Why do Irishmen dislike the smell of a boiling sheep's head?
This Irishmen keeps complaining whenever I boil a sheep's head. He even got upset when he opened the pot and saw a sheep head's looking back at him. He says it's disgusting and grim. I just do not get it. What's the difference between eating a steak and eating a sheep's head? If you are going to eat animals, then why not eat the face too?Best Answer - Chosen by Asker
Unless you grew up with the dish, the smells from the disintegrating brain and eyes are nauseating. It's like offering a non-Scotsman Haggis or a non-Brit boiled pig's face. Some dishes are far too culturally focused to be eaten outside of their native population.

I grew up with it and I still think that it's disgusting.
