Things That Make You Go…

Horse.
Hmmm…

Look we know the folks down under are a lot like us Yanks…but, not exactly the same.  For example, down in New Zealand they have a wild food contest recently discovered by the T.A.H. Worldwide Media Research Department under the watchful eye (and we are hoping eye only) of T.A.H. Pop Culture Editor Young A.T.

Evidently…a chef in Wellington (no doubt suffering from an earthquake addled brain) has concocted a cocktail (pun intended) that includes – drum roll, please – horse semen.
Oh no, we are not making this up.

In fact, here’s the story straight from the Dominion Post by way of Gawker in that truth is stranger than fiction sort of way:

Apple-infused horse semen shots might not be an obvious chaser to spring rolls, but they are causing a stir at the Green Man Pub where they are being served.

The shots are part of the central Wellington pub's entry in the nationwide 14th annual Monteith's Beer & Wild Food Challenge.

While the rest of the meal of seared Asian duck and pork and paua spring rolls sounds delicious - it is the Hoihoi tatea, or horse semen drink which is on everyone's minds.

Jason Varley.
Green Man Pub chef, Jason Varley, said the drink was proving most popular with women.

"Ladies thought it was great  a couple were going to go home and get their husbands to eat grass," he said.
But Mr Varley added that some woman had their concerns.

"A couple of them were worried they might bear children with long faces," he joked.

Men have not been so keen on the concoction.
