Scariest-looking dish! What's yours?

I've came across lots of rather scary-looking dishes during my frequent business travels, some of which were actually quite palateable once you get across to eating them.
But *this* particular dish from a Arabic restaurant in Kuala Lumpur really grossed me out - a whole braised goat's head which had me nearly jumping out of my skin! I didn't know how it tasted, since I couldn't bring myself to try it this time.
Anyone else would like to share what's the most scary-looking dish they'd ever seen?
At a holiday dinner, the Rabbi's wife set a whole lamb's head in front of him to eat. I could have lived without seeing that dish!
A Brazilian colleague couldn't get over this and took a photo - a whole roast chicken in a Chinese restaurant, served with its head as well.
I was in Brazil for work several years ago, and the vendors we were meeting with took us to a traditional churrascaria for dinner - the kind where the servers come to each table with long skewers of different kinds of meat. I was inhaling several different cuts of beef when they brought over a skewer that looked like it was strung with meatballs. Nope, they were chicken hearts. I passed.
