Hey, anybody care for a nice warm beer? Me neither. [swoosh]
I’ve told you about my favorite things to taste and now it’s time to tell you about my least favorite things to taste. I don’t have to eat them now during this video, do I?
[music plays] Anything from the pig. Anything at all. I don’t like it. I just — ooh, it grosses me out. Bacon, ham, a pork roast. Any of that stuff, man. No, thank you. Broccoli. I mean, when I was a kid my parents made me eat that stuff but I swore I never would again. Asparagus just stinks so much. It smells up the whole house. And I’ve tasted it a couple times — no, no, no… please, no. Wax beans is one that my father made me eat one time and I remember I sat at the table till must have been 10:00 at night and I finally ate them ice cold. Dad showed me, didn’t he? [laughs] [music plays]
Cauliflower is another one. Just nasty. Just thinking about it turns my stomach a little bit. Pepper. Right, from the shaker. You know, I put salt on everything but I don’t use pepper. I just don’t like the way it tastes. It just doesn’t do anything for me. Nuts of any kind. Walnuts, peanuts, pistachios, cashews… any of that stuff, man. Ew, just the texture of it and just the taste of it all of it. Caraway seeds. The thing that makes rye bread taste the way it does. Not for me. I’ll tell you what. You want to ruin a sandwich quick? Put it on rye bread. Cheese of any kind. No, thank you. Not for me. You know, just the smell and the taste of it together. And that texture too. It’s just strange in my mouth. I don’t want it. There’s this fruit that’s very popular in China. It’s called Durian. And I’ve had it twice in my life and that it two times too many. You know what this tastes like? It tastes like what you think a baby’s diaper smells like. It is just disgusting. [music plays]
Coffee… is something I don’t drink. A lot of people of think it’s very strange. But my mother when I was about 7 or 8 years old I said to her, “Hey, ma… can I try this?” And she goes, “Sure, kid. Knock yourself out.” And that’s the last time I ever had it. I just don’t like it. I can’t drink it. It just makes me gag. You know what tastes horrible? It’s this liquor from Iceland. It’s called Opal. Oh my god, it is dis — I can’t even begin to tell you what it tastes like. Although by about the 4th or 5th shot it’s fine. You don’t even notice. [laughs] Sambuca is sort of in that same family, right. It’s that black licorice kind of thing. I never got it. I don’t like it. Jagermeister is one of those too. You know, it’s very popular and stuff, but I don’t know… I just never did shots of that stuff. Even black Good and Plenties. Right? Anything with that flavor in it. I don’t know what it is but I can’t stand that flavor. There’s even beers I don’t like. You know, I always say if it’s for free it’s for me, but one of those dark heavy beers. Oh no, thank you. Or a Porter or a stout. Ah, man. No. Milk is one I never liked. You know, as a kid you’re supposed to drink milk and everything. My parents always tried to make me do it, but I just never got into it. I could never dig the taste of it. Not even in my cereal, you know. I’d rather have it dry than put milk in it. [laugh] Coconut. Oh my god, no. Thank you. It’s funny, I like the smell of coconut but I just can’t stand the taste of it. It’s awful. That’s how you ruin a birthday cake. [laughs] [music plays] [sings] The taste, the feel of cotton… the fabric of our lives… BEN: The taste?
TOMMY: I know… I just wanted to sing like Aaron Neville, that’s all.
