If plastics, or pesticides, or antidespressants have got you down, you can still make art with it, drink it or cook with it. It's been a strange week for semen.

Semen is not only nutritious, but it also has a wonderful texture and amazing cooking properties. Like fine wine and cheeses, the taste of semen is complex and dynamic. Semen is inexpensive to produce and is commonly available in many, if not most, homes and restaurants. Despite all of these positive qualities, semen remains neglected as a food.


I'm dedicating this post to Astro Zombie.

It's is said that the masturbating whale
Will drown thousands of seamen without fail,
And the monstrous kraken,
When he starts a-whacking,
Showers seamen into the air like hail.

I think because many guys don't think semen is a food, but some kind of pre-wash treatment for dirty socks.

Man, tell me about it!

Also, anybody know how to get it out of snooker table felt?

Also, if you look at the Brad Pitt pic on the "drink it" (Telegraph) link...well, looks like he's making his own little contribution to the cause. And apparently, John Sergeant approves.

A lot of semen have been getting jacked off the coast of Somalia lately.

In unrelated news, I just ordered a cook book, and will be trying out a whole bunch of new recipes as soon as it comes in the mail. You're all invited over for dinner!

I can't find the clip of Arrested Development in which Tobias says it, but he has a line about "hot seamen." As a consolation prize, here's a Tobias tribute reel some Youtuber made.

Y'know, and I've said this before, there are some days when you walk away from the computer and say, "Well, I've seen it all!"

Then you log back in and...

I'm seeing visions of a Betty Crocker tie-in; a little anthropomorphic glove mascot shilling new Creamy Beef Strokinoff Handjacker Helper in front of the backdrop of a working-class family eating a meal of creamy reconstituted noodles, protein chunks and 'special sauce' from a skillet.

Bleargh.

Sloppy seconds?

If you click the link on the book, you can actually look through the contents. Here is the first recipe:

Strawberry Splasherita:
1 cup frozen sliced strawberries
1/2 cup good quality tequila
1 tablespoon fresh semen
2 cups crushed ice

Combine all ingredients except semen in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a sugar-rimmed glass. Float the semen over the drink. It will coagulate and adds a splendid finishing touch to this popular drink.

The next one is even better, I'll just quote a little bit of it: Chilled fresh semen, the more the better

Jokes section:
1) That's what she said!
2) Metafilter: Chilled fresh semen, the more the better

2leftfeet, same here until I realized it wasn't about making plastics, antidepressents and pesticides out of semen.

Afroblanco, not just the link, metafilter took down the entire Endocrine Today site. And the "Sloppy Seconds" link is cool. It was the only link that I had no idea how old it was. I was sent the link yesterday. The rest of the post pretty much just came together.

Seemed like no matter what I read yesterday I'd come across a site about semen.

The thing that most of you are missing is that you are talking about semen.

I've said before that I will not be writing a creative recycling FPPs on things to do with used undies or bondage gear. I think we can add "body fluids and matter" to the "will not be encouraging you to craft with" list.
