世界上最可怕的6种食物(6)

2008-07-16 14:14译索网

 
  Humans are like goats. We'll eat any damned thing. Just ask the people who make PowerBars.
  In fact, you'll find foods in this world that don't even seem possible. Not just that they could exist, but that people would actually stick this stuff in their mouths without a gun to their head.
  We've found six dishes that seemed to have sprung from Satan's own cookbook.
  人类就像山羊。什么要命的东西都来者不拒,大吃特吃。去问问制造“能量棒”的人就行。
  事实上,你会发现这世上有些食物甚至根本就不可能存在。不仅仅是说它们的存在不可思议,而是说人们居然会把这种要命的玩意塞进嘴里,压根就没人用枪顶着他们的脑门让他们去吃。
  我们找到了六种美味佳肴,它们似乎起源于魔王撒旦的食谱。

  #1.Balut
  #1:巴鲁特

  

  From: The Philippines
  产自菲律宾。

  What the hell is it?
  Behold, for our journey of horror reaches its destination. Balut are duck eggs that have been incubated until the fetus is all feathery and beaky, and then boiled alive. The bones give the eggs a uniquely crunchy texture.
  They are enjoyed in Cambodia, Philippines and the fifth and seventh levels of hell. They are typically sold by street vendors at night, out of buckets of warm sand. You can spot the vendors because of their glowing red eyes, and the faint, otherworldly sound of children screaming.

  这究竟是啥玩意?
  快瞧啊,因为我们的恐怖之旅来到了它的目的地。巴鲁特是孵化到一半的鸭蛋,蛋里的小鸭子刚刚长出羽毛和嘴巴,却被活生生煮熟。鸭骨头让这种蛋吃上去带有独特的松脆质地。
  柬埔寨、菲律宾、地狱第五和第七层的人非常喜欢吃这种东西。晚上,摊贩们将鸭蛋放在热沙桶中,拿出来作为特色菜贩卖。你能一眼认出这些摊贩,因为他们那红热的眼睛,以及婴儿们发出的来自来世的微弱尖叫。

  Wait, it gets worse ……
  …… Because you're never going to look at an egg the same way. Tell yourself that every time you crack open an egg from now on you won't be half expecting a leathery wad of bird to come flopping out into the skillet.
  Yes, balut is upsetting on about a half-dozen levels. Sure, all meat eaters know on some level that the delicious chop on your plate used to belong to something cute and fluffy, which gambolled in the sun during the brief spring of its life. Most of the time, it' perfectly possible not to give a shit. But, when you're biting into something that hasn't even had a chance to see its mother' face …… well, it' different.

  慢着,还有更可怕的……
  ……因为你从来不会以这种方式注视一只鸭蛋。那就告诉自己,从现在开始,每当你敲开一个蛋,你可能会看见一只羽翼未丰的小鸟蹦进煮锅里。
  对,巴鲁特会让人感受到六、七种层次上的不安。当然,在某些层次上,所有享用肉食的人都会明白,盘子上摆着的美味肉食曾经是某种毛茸茸的可爱小东西,在它短暂的青春中会在阳光底下嬉戏雀跃。大多数时候,你很可能压根就不在乎。但是,当你的牙齿咬进这东西,想到这小可怜连自己妈妈的脸都没看到过时……啊,那就大不相同了。

  Danger of this turning up in America:
  Actually, marketed properly, these eggs could be a damn good motivator. When you've looked death in the face at breakfast time, what the hell else can the day throw at you?

  这种危险已经开始出现在美国:
  事实上,如果推销地好,这些蛋会成为非常好的动力来源。当你每天早餐看到的都是那脸上的死亡表情时,那他妈的这一天会拿什么回报你?
