I read once that intelligence is acquired. So the crew of Unsavory Adventures headed out to Evansville Indiana for a Fried Brain Sandwich. Now, many of you have written me asking if I was afraid of getting Mad Cow Disease. I would never eat a cow's brain, don't be ridiculous. These sandwiches are made of pork brains, breaded and fried. The cook at the Hilltop Inn has been making these sandwiches for 18 years, and has never tried one.....

Can you tell the difference between real southern ribs and fake processed meat pressed into the shape of a rib?
In this episode I travel with the Unsavory Adventures camera crew to Birmingham Alabama on a rib taste testing trip. Along the way we encountered a "rib sandwich" at a fast food chain. Oddly enough, the "meat" under the bun was shaped like a small rack of ribs, but it contained no bones. When we cut into the "meat", the inside resembled a grey sponge of indeterminable origin. Since these fake sandwiches were being sold nationwide, one member of our crew suggested we film a taste test at a southern rib festival to see if anyone could identify the fake ribs. So off we headed to St Petersburg for their annual RibFest (which included Rick Springfield and the Doobie Brothers as entertainers) and set up our taste test table outside the main gate.
Check out the video, the results of the taste test may surprise you.
Oh, and don't be fooled by the shot of me eating one of the fake ribs - I didn't swallow. - Barry
Please leave a comment - the crew and I would love to hear where you feel we should go next!

Ever go out for a plate full of Buffalo Wings?
In this episode I head out in search of the truth behind these popular treats. Mesmerized by pretty waitresses in tight shirts, diners across the country are ordering these wings without ever asking questions about what happens to the animals left behind. Be warned: after watching this video, you may never eat another Buffalo Wing.
Morgan, the waitress at Boofalos restaurant was gracious enough to help us with our discoveries. After the video was produced, however, we were informed that she no longer works at Boofalos.
And our thanks to Buffy the buffalo, who truly did his best in attempting to fly for our video.. - Barry
