Apparently I've memed!

And no it's not a bodily function!
I saw this on the Tiny Kitchen Cooking Blog and thought it was a fun little thing to try out. Although, I've never heard the term "meme" before.
It's probably the slowest week at work right now since my boss, ie my dad, is on vacation so this little game helped pass about, ohhh 20-30 minutes since I had to look up a lot of things to figure out what the heck they were. Anyway, it really makes me realize how much more there is out there to learn about and eat! Copy and paste it yourself, have fun :)

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating. (I can't figure out to do this so instead I made them all caps)
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at linking to your results
5) added by other memers: italicize ones you'd like to try
