Wow. What an easy post for me. Just copy and paste yours. they'd be the same except for the meat pie. I'ved never been to an Outback!

And after googling I don't think I ever even seen a Durian fruit before.

You can find them in any oriental specialty store Stephen. looks like a large prickly burr.
STINKS to high heaven, but has a sweet, cooling taste.

Ate pretty near everything on the list with 4 or 5 exceptions. I would add:

Foie Gras (VERY un-p.c., but Lordy its the best thing you can put into your mouth and still swallow)

Crawfish - especially when boiled South Louisiana style

I've tried whale and Muktuk, I didn't care for either, Seal meat was too greasy, Gator is good, Beaver or Porcupine isn't bad either .

Alligator is weird. I had some cajun at the Taste of Chicago a few years ago.

For the love of G-d don't eat haggis. *shudder* There are some things that should never

And I'm suddenly hungry.... *dashes to pantry*

That last one is Cornish pasty. It's an empenada without any seasoning. There's a company about a mile north of me in Milwaukee that makes them.

If Moreton Bay Bugs are similar to our mudbugs (crawfish) I had some for lunch, along with octopus, squid, and mussels (at a Chinese buffet). Haggis is just sausage cut with oatmeal, I don't wee why anyone would object to it after a few wee drams of good peated malt.
