Gah!! That's tripe. Beef or pork stomach most likely. Yuck!

I don't know, but it's pretty clearly nature's way of saying don't eat this.

oh dear pupps, has your eczema come out again?

Could be honeycomb tripe, but I've also seen coral that looks like that.

My first guess was going to be coral.

I thought, like, sea anemone or something seafoody. *whips mudpuppie with tattered leather restraints from a Victorian insane asylum*

If it's intestinal it ain't human, that all I can say. I vote for coral. (What's the prize, do we get to keep it?)

Oh that's where it is, I've been looking for that.

It's tripe. I recognize it almost instantly since I worked one lonely summer at a grocery store frequented by Mexican shoppers. Also, I assume those are the entry/exit areas on lower right of the picture and in top/center behind the honeycomb shaped area.

Anyway, Is this a game? The answer is right there

I thought it would be some kind of sea-beast too, but the same picture turns up as the first result in a google image search for ‘tripe.’ I only ate the stuff once myself, when I inadvertently opted to try the Trippa Alla Romana at an Italian cafeteria.

I am *not* clicking that link.

Looks like brain coral.

Ah, I only just got the joke! only took me four hours! Anyway, I didn’t enjoy the Trippa alla Romana: the taste wasn’t so bad, but the texture was very off-puttingly squishy.

It's unsettling is what it is.

Hey mullacc, how did you figure out the flickr page for that image? Several times I've seen a flickr image and wanted to know where it came from, but couldn't figure out how to find it. (A couple times I got lucky entering the image id into google, but there must be a more systematic way.)

URL for static pic:

From the .jpg name I took the photo id which comes before the underscore, so "48455851" in this case. Then I place that into the URL I get when looking at another pictures "Available Sizes" link.

The URL I get when I click on the "All Sizes" link to one of my own pictures:

I remove the "325823301" and substitute the photo ID from the picture I'm looking for.


From there you just click on the "Back to flickr page" link on the top right.

Sweet, thanks.

Hah, I was just coming to ask how to do that. I've wondered for a long time.

That just made looking at tripe before breakfast this morning almost worthwhile.

who eats this stuff?
posted by youngergirl44 18 January | 12:45
I don't care if it's really tripe. I'm going to go with coral so I don't puke.

Coral coral coral!

Youngergirl44, not as many people eat this as they used to. Mostly elderly people buy it. We don't even carry it, usually, unless someone asks. Which someone did, today. So we'll be getting some tomorrow. Oh, joy.
