    Baby mice wine - would you drink this?

    There are pictures at the link, check them out too. Just not after or during eating.
    So this seems to be a drink in China and some parts of Korea, it is supposed to heal some diseases, would you drink it to find out if it's true?

    http://www.junch.com/baby-mice-wine/

    "Baby what, wine, eh?

    Yes indeedy, baby mice wine. It’s wine with, well, baby mice in it.

    Found in China, this deliciousness is believed to be a cure-all health tonic. It is believed it can cure anything from asthma to liver disease.

    Baby mice wine isn’t just baby mouse flavoured, or have one baby mouse inside. Oh no, it has a whole pile of baby mice, only a few days old, floating around at the bottom of the bottle. Nasty huh? Well it gets worse – the baby mice are plucked from their mother’s teet, placed in the bottle alive and drowned. Perhaps that improves the flavour?


    One thing I haven’t clarified is whether the mice in baby mice wine are eaten/drunk along with the wine, or just filtered out. Surely if they are the source of the ‘goodness’, they should be crunched upon and ingested along with the wine.


    I’m sure many of us have eaten the worm at the bottom of a tequila bottle but how many of us could stomach a mouth full of baby mice?


    Baby Mice Wine Update: The well travelled folk who comment on articles here at Junch have informed us that they have seen this fine delicacy in china and once the wine is consumed you are supposed to indeed eat the baby mice.

    There are other similar products to baby mice wine including cobra wine and others, but perhaps we should keep them for another article."

    My grandparents used to make wine with snakes, spiders (or maybe it was some other equally disgusting dead stuff) etc in it. But baby mice sounds far more horrid :S

    When I was a small kid..I used own baby mice or fancy mice as they call them. So no. I normally wouldn't eat anything from an animal that you wouldn't find at a local fast food place. Mice Wine? and Snake Stuff..No thanks..

    Yeah, it doesn't help when it comes to stuff like that.

    Plus, on top of being largely junk-medicine, its just a gross and deliberately debauched concept, in my opinion. I feel like, as humans, our ethics (note: I did not say morality) should have moved passed finding it acceptable to cause suffering to any animals in their infantile state. To me, something just feels aesthetically displeasing about the prospect of causing suffering to the 'young', regardless of species.
    Something particular not-cool about snuffing out a life when its just begun, just for personal luxury. I think that's pretty disgusting. Just like that 'delicacy' of eating foetal ducks. *shudder*

    I'm a vegetarian anyway, so the prospect of killing anything just cos its tasty is not my bag, but eating the young just sounds like something some douche-bag giant in a kids' fairy tail would do. =I

    just kidding ofcoarse, vegetarians are good for the climate, since they don't produce cowfarts! But I like my meat, humans are omnivores and predatores, its in our nature, it made us intelligent/sentient beings

    Hehe! I do keep my fingers crossed hoping that they never find that plants 'feel' pain or whatever.

    Well, I'm not completely innocent on that front. I still consume dairy, despite being aware of a large amount of mistreatment of the cows in production and the fact that every male dairy calf born is pretty much auto-veal. But, my diet is too lacking and generally bad to give it up. Maybe when soy stuff gets better and the range of faux-dairy products is better I can go full vegan. Simply cannot give up milk chocolate before then! xD In the meantime though, I have no illusions about being much more eco-friendly than the omni crowd.

    Well, I'm not 100% sure, but I think sience has discovered that plants do feel some sort of pain, just a different kind of pain.
    Tree's are just as aware of there enviroment as you, but in there own, slow growing way

    Alternative medicine, also known as the placebo effect. If it worked it would be called medicine.

    Pseudo-medicines are a great way to dupe uninformed and/or gullible people out of lots of money, sometimes with the added bonus of killing off a couple of animals for no reason.

    Yeah, it's still very vague. As is the definition of pain, though. Like, when do we draw the line between an instinctive retraction away from danger and genuine emotional and physical suffering? Insects apparently don't have a brain, but some kind of central nervous system, so in theory, they are presumably not sentient in any sense. Maybe sentience and some form of awareness is required before 'pain' can be labelled as suffering? (That's what I'm hoping really.)

    I would not drink it but unfortunately most of my family probably would. Asians and everything.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Whatever floats their boat I suppose, not sure I can even stomach the idea of snakes spiders or mice in my wine though :3
