Weirdest Fair & Festival Food Ever: Horse Semen
International observers of our summer fairs seem to agree on one thing: Americans eat some really weird... You fill in the blanks; they don't call it 'food.' Well, deep fried butter, deep fried Coke, and this summer's hottest, deep fried Kool Aid, stand back...
In the realm of weird eats and drinks, nothing beats what the Wellington, New Zealand Green Man Pub is serving this summer during the 14th annual Monteith's Beer & Wild Food Challenge.... Yes, it's horse semen, apple infused, and it tops a special dish of seared Asian duck and paua spring rolls. With a gourmet appetizer like that, you bet there's another name for the chaser: Hoihoi tatea.
The originator of the semen shots was Lindsay Kerslake, a race horse owner from Chistchurch, New Zealand after he heard that some folks were drinking bull semen.
"Horses are pure testosterone, Kerslake reportedly told the News. "They have hardly any cholesterol, so the idea is you knock it back and feel like a stallion yourself, (with) enough jizz as a stallion for a week afterwords."
Strangely enough, men have been reluctant to drink the stuff, but it has been a big hit with women! Green Man Pup chef, Jason Varley, reported that after a few women imbibed the horse semen shots, "They were going to go home and get their husbands to eat grass."
Women did not seem to be concerned about growing additional facial and body hair, however.
Other foods served at the fair include "fried scorpions, ram's testicles, bull penis, pig gut kebabs with fresh eel slime sauce, and wasp larvae ice cream."
Just import the stuff to the U.S. and we'll deep fry it!
