Default Craziest thing you have put in a mash or boil

I am a lazy brewing that doesnt bother much with throwing things in primary/secondary, so whatever I can get to carry over in a mash or a boil I love. With that, Im getting bored with average recipes, want something crazy to make, what its the weirdest thing you have put in a boil or mash?

This is going to turn out badly.

Half melted black licorice candy. It was terrible. All the bitterness with none of the sweetness. And it was stagnant water green.

There was a guy on here talking about throwing an entire pumpkin pie into the boil.

Bog myrtle, dried elderberries, fresh ground multi colored peppercorns, and blood orange zest. Not really weird but also not commonly used ingredients.

Cilantro for a cilantro-lime Pale Ale. It was actually pretty good! I had to dry-cilantro it also to get more flavor and aroma.

Pumpkin purée. While not too crazy, it was still bizarre to me seeing thick pumpkin goop in my mash.

Not something I have brewed, but a friend told me about this beer he got to try a year or two back.

"Right Brain Brewery: Mangalitsa Pig Porter
Vegetarians, beware: This porter does, indeed, count swine as an ingredient. The Michigan brewery includes four cold-smoked Mangalitsa pig heads—brains removed, mind you—and bags of bones in each batch of porter. The result is slightly smoky and curiously, compulsively drinkable."

I just did this and thought the same thing.
I had no idea what sort of mess it would be or what would happen in the bucket.

I don't know what the primary bucket is going to look like when the beer comes out.
