Not sure what beef straws are, but I’m too worried to bing it at work. Either option my brain can come up with seems a little NSFW-ish.

Looks like a Slim Jim with a hole drilled in the middle. Also looks like I could get my little brother to buy and try them since they're being sold in Des Moines, IA, where he lives. I could try to get a field report if desired.

Is it as off-putting as the bone luge?

@5, that's...ridiculous. I swear to god, the whole world is turning into "Portlandia". How can you parody something that's already a parody?

@6 -- Well, although rumor has it that the practice originated in Portland I'm pretty sure it must have originally made an appearance in some Valhalla-bound viking drinking ballad or other. Srsly.

I don't know, but I damn well intend to find out.
