Crazy Kiwis Sell Horse Semen At Wildfoods Festival

“Long renowned for pioneering extreme sports such as bungee-jumping and heli-skiing, New Zealanders are now pushing culinary boundaries by serving up shots of horse semen to iron-stomached food lovers.

The equine delicacy will be on the menu at the annual Wildfoods Festival in the South Island town of Hokitika next month, along with other gastronomic delights such as raw scorpions, chocolate-covered beetles and deep-fried grubs.

“The idea is you’ll have as much zizz as a stallion for a week afterwards,” Christchurch racehorse breeder Lindsay Kerslake, who came up with the semen surprise, told Fairfax Media.”


Kiwis are quite simply bonkers, they take everything to an extreme. You might find chocolate-covered ants for sale at a fair or festival in the States, but if anyone sold horse semen anywhere in America he would be closed down by the health department, and nobody would buy any anyway.

I might eat a chocolate-covered beetle or a deep-fried grubs, put chocolate on anything, or deep-fry it and I will eat it. But no red-blooded American would eat horse semen for a billion bucks.

If I ever travel to New Zealand, I won’t dine in any restaurant, heaven only knows what will be on the menu.
