1. The 19th-Century Version Of The Turducken
If you think that the idea of mixing three different birds together for one over-stuffed meal is gross, just wait until you get a load of the  “Rôti Sans Pareil” - or for those of us that can't speak French, the Roast Without Equal.

Invented by Alexandre Balthazar Laurent Grimod de la Reynière, the world’s first restaurant critic, the recipe called to stuff 17 different birds into each other to create one massive super-bird dish. Examples included putting a warbler into a lark, all the way up to a turkey. That's one critic that should get his judging privileges revoked.
