A British man living here in the Thai eastern seaboard town of Pattaya, was taken violently ill early this morning after gorging himself stupid on the very strange Thai delicacy of eggs-marinated-for-three-months-in-horse-piss.
The eggs, which are normal chicken eggs, are placed in a glass jar or other such container, in a quantity of horse urine so that the physical capabilities and stamina of the animal may be enjoyed by anyone who subsequently eats them.
The shell of the eggs turns pink, the yolk turns black, and the white of the egg turns a very dodgy-looking transluscent brown.
Moys Kenwood, 46, originally from Hull, but for the last four years of his miserable existence, forced to live in the West Midlands hellhole of Dudley, decided to try out the eggs, which are said, amongst some Thai people, to be something of an aphrodisiac.
After twelve of the eggs, however, Kenwood was not convinced, and after consuming another 16, started to feel distinctly unwell. He was immediately rushed out into the street - a favoured location amongst pukers - and filled the tired drains with a disgusting sludge, which then made its way down to the seaside.
The Pattaya coastguard has been alerted.
