Jadz, I am sorry to have to inform you of an error in this list.

"The Pennsylvania dish "City Chicken" is actually made of minced rabbit brains"

This is incorrect. I grew up in Western Pennsylvania and can tell you for a fact that "city chicken" is not made of minced rabbit brains but rather is a nugget-like concoction comprised of squirrel balls and cat feces.

gee, I hope both of you were kidding. If not, do you mean that you really believed the very first "fact"?
