My daughter has a project she is working on at school and told me she needed some supplies. They are taking shoeboxes and turning them into habitats for different animals, she chose to do the habitat of a leopard. We looked at pictures online and then walked around the house and tried to gather items that would look “natural.” I sent her outside to find a large rock that the leopard could lay on. She came back in the house with a brick, a standard size red, common, everyday brick. I explained that there are no bricks in the Savanna and she argued that we just needed to paint it white. I then tried to explain that the shape of the brick was too perfect, that it wouldn’t look natural even if it were white but there is no reasoning with a nine-year-old, they know EVERYTHING. Hopefully she will see the light and decide not to take the brick to school.
Placenta – It’s what’s for Dinner
Over the past several months we’ve discussed some unusual food and beverage choices including spotted dick and urine. But I read an article today that I just have to tell you about. There’s a new trend, people are eating placenta. Some people believe that it increases milk production in new mothers and is a mood enhancer, others believe that a healthy human body already has the nutrients it needs and that it provides no benefit. Regardless, people are eating placenta. You can buy it in a pill form OR you can cook and prepare your own. There are tons of placenta recipes online and I will warn you that most contain the most disgusting pictures you will ever see.
Have any of you ever eaten placenta? Would you? People in the articles say it tastes like liver and some say it tastes like beef jerky. Wouldn’t that make you a cannibal of sorts if you ate it? Eeeewwww, I just can’t
imagine whipping up a batch of placenta, it would be the meal from hell.
I’ve heard of rubbing a placenta cream on your face to reduce wrinkles and I could do that, in fact I’ve actually used (purchased) hair conditioning products containing animal placentas but I could never throw a
human placenta in the crock pot and eat it. Not even with barbeque sauce or covered in chocolate, no way, no how.
