A village in Vietnam is producing bottles of wine containing cobra snakes and scorpions.

The wines are being shipped worldwide and are said to be a natural remedy used to treat a number of conditions. The poison from the snakes and scorpions is rendered inactive by the drink and won't harm anyone who dares to try some.

"Forget eating the worm after downing your tequila - with these bottles of unusual wine produced in Vietnam, a tasty tipple comes with a far more potent bite."

Bumthology- Holy shnikes that's a crapload of snakes and lizards. 0_o I think I would like to try it just once. And it would be neat to have something like that as a dinner table centerpiece.

Same here except I don't even drink wine.It would be cool just to have one of those laying around.The cobra biting another snakes and a scorpions tail looks like interesting artwork to me.
