TEASER: Eating Rotten Shark in Iceland (WARNING: GROSS!!!)

Just in time for Halloween, this video is sure to gross you out and give you a good laugh!

Kæstur hákarl aka "Rotten Shark" is a traditional Icelandic delicacy that dates back to the time of the vikings. Since vegetation is sparse in Iceland, locals have had to get "creative" with where and how they find food. Greenland Sharks are actually toxic so they need to be processed before eating.

Chef Anthony Bourdain described it as "the single worst, most disgusting and terrible tasting thing" he has ever eaten. WOULD YOU TRY IT?!
