I think that may just vary by region. Living in Texas, I have never heard it called anything except poke salad. When you search for poke salad, squillions of hits show up. I also see poke salet, poke salat, poke sallit. Those three remind me of the German word for "salad." So it seems some used the German word for salad and some used the English word for salad. Six of one, half dozen of the other if that is the case. I didn't notice any other explanation.

Eyeballs. I don't like it when food looks back at me.

That sounded a lot like poke, which is a raw fish salad common in Hawaii. I remember seeing it super cheap in supermarkets - like $5/lb.

I would eat anything except things that are alive. I probably wouldn't eat most kinds of bugs too. Like maybe ants or crickets but anything filled with pus...no.

Escargot

I'm a Louisiana girl though and I do love my fried frog legs.

Seared tuna - to me half raw fish grosses me out!

The weirder it is, the more I want to try it!

But I draw the line at monkey brains, snake blood, and dog.

Foie gras.

ETA: Dog. You'd think that would be a no-brainer, but in other countries...

Blood, carmivores (dogs, snakes, etc) and genitals. You'd think it's obvious are sold quite a lot here....

I have, tho, tried cow's brains and tendons, and liked them... It all very much depends on the seasoning
