What is Cheese Without the Maggots?

[YouTube - Link]

Casu marzu is a Sardinian cheese with the singularity to be pre-digested by cheese flies' maggots.

Wait! it gets better : "Casu marzu is considered toxic when the maggots in the cheese have died. Because of this, only cheese in which the maggots are still alive is eaten" (from Wikipedia)

This documentary in German brings us closer to this old and tasty tradition.

It seems a little extreme, but we eat vomit and insects and mold all the time.
Honey - regurgitated bee nectar (it's enzymes in the bee's stomach that makes it into honey)
Cheese - Moldy milk
Mushrooms / beer - mold
Prawns/lobster - Basically sea insects

The POO thing is the extreme bit.
