I Thought This Tiger Steak Had A Certain Wang To It
— Ace

Not good:

Want to become strong and potent like a tiger? Then why not try our special tiger meat dish? This was the question posed to customers at a restaurant in Hailin, Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.

The establishment was later fined and ordered to close for inspection, after a local newspaper revealed its recommendation of the outlawed dish.

...

The restaurant was offering a dish of stir-fried tiger meat with hot peppers for 800 yuan (US$9 , according to reports.

...


The tiger-meat story published in a local newspaper has created shock waves.

Police subsequently raided the restaurant and confiscated the so-called tiger meat.

After inspection, the owner, Ma Shikun, confessed that the so-called tiger meat was actually donkey meat that had been dressed with tiger urine, to give the dish a "special" flavour.

Yeahp. It tasted like chicken.

Thanks to cutaway.

1 Dude, where have you been?

BTW, it looks like there's a problem with your tags. They work, but the whole piece lights up when you hit the link.

3 tiger piss and donkey meat, what could be better?

Why tiger piss and donkey meat with a carefully chosen wine that complements the tiger piss marinade, of course!

No, now the text in the box turns into a hyperlink.

5 That's what it was doing when I made the first comment. It's not doing it now.

Ace: I know it's Friday, but at least wait until after 5 to start drunk blogging.

7 Wasn't this in the movie "The Freshman"? Marlon Brando has a deal where he serves up endangered species to those willing to pay. Asks the kid to pick up a komoto dragon at the airport to bring to the restaurant. He has all kinds of doubts. Turns out they serve chicken, beef and pork. The animals go to a zoo.

11 You know, I met these old guys, friends of my dad. When tehy were kids they lived down near Tiger Stadiumin Detroit (this story is set in the 1930's-1940's). The kids would kill pigeons and sell them to the Chinese restaurants to be used as 'squab'.

Honest. That is the story I was told. I wasn't drinking then but I am now. And I quote:

"Wassa matta? You no like meow-meow?"

12 Squab is a young pidgeon, so I'm not sure what you're getting at. Not sure I'd want to eat a Detroit flying rat, but a country pidgeon tastes pretty good.

13 All the pidgeons I've ever seen had lice the size of Florida palmetto bugs - monstrous frigging lice.

I think I'd snack on a can of worms first...

14 Let me get this straight.

The one time a Chinese restaurant admits to serving cat, it turns out not to be?

Bizarro-world.
