    Default Urine-soaked eggs a treat in China

    Urine-soaked eggs a treat in China

    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.

    whatever
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Is this another excuse to look at little boy parts? This is so outrageously gross and inhuman.
