Don't touch that cell phone!

I'm now about half-way through the new book, That's Disgusting. I like it! In fact, it's not unlike a Big Book of Gross Stuff for adults.

The New York Times reviewed Disgusting this weekend, and the piece included this tidbit.

Or how about chicha, a popular drink in Ecuador, which a student [of the author's] watched as it was made? To prepare the thick beverage, a group of women put handfuls of corn flour in their mouths, chewed it until it “vaguely resembled the vomit of an infant,” spit it out into a collective milk jug and repeated the process until all the flour was gone. Then the women capped the jug and buried it in the yard to ferment. When a well-aged jug of chicha was unearthed and opened for the grossed-out young woman to taste, it took all her self-control not to gag on the warm, vinegary brew.
