Urine Eggs

OK...I was not sure if this should go in the "Food" forum, the "Health & Fitness" forum or the "this is just fucking weird" forum.

As the title says...Eggs...hard boiled eggs...done in the urine of virgin Chinese boys...(commence puking)

The latter, TC. The latter. I've had those eggs. Sorry to burst your bubble, but no, they are not soaked in the urine of pre-pubescents. I guess some folk'll believe pretty much ANYTHING. Explains Fox News, I suppose.

So, I guess these would be Pee Eggs rather than Tea Eggs.


I hope we don't see these in 7-Eleven here on the island.
