Summary: “What’s the weirdest thing you’ve eaten?”

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Gwen had suggested another team bonding game.

“What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? I’ve tried octopus. It was… rubbery.”

“I’ve had Rocky Mountain Oysters,” admitted Owen.

“What’s odd about oysters?” Gwen wondered.

“They’re not actual oysters, they’re deep fried bull testicles.”

“Oh. YUK!”

Owen sniggered.


“Roasted tarantula. It was good, quite crispy. What about you, Ianto?”

“Alligator. Tastes like chicken. Oh, and Witchetty Grubs.”

Looking disgusted, Gwen turned to Jack.

“I’m almost afraid to ask!”

“Dinosaur. No idea what kind though, they were pretty much pre-cooked after the asteroid hit.”

Ianto rolled his eyes.

“Should’ve guessed you’d win!”

The End


I wanted Gwen's idea of strange food to be comparatively tame so she would be more shockeed by everyone else.

I really thought someone else would have used Jack's comment from Fragments about dinosaurs ("Had 'em for breakfast"), but no one did so I had to do it myself.

I was never adventurous with food and these days my stomach protests at even blsnd food, so no, never had anything strange. Unless you include nasturtium leaves, 'cause I love them. I think you can eat the flowers too, but I haven't tried those, they just seem too insubstantial. Clover flowers are okay but I only sucked them.
