The Omnivore’s Hundred

Always a sucker for these big list style memes, it seems before meat and cheese left my plate I made a decent stab at being an omnivore. However, those items are off the list now - but I think I can live without eating horse or intestines from now on.

What to do
1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at Very Good Taste linking to your results.

This looks fun, and I was thinking of doing it too, but I think my results would be nearly identical to yours, with the odd exception, (well, I've eaten snake).

Also, shamelessly ignorant tech question: how do you do a strike through/cross out? I'm befuddled on the keyboard.

Easy peasy snake girl :)

Am having trouble writing the code so that blogger comments accept it.

The command is strike, between <> and the closing tag is /strike between brackets (with the word to strike in between) like 'b' for bold, 'u' for underline, 'i' for italic etc

If this doesn't make sense I will email you.
