Is Balut Appropriate for a First Date?
Anyhoo, last night's episode featured a creepy-looking guy who asked bizarre questions and had shifty eyes straight out of a Mack Sennett reel. It seemed he finally came to his senses when he met a chick, although she turned out to be a priss. She had a problem with the two of them strolling through a market at New York's Grand Central Station for their date, but the woman had a freak-out when the guy took her out to dinner. The opening course: a shooter of uni, and balut, the duck embroyo enjoyed by Filipinos, gourmands, and retched at by almost everyone else.
It's rare we post questions to readers at SaFII, but this is a community of people who'll defend balut's honor--and how often can you write that line? So, gentle readers: what do YOU think?
