So, there I was, moseying along in the meat section of my local supermarket yesterday, and basically flipped out when I saw this:
Now, you tell me what YOU think it is upon first glance??? Hmmmmmm?
I couldn't believe it!! I HAD to take a closer look! I pick it up, turn it around in my hands, examining it closely, and I swear, I saw some really familiar landmarks!!
On the package, it's labeled "conejo". I'm thinking, okay, that's similar to cojones, but it's not just the cojones we're looking at here!
So, I'm standing there awestruck and wondering what animal this big, gigantic, frozen conejo came from! And by the way, this thing is HUGE! And they managed to package and freeze it while still completely erect!!! OMG!!!!
After a few exclamations (out loud) over how crazy it is to find these huge frozen penises in the meat section, I finish my shopping and get on out of there. Still a bit in shock, though! I mean, my neighborhood is very international, with people representing every continent there is, and a myriad of cultures.... so, the culinary offerings here do tend to be extremely varied and exotic. But, WOW!, I've never even seen THIS in the meat section before!!
Anyway, after I get home I figure, let me Google 'conejo' and see what poor animal they took this thing off of, and Jesus Christ, in what manner do they prepare and serve it!?? omg!
Well, guess what? Turns out that 'conejo' means RABBIT.
Yes. Rabbit. I must now admit to having a seriously dumb moment back there at the supermarket!!! LOL!!! I don't have them often, but DAMN, that was a good one!!! LMAO! It was only rabbit, dammit! Not a big, giant, frozen animal penis like I thought! Duhhhhhhhhh! ;)
I seriously need to brush up on my Spanish!!!
