Weird stuff you ate as a kid.

Leather straps.
Pencils.
Sandwiches containing just about everything in the cupboard (at once), including honey, golden syrup, salad dressing, tomato sauce...

Sandwiches with just dill pickle slices and American cheese. On white bread. The pickle slices would stick to the cheese and make white marks on it.

My family bought our bread from a local bakery that sold an equivalent to Wonder Bread - just simple sliced white bread, but more fresh and tastier than WB. I loved eating the crust first, then making tight little balls out of the remaining white part and chewing them.

A friend of mine showed me how to make a sugar sandwich by spreading butter, then sugar between two slices of bread, then smashing the two pieces flat before eating.

When I spent a year in Germany, one of my most common lunchtime sandwiches was Schmaltz. Although wikipedia indicates that this is made from chicken or goose fat, in our case it was just the cooled grease left over from frying bacon with a little salt sprinkled on top. Tasted good but probably not the healthiest sandwich.

I once drank some charcoal lighter fluid. Luckily my brother saw me do it and told mom. Still ended up in hospital with chemical pnuemonia. Seems to remember something about an oxygen tent, etc.

My brother saved my life more than once. I should be nicer to him. He used to eat Gainesburgers with the family dog. He got half, she got half.

I always wondered who came up with jarring fat to spread on bread. Schmaltz is some for real crap.

Mmmm...schmaltz and mashed potatoes. The chicken variety, of course, coming from a Jewish family.

"Schmaltz" is the name given to chicken fat. What you had has a name to. Its called a Lard sandwich. Its all good stuff really. What on earth do you people think butter or (DREAD) margarine is?
