We've covered a lot of weird food here on Neatorama, but Weird Worm has got a post about strange foods that are not only weird - they can also be deadly. Take, for instance, the Jamaican ackee fruit above:
The ackee is highly nutritious as well as incredibly poisonous, a sick joke played by a cruel and unloving god. The only section of the fruit that is safe for consumption is the white innards, and only after it is ripe. Everything else is brimming with the exotic alkaloid toxins, resulting in a combination of seizures, vomiting and fatal hypoglycemia known as Jamaican Vomiting Sickness. If you’re envisioning this properly then you are now terrified of Jamaicans and their vomit.
