Rice Wine a la Endangered Species – Eco-Fail

Submitted by on Saturday, 27 February 2010No Comment

2_mugs84I am soon to go to Hanoi and was reading about the city in preparation. Why is rice wine so popular in Hanoi you might ask? And why do mostly men drink it? Because the wisdom is that it is acts as a natural Viagra. There is widespread practice of infusing the rice wine with endangered animal parts to further enhance virility. Like what endagered species? Tiger penises and dead cobras, for example. Eco-Fail! (Anybody thought of giving out Viagra for free to protect endangered species?)
