When it comes to food, I try to stick to my “don’t knock it until you try it” philosophy…but when it comes to Chinese “virgin eggs,” I think I’ll make an exception. Here’s why.

These eggs are boiled in the urine of young boys. In one Chinese city, this dish is considered a delicacy.

For hundreds of years, the people of Dongyang have enjoyed their favorite springtime snack, tong zi dan…which roughly translates to “boy egg.”

The cooking process involves boiling the eggs in urine, cracking them, and then placing them back into the urine pot to absorb as much flavor as possible.

How do they collect the pee? Glad you asked! Buckets are set outside of elementary school classrooms and boys are encouraged to discharge into them between classes. The buckets are then collected by local restaurants.

The locals claim that tong zi dan is beneficial to one’s health, but doctors aren’t so sure. There’s a reason why our bodies get rid of urine, after all.

Sylvester Mwendwa and Elijah Kimani have agreed to enter into a polyandry marriage contract with Joyce Wambui. Polyandry is a form of polygamy whereby a woman takes two or more husbands at the same time.

Wambui who is in her late twenties, is a widow and mother to twins. She had affairs with both men for four years. When the two men found out, the woman refused to leave either of them, leading to a contractual agreement between the three.

Abdhallah Abdulrahman, a local police officer attempted to make peace between the trio.

“I heard people fighting and went to check, but I was surprised to see two men fighting over a woman who is said to be a widow and a mother of twins. We discussed everything, and they agreed that even if the woman were to fall pregnant they will raise the child as their own since they have been taking care of the woman’s children together.”

Kenya’s NTV station published an excerpt of the contract. It states: “We have agreed that from today we will not threaten or have jealous feelings because of our wife, who says she’s not ready to let go of any of us. Each one will respect the day set aside for him. We agree to love each other and live peacefully. No one has forced us to make this agreement.”

Mdendwa told BBC the agreement was a logical conclusion as he and Kimani had been at odds over Wambui.

“It could have been very dangerous if the other man would have come to her house and caught me,” he said. “So our agreement is good as it sets boundaries and helps us keep peace. She is like the central referee. She can say whether she wants me or my colleague.”

ORLANDO, Florida – A 22-year-old man suspected of burglarizing homes in Florida was killed and partially eaten by an 11-foot (3.4 meters) alligator after he waded into a lake, apparently to avoid detection by law enforcement officers pursuing him, police said on Tuesday.

An autopsy on the man, Matthew Riggins of Palm Bay, determined that he drowned in November after an apparent alligator attack. A necropsy on the alligator revealed parts of the man’s body in the reptile’s stomach, according to a report released this week by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s deputies chased Riggins and another suspect with dogs and a helicopter on Nov. 13 after residents in the Barefoot Bay community reported two men walking behind houses, authorities said.

No suspects were caught that night. Riggins was reported missing by his family when he did not return home, according to the sheriff’s report. His body was found 10 days later floating in a lake, with an aggressive gator standing guard, sheriff’s Major Tod Goodyear said.

“I believe he was hiding,” Goodyear said of how Riggins ended up in the lake. “With the dogs out there, it’s not a bad idea to go into the water.”

Goodyear said Riggins had told his girlfriend by telephone that he would be burglarizing homes the evening of Nov. 13 and later told her he was being chased by deputies. Reuters
