Before eating the brain, they pour a special sauce on the monkey's brain and stir it up with an eating utensil which causes the monkey to freak out. This dish supposedly costs a few grand to try out. I want to see a video of this.
There's a ton of stuff some Chinese person will eat that the rest of us mostly wouldn't. They have this thing called "birds nest." I've seen it as a soup. It's very expensive, even by Western standards. I've seen it appear on Chinese menus priced from 500RMB to 2300RMB. (1 USD = 6 RMB) It comes in red and white varieties. Essentially, it's bird spit. It tastes similar to tapioca and isn't hard to eat, it's a beautiful dish when presented to you, but it's weird. Given that it tastes like tapioca, and the whole fertility/aphrodisiac aspect is little more than hocus-pocus to me, I'll stick with tapioca.

Most of the time in China, I only eat pretty conventional ingredients. Occasionally, the presentation is unexpected, but aside from chou-doufu, not once in three years has the taste been bad. In fact, China is one place about which I can say that the food is outstandingly fresh and good tasting at all price points and levels of refinement. That's also so in India to be honest. I guess really that would have to be the case for any culture that's got 2000+ years of experience with feeding people. Times change; taste buds don't.

BTW, let's hope the monkey brains are inside the monkeys' heads.

The nastiest thing I've eating is probably little caesars pizza. That's about as far as I'm willing to go.

Please take this in the spirit in which it is offered.

When I was in nursery school and kinderegarten, we used to during the nap period play "show" (no "tell" because we were supposed to be asleep). I very distinctly a little girl named Cynthia showing us her "bits" and thinking it was the strangest thing I'd ever seen. I was curious, but it was still strange. Little did I know it would become the most expensive thing that, as a grown man, I would ever eat.

Yeah! You are absolutely right. Today's man can eat everything but how that one sound when a man is eating another man. Sounds weird. I have seen that kind of people too when I was in Kenya. I haven't thought of such an incident to happen in my life. Now also when I thought of that scene it shivers whole my body.
