    Cock & Bull - Eating bull penis at Pho Nguyen Hue

    The first time I put a bull's cock in my mouth was about four years ago in Shanghai. It was just one of many strange meats in our exotic hot pot banquet that evening. They say you never forget your first, but my memory on this is foggy: I do remembe...

    You Never Know What You're Going to Get - Forrest Gump sucked, but damn it if the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurant aint good
