And I thought Red Bull was bad enough.
Or, as Jonah Spangenthal-Lee noted, “It can’t be worse than Mountain Dew“.
A hardline Hindu organisation, known for its opposition to “corrupting” Western food imports, is planning to launch a new soft drink made from cow’s urine, often seen as sacred in parts of India.
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), or National Volunteer Corps, said the bovine beverage is undergoing laboratory tests for the next 2 to 3 months but did not give a specific date for its commercial release.
The flavour is not yet known, but the RSS said the liquid produced by Hinduism’s revered holy cows is being mixed with products such as aloe vera and gooseberry to fight diseases such as diabetes and cancer.
Matthias Williams reports for Reuters that one Om Prakash, head of RSS’ Cow Protection Department, explained that, “Cow urine offers a cure for around 70 to 80 incurable diseases like diabetes. All are curable by cow urine.”
And speaking of piss, why do I keep thinking of BE? Surely, the new, international Budweiser is on the case.
