Apparently, drinking camel urine is a thing…
Yes. Camel piss. The urine of a camel.
We aren’t sure if we should call this a beverage but it is too good to miss. We’re here to tell you about any liquids that go down your throat. Nah, get your mmind outta the gutter, I don’t mean THAT. You know where you were thinking.
So, yes, as I was saying,Aaparently drinking camel Urine is a thing. Who knew? I certainly didn’t but I’ve been reliably informed that it’s a fad that some Nigerians are trying out.
I’m sure you have the same look on your face as I had when first heard of it. That ‘Eww! Hell nah!’ look. I was shocked. I AM shocked. I thought I had heard it all but clearly I’m still a leaner. Go figure.
Nigerians actually travel to the Middle East, and partake in the drinking of camel Urine when they get there. This is beyond weird and a bit disturbing. Actually. Not a bit. It’s very disturbing.
Wait. Who drinks camel Urine? Why are you even drinking it in the first place? Who even thought: “hey, you know what would be great? Let’s sip on this camel’s urine,”. Like, I’m seriously confused. How is this a thing?
Are there no wines in those places? Abi they don’t sell beer there ni? Oh right. They likely don’t. Still, there’s water and fruit juice, I reckon.
Anyway, I was also informed that some people believe camel urine is the new penicillin because of an extract from the Hadith. They believe it cures everything from common colds, to cancer. I wouldn’t know. I’ve never drank it.
Can anyone else confirm if this is true?
Of course the World Health Organisation is on the opposite of this debate though. They believe it’s a cause of MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) and have warned people from imbibing the stuff. But the people that believe in the efficacy of camel piss no dey hear go-come. They still drink the thing. WHO warning be damnned.
So have you had a glass of camel urine before? How did it taste? Was it yummy? Can anyone volunteer to drink it and let us know how it goes? Thanks for being a sport. We’d love picture and video evidence. I would have but I’m still busy drinking beer.
