Beijing Restaurant Serves Up Bloody Cotton Balls

Posted by w_thames_the_d on August 28, 2013


Wy is it that most of the horror stories about food and restaurants come from China? In this grisly tale we hear that a used and bloody cotton balls fell into a hot pot dinner and the Chinese employees did not even try to remove them nor throw out the stew.

Excerpt

Taiwan’s international image has recently been tarnished after pieces of dirty cotton were found in the broth of a Xiabu Xiabu hot pot branch in Beijing.

He Kuang-chi, founder of the Taiwanese hot pot chain, vowed to restore customer confidence and get to the bottom of the incident where pieces of cotton were found in a mutton hot pot served to a customer.

“That is very strange! It is very unlikely that there were objects in the mutton when we slice it. Even if there were, they should have been removed right away,” said He when questioned about the incident.

A female customer surnamed Li was enjoying her mutton hot pot on Aug. 23, when she chewed on something unfamiliar, according to local media reports.

“It did not feel right. It did not taste like meat. It felt like a piece of paper,” said Li.

Dating a Chinese Woman

Posted by w_thames_the_d on August 28, 2013


In order to understand what dating a Chinese woman is like, imagine the most invasive surgery possible, for example, a colonectomy. It is performed with no anesthesia, disinfectants and undertaken by the guy sitting on the bridge and strumming the banjo from the movie ‘ Deliverance’.

Now imagine the same procedure but done in front of a mass of screeching honey badgers who have not eaten in months.

That experience is heaven when compared to dating a woman from China.
