Next Month, People in New Zealand Will Drink Horse Semen
Lately, it's become fashionable in some circles to brag of one's fearless consumption of bugs, grubs, and pretty much anything else that can be scraped off of a forest floor. And if your circle happens to be in New Zealand, you will soon have the option of chasing it all down with a shot of horse semen.
In a move sure to appeal to the select segment of the population who count themselves as fans of Equus, Bizarre Foods With Andrew Zimmern, and Beavis and Butt-Head, the annual Wildfoods Festival in the South Island town of Hokitika will be serving equine ejaculate alongside more traditional menu items like raw scorpions and deep-fried grubs.
The shots are the brainchild of an area racehorse breeder, who is working on a selection of flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. He promises, just like that bad boyfriend you used to have, that the product will taste just like a milkshake.
