We all know I like beer, and talking about beer, so I'll post this list of "Abnormal Ales," courtesy of the Phoenix New Times' food blog. They give a shout out to the Cave Creek Chili Beer, which my brother has had and proclaimed undrinkable. They also have a beer made with post-civet-defecation coffee beans (which I've only known as kopi luwak from my Indonesia days). Most of these beers seem borderline disgusting; I have a hard time trying to find the point.
The New York Times has an article about why we find certain animals ugly. Interesting stuff. (Note to self: Never compare a person's offspring to a blobfish.)
