Does your Pepsi lack pep? Is your Coke not the real thing? India's Hindu nationalist movement apparently has the answer: a new soft drink made from cow urine.

The bovine brew is in the final stages of development by the Cow Protection Department of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), India's biggest and oldest Hindu nationalist group, according to the man who makes it.

Om Prakash, the head of the department, said the drink " called "gau jal", or "cow water" " in Sanskrit was undergoing laboratory tests and would be launched "very soon, maybe by the end of this year".

"Don't worry, it won't smell like urine and will be tasty too," he told The Times from his headquarters in Hardwar, one of four holy cities on the River Ganges. "Its USP will be that it's going to be very healthy. It won't be like carbonated drinks and would be devoid of any toxins."

I only posted "ew" and the Hamsters objected and told me that it needed to be a longer post. So I copied and pasted.

Indians have a strange affinity for drinking urine. I'm not that surprised that cow urine might be seen as remedy.

@hamburger,
I went to the beach at Dures on the Adriatic Sea - it was beautiful and it was wonderful. I was swimming and all of a sudden to the right of me I saw floating doody. It took me a while to get over it.

@mismi,
So, ah, just how short is your body?



Next time it does that, by the way, just slap the space bar a few times. A character is a character.

@Ceili,
During the Italian earthquake an elderly couple survived for a week or two by drinking their own urine. Urine does contain many nutrients as the body excrete everything it does not immediately need like vitamins. Urine for that reason has medicinal value.
