India braced for cow urine coke
Who fancies getting their lips around a can of the new cola that’s being developed in India? Go on, you know you want to – one of the chief ingredients is cow’s urine. How can it not be delicious?
Admittedly, cows are sacred to Hindus – slaughtering them is illegal in most of India so their waste products take on a more, say, magical quality than elsewhere.
The Cow Protection Department of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) are the boffins behind the drink and their spokesman said, "Don't worry, it won't smell like urine and will be tasty too."
The drink, which will be known as "gau jal", or "cow water" will be competing against an array of other local brands, many of which are believed to contain high levels of pesticides. Mercifully, there are no plans for the drink to be exported to the UK.
