Pic of the Day – Scorpion on a stick

8 Oct

Ugh. Insects like these are a common “delicacy” in many parts of China, including Beijing. Sorry to those who do like enjoy a bit of fried scorpion or sweetened spider (the large kind), but I think it gross.

Speaking of insects, a new show by “The Office” creator Ricky Gervais sends his friend Karl, who so happens to be a total idiot, to see the Seven Wonders of the world, including to China and the Great Wall. Watch the video below, which also contains a clip of Karl’s priceless reaction to people eating insects.

Hilarious!! Some Chinese people might find this particular episode slightly offensive, but he is a bit of an idiot after all. Other nationalities, don’t feel left out. Since Karl goes to all Seven Wonders, there will be 6 additional episodes of him being a moron and unwittingly insulting other cultures and heritages. I’ve watched clips of the India episode – funny stuff 🙂
