Wacky Cure

Eating Live Frogs, Rats "Cures Tummy Upsets"

Or so says Jiang Musheng, a 66-year-old resident of southeast China, who suffered from frequent abdominal pains and coughing until he began to eat the live creatures, as many as twenty mice in one day.

Must be a case of a non-existent gag reflex. Me, I'd rather take a Zantac.

Ewwwwwww! This is making my skin crawl just thinking about it.

That is Hitonious with a Capital H!!!!
The guy doesn't even cook the darn things first.
It would seem that mice would wriggle whilst being chomped and would possibly scratch or bite.
I wonder if he eats the tails????

Brooke said...

What is up with the Chinese eating the foulest, most un-palateable things on the planet?


Kathy said...

Well ebuc, all I can say is,
I'll eat my hat!

etchen: I agree. It's gross.

j.d.: Why would he stop at the tails? This man doesn't strike me as a finicky eater.

brooke: I suspect the extreme poverty that is prevalent in parts of China is one cause.

Poorly educated folks are also more likely to believe crap like this.

The working class in Peru drop a skinned frog into a blender & drink it. Go figure.

kathy: I think I'd rather eat your hat than live critters.
