hmm.. it's not unusual here (in fact it's popular), but I'm gonna say I ate durian. yes! that stinky fruit. That's enough to freak most people out on the internet, right?
I'm not too fond of the fruit but it tastes pretty decent to me, but I like durian ice cream better.
I ate one of those when I was in Thailand, and I have to say I didn't really like it. It didn't smell as horribly as I had expected too, even though it was still nasty.

I completely agree.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for it to improve the animal's lives. You can buy lots of organic food in the supermarkets here, and people often claim that it was produced in a more "animal friendly" way. However, these products are a lot more expensive than 'normal' products, and they often taste like garbage ( - though I'm not sure how garbage tastes.. ).
I love meat, and I will always love it. It's nutritious, tasty and - call me cruel - I have no moral issues with eating it whatsoever.
By the way, to all the veggies here: Is anything in your house made of wood? Think of how the animals lost their 'homes' ( trees ) so that you could have some furniture or whatever. Are any of your shoes made of leather? Think how many animals had to die for it.
Not eating meat doesn't make you a veggetarian, as you still kill animals for other things.
