a major exception: many of them are terrestrial, and the most familiar isopods are pillbugs and woodlice, so your "lice" description is apt. Isopods have seven pairs of legs and abbreviated carapaces. Many of them are parasites. One species eats the tongue of a fish and then fits into its mouth. It exactly replaces the tongue: taking its place to participate in feeding, while connecting to its circulatory system and taking nutrition from the fish's blood. This form of parasitism-becoming-symbiosis is unique in the animal kingdom. Now, someone was talking about ick factors?Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Mouton is an old French word for "sheep," so the original meaning of the word is "sheep meat." Goat husbandry was not practiced in England so English has no special word for goat meat. As the English language spread to other cultures where it is more common, "mutton" was appropriated for goat meat, especially in cultures where goats are more common than sheep. Goats, sheep and antelope are closely related and in some species the identification is somewhat arbitrary. Goats are one of the oldest domesticated animals, going back to at least 8000BCE. Like pigs and dogs, goats are scavengers, and like those species they were almost certainly self-domesticated to a certain extent, being attracted to our luscious middens (trash piles). Each sheepherding culture seems to have its own terminology for the meat of the sheep as it ages. The term "hogget" is used in some countries, such as New Zealand, for a young adult.
