<<< Yep, saw a display of rabbit, pig's testicles and pig uteri in a  
market called Rosita's, in Lake Park, Florida, which is in the West Palm
Beach area. It was quite startling to this suburban middle class  
white girl,
I didn't realize people ate those parts of the animal. Was in a
converstation with an ex-Nave friend of mine, and he gently informed  
me that
most places in the world they eat the whole animal. Always happy to  
something new...>>>

Yes, I remember seeing a whole pig, partially sliced open in a  
butcher shop in Mexico. Wouldn't have been so bad, except for all the  
flies swarming around the unrefrigerated? carcass.

Well, if you are willing to learn more similar new things...
