Urine-soaked eggs a treat in China
Digital Journal ^ | 3/30/12 | Owen Weldon

Posted on 04/04/2012 9:59:59 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

Dongyang - Egg vendors across the city of Dongyang are getting ready for the start of busy times. They are getting ready to cook up urine soaked eggs that local residents love.
The city is located in the coastal Zhejiang province. The urine soaked eggs are considered a unique springtime snack.

The snack is called “virgin boy eggs” and the key ingredient in them is boys’ urine, which is collected from primary school toilets, according to Reuters. Vendors prefer that the urine comes from kids below the age of 10.

There really is no explanation as to why the key ingredient has to be boys’ urine. It has been that way for centuries though.

According to the New York Daily News, the eggs are heated over a stove but not before they are soaked in the urine. The eggs’ shells are then taken off and then the eggs are placed back into more urine to soak. This continues while more urine is being poured. One batch of these eggs takes an entire day to make.

The eggs are favored by many of the local residents. Some of the residents even go out to collect the urine themselves so they can cook the snack in their own homes, according to Asia One.

Residents say that the delicacy actually decreases body heat as well as reinvigorates the body and promotes better blood circulation.

Eating urine/feces is normal in moslem countries.

Just ask Omoslem and the Wookie.

They also kill their baby daughters. These people are animals.

Why not urine soaked eggs to eat? Obama has been pissing on America and its food for 3 years, and people like it.

LOL. Is that what they are calling it these days.

And to think people were upset because there was MSG in their Chinese food. Wait till they hear about this.

For whatever reason, I feel like I’m understanding Kafka a whole lot more. Feh.

Weird is just weird. More and more, life is becoming a choice between you shall not, or you shouldn’t For some odd reason, that subtlety seems to be lost on a SIGNIFICANT portion of the global population.

I was about to ping you on this delicacy discovery, My, since our fondness for good old Filipino Baluts came to mind but you beat me here.

Don't let this put you off Chinese cuisine.....just dine with a translator to be safe.

I saw this video last night on Yahoo. An Italian chef making Pissed Off Eggs. The secret ingredient was red jalapeno peppers though. I don't think I want any Chinese Pissed On Eggs.

I can think of at least four things that are worse to put the eggs in, IMO. Not that I’d eat these things.

Bwahahahahaha! Let me just say, I LOVE my country, state, city, church, neighborhood, and family!

The more I read about the insanity out there in the world the more sure I am that conservative, religious, apple pie eating, red-blooded Americans are clearly the smartest, happiest people on the planet.

Everyone else can just shut the heck up and suck down some smelly yellow eggs! Yeah!

I heard from someone I trusted to tell me the truth, that
back in the “old days” if someone got a cold, they would take
urine...put it on bread...and the patient would eat it...
Also, many Indians(y’know Mumbai/bengali/bollywood, etc) would drink
their urine in the AM...The prime minister after Nehru(cannot
recall his name was known to do that....

All I can say to those folks are “Urine trouble, dude”
And finally, if yo’ really wanna get gross...
google, the following;;; “C. Difficile”, “resistant”, “fecal
transplantation”...or as known in the vernacular
the almighty “Sh*t shake”
