Hentai is the japanese word for weird (at least that’s what somebody explained to me today, in spite of my best efforts to convince him it was a term for animated tentacle porn). Sure enough, there are many weird things about Japan, not least of all the kinds of beverages they drink. Someone made a nice list here and here. Please find a personal favorite of mine below:
From Kid’s Wine to Kid Swine… Ahh, the things women will do to stay young and beautiful for us!Thank you ladies, really… but there comes a point where bizarre beauty potions intended to make you luscious, just make us nauseous – and Nihon Shokuten’s eerie series of placenta products are a prime example.
Made with swine placenta, the drink carries the automotive-sounding name of “Placenta 400000” – perhaps it’s made from the ground & pressed extract of 400,000 placentas? Nihon Shokuten’s not telling, but their revolting beverage should come pre-packaged with mints because there’s nothing worse than placenta-breath in the morning.
Didn’t something about Tom Cruise and his baby’s placenta make the rounds a while back?
