Paul: Delicious Tiger Wine!


…the drink of champions.

This may look like a tacky tchochke but it’s actually a bottle of tiger wine, a beverage made out of the crushed up bones of real-live tigers. Apparently it’s illegal, but that doesn’t stop the Chinese from running tiger farms to produce it. It’s supposed to make you all virile and give you tiger strength. I looked for some on e-bay and found one 16 oz. bottle for $45. I don’t think it’s real though since it doesn’t come in a tiger shaped bottle, and it ships from California rather than China. This is what the seller claims:
“Excellent internal training wine used to augment the results from your training program. Traditionally used for increasing bone density and strength. This formula both regulates blood and chi, prevents stagnation, and prevents damage or latent injury from repeated impact. It also tonifies the body, strengthens bones, sinews and organs, increases energy for training and improves recovery from injury.”
You’d have to be a total douchebag to believe that, but I still wonder what the stuff tastes like. Is there alcohol in it? If anybody knows where I can get the real stuff let me know. I know it’s wrong, but not drinking it won’t bring any tigers back to life, and that tiger would totally eat you if he had the chance. Check out this PSA convincing chinese people to quit making wine out of tigers, I think it’s a little heavy-handed at the end.
