Published May 21, 2013 by tapasmi

Ever think you were good at gross stuff? Well, lets see if you are any match for these….

DID YOU KNOW? In Boudin, an expensive wedding feast would probably be camel, stuffed with sheep, stuffed with chickens, stuffed with fish. :p

The original recipie of baked beans include bear fat and maple syrup. 😯 .

In Indonesia, deep fried monkey toes are eaten by sucking the meat straight of the bone. Ew.

In Sweden and Norway, roast reindeer is a national dish.

Orungutan lips used to be a delicacy in Ancient Vietnam. Ugh.

Soft ice-cream of the type sold in ice cream vans is given it’s slithery smoothness by seaweed extract.

In France, calf eyes are soaked in water, boiled and finally deep fried in breadcrumbs.

Ewww– I nearly puked when I heard these. But yet hungry for more? (The facts, not the food mentioned) Look for the book named 1001 horrible facts by Anne Rooney. If you cant find it, post to me on this article or on the Talk Page. But I doubt it- these facts are TOTALLY GROOOOOOSSSS!!!

Tigers are getting endangered. They are illegaly being killed for their bones, teeth and skin. Lets see some facts that we should know..

1. A hundred years ago more than 100,000 tigers were present on Earth. Today, there is as few as 3,200.

2. The tigers are an important part of the food chain.

3. Tigers are amazing creatures, and their secrets are hidden deep within. With the help of tigers, we may not know it but it affects the weather, the balance in nature in uncountable ways.

We may not be able to save the tigers, but we can still show our care towards them. Make a placard, write a slogan about Save The Tiger. Do research on tigers and realise how important they are to us. Make a group with your friends and discuss the topic. Make new ideas on how to spread the word. Talk to your teacher about the matter and see what can be done. Maybe, with your help, if you can support the idea of Save The Tiger, many people will follow your advice and do their best to save the tiger. Avoid products made of tiger skin, bones, teeth, etc. Keep your hand on your heart, close your eyes and say:
