I’m going to say a toss up between warm stale beer with a cigarette butt in it or a KFC Double Down (R.I.P.)

KFC is a big player here as I have to go with either their Popcorn Chicken or the treated lumber fencing stuff that we used to ‘chew’ so that we could spit like the big boys. I am pretty sure that was treated with arsenic.

Chinese desserts that are like bitter custard or rotten flan, I don’t know the name.

well, recently, I ate some of the breaded fried part off of some strangers’ popeye chicken… admittedly I was drunk (probably partially because) and hadn’t had dinner.
Come to think of it, I have never worried too heavily about germs so I have definitely eaten my fair share “three-second-rule” foods that have hit the floor.
Oh, and hostess twinkies… jesu christo! Who said that was food and allowed a child to eat of it?

@Tiffany – I would like to hear more about the “stranger” aspect of this chicken story.
I think the grossest thing I’ve ever had in my mouth is that nasty pink molding material they use at the orthodontist (to make molds of your teeth or to build a retainer). I still have a gag reflex just thinking about it.

@Beth- Yep. Strangers. No idea who they were, but for some reason (they thought I was really cool because I had a scooter jacket on… and I’m a sucker for people who like me even for all the wrong reasons), I even gave one girl my number and a promise to give her a ride on my scooter since she wants to buy one.
I think it was on one of my late night wanderings along Divis. What can you do? I’m friendly. And usually hungry.

Oh, I forgot to answer my own question. The reason I asked was because I had just returned from a dinner where somebody ordered chicken feet.
I tried to eat one. It looked exactly like toddler fingers, was blanched and chilled, and kind of clung to the bone in a way that made it so I just kind of sucked on the fingers until some skin or gristle would come off in my mouth.
The taste was kind of like the way the back of a mexican meat store smells.
Here is what they look like

@ Joe. Amazing description. I don’t want anything going in my mouth that tastes like the smell of a carniceria .. ever
// Aug 12, 2010 at 11:36 am
Yeah, I can’t really say it is something I will ever willingly repeat. I was discussing it to my friend over dinner and we are at a loss to think of something that could be worse in terms of: texture, temperature (chilled but not cold), taste, smell or looks. There are things that would gross me out harder, but I think nothing that qualifies less as good food.
I imagine deep fried or something they could be ok, but that is also true of everything else.

@Joe. Along those same lines and I’m sorry to Phil for bringing this up, but Duck Feet: http://urbanmixplate.honadvblogs.com/files/2009/04/duck-feet-edited.jpg
& for breakfast no less ::((
& they looked more like the chicken feet in Joe’s picture than the picture I found.

@N1^6, is there anything to be said for them in the positive direction? Did we just not eat them right or something?

@Jose. Yes, if a mouth full of tiny bones can be considered a positive direction.
The chicken feet at Ton Kiangs on Geary are decent, mostly because they are fried hard and hella saucy, but I still don’t order them on the regs.
