in which there in an omnivorous meme

The food out here, it's miserable. I'm suddenly obsessed with what everyone else is eating. Many thanks to Cheap Like Me, who I lifted this from.

Here’s what I want you to do:

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Mark any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment here at http://www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results.
