"… there is no such thing as nothing."

Is it true that some cultures eat live monkey brains?

Yeah, I thought that title would kinda’ get your attention.

It’s not “gratuitous,” of course. It’s old. And besides, our elite soldiers – Delta Force, Special Operations, SEAL Team, etc. – all are trained to eat unusual food, whatever is available to be eaten.

It’s definitely nothing new.

So, is it true that some cultures eat monkey brains?


Sure is.

It’s definitely NOT one of the weird & unusual foods you’ll ever see on the Food Network, National Geographic Channel or any other teevee show that shows us what foods folks in other parts of the world eat. You know what I’m referring to… stuff like balut and the Hundred Year Egg.

Supposing by their attire, I’d estimate this video/film was made in the late 60’s to mid-70’s.

Here’s the video.

And yes, if you have a queasy or weak stomach, you probably shouldn’t watch.
