Need a quick pick-me-up? Skip the Red Bull; how about a shot of stallion semen instead?

A horse breeder in New Zealand will be offering flavored samples of the stuff -- culled with the use of a fake horse vagina -- at the Wildfoods Festival in Hokitika, New Zealand in March. "You'll have as much zizz as a stallion for a week afterwards," Lindsay Kerslake, the man behind the product, told the Australian. But then he went on to say that he's never actually tried the stuff, which he's serving straight (gag) and, for the more faint-hearted, doctored up with flavors like cherry and licorice.

He's sure, though, that science will back him up: "We're pretty confident tests will explain how and why it makes you feel so good, but that's still being worked on."

Billed as the most outrageous food experience in New Zealand, the Wildfoods Festival has also featured such, uh, delicacies as bull penis and wasp larvae ice cream. Which all sound better than a shot of this stuff.

"Think of it like a milkshake," the breeder urged. Which just means that we'll never think of a milkshake the same again.
