All jokes aside, no one eats more penis on television than Andrew Zimmern. From cobra to yak penis, Zimmern is the all-time animal wang-devouring king of modern television (using the "find" tool to search "penis" on Bizarre Foods Wikipedia is quite an experience).

After years of watching Zimmern drink blood, devour placenta and -- in a recent episode -- drink snake bile, we decree that there is no TV personality with more nards. Except Bear Grylls.

When it comes to eating the nasty bits of animals and drinking bodily fluids, Grylls is the only comparison. So, naturally, we got artist Kyle Confehr to illustrate the similarities and differences between the two, Venn-Diagram style, based on some basic data, like Zimmern eats the inside of a sheep, and Grylls sleeps inside sheep. Check out the breakdown after the jump.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
