全球首家“恶心食品博物馆”将开业 Disgusting Food Museum to open in Sweden
The world's first museum(博物馆) exhibit dedicated to foods(食物) that may turn people's stomach(胃口) is set to open(开业) in the Swedish city of Malmo at the end of October.
The Disgusting Food Museum (DFM), which features 80 of the world's "most disgusting foods", will showcase some of the world's most notoriously stomach churning foods including the maggot-infected cheese(活蛆奶酪) from Italy, Three Penis Wine(三鞭酒) from China and the stinky fruit durian(榴莲) from Thailand.
Upon visiting the exhibit, museum goers will receive a special entry ticket – a vomit bag(呕吐袋).
The exhibits will be kept in glass flasks to preserve(保留) their smell(气味), and half of the food will be replaced(替换) every day. Visitors are encouraged to taste(品尝) free samples(样品) of fermented shark meat and even participate in group competitions to try out dishes of "escalating disgust."
"I want people to question what they find disgusting(恶心) and realize that disgust is always in the eye of the beholder,”said Samuel West, curator of the exhibition who also presents himself as the "chief disgustologist."
