New Zealanders: Now Drinking Horse Semen

A South Island food festival is serving shots of equine seminal fluid at a food fair.

“The idea is you’ll have as much zizz as a stallion for a week afterwards,” the inventor of the semen shot told Fairfax media.

You know that guy you knew in college who was really nice and loved Thoreau and fixing bikes but when he got a few drinks in him he became a total chandelier-swinging animal?

Everyone from New Zealand is that guy.

Yes, that is a sweeping cultural stereotype. I apologize. And I’m kidding. But for conversation’s sake, can we just admit that there is a tendency, among Kiwis, to go from shy and sweet to Yosemite Sam in the space of three beers?

The only reason I bring it up at all is this: They’re now taking shots of horse semen, and that worries me. Oh and they chase that shot with an energy drink.
