Car Soup. [Apr. 25th, 2008|07:30 am]
[mood |exhaustedexhausted]

Real "birds nest soup" is made from bird spit - the gooey, stringy saliva that Chinese swiftlets use to attach their nests to the walls of caves. The hardened saliva is prized for it's medicinal and aphrodisiac properties. The license fee to harvest one cave? $100,000. The soup is a simple chicken broth, with one good dollop of bird spit in it.


And a 1939-1940 Chevy commercial.

Yes, but birds don't do that. Birds fertilize their ova before they produce the shell. Fertilization in reptiles, birds, and mammals is internal, and precedes the formation of a shell in those groups with eggshells.
