    Chinese woman boiled man's head to cure daughter's psychiatric problems

    A Chinese woman boiled a man's head in a soup because she believed it would cure her daughter's psychiatric problems, a local newspaper reported on Tuesday.




    I have so many questions/comments on this one! :confused: What was the daughters diagnosis? Human head & duck soup? What else do you add? I like water chestnuts and bean sprouts, bok choy is always a nice addition to a Chinese dish. Does the head have to have hair on it or do you shave it first? :confused: Is the soup served with those thin crispy noodles? Cause I like those. :biggrin1: Seriously though, I could not eat anything that contained a human body part. :yuck:

    Talk about the treatment being worse than the disease! :yikes:

    Am I the only one that thinks maybe the mother was the one who was mentally ill and the daughter may have been fine? :confused:

    I know where the daughter inherited her mental illness from.

    The old joke goes that if it has legs and isn't a table or has wings and isn't a plane, a Chinaman will eat it.

    Well, proof positive that the daughter got her insanity from her parents can't be discounted now, can it?

    and NJQT, you got one helluva devilish sense of humor.

    The soup cures you, but 30 minutes later you are crazy again.

    If someone offers to give you head in China tell them you've already eaten.

    asians in general are a superstitious bunch. if they hear that something works, they will try it, even if it makes absolutely no sense to other people. in this case, that's what the chinese woman did.

    another example is my grandma. she's old, she's asian, she's superstitious. earlier this year she had an eye infection. she told me the only remedy to cure the infection was for someone to lick her eye. of course i didn't do it, and neither did anyone else, but it was something she heard that worked. and of course she got mad when i took her to the doctor's because "she is right and i am wrong and we're only wasting the doctor's time." her reasoning still makes no sense to me.

    Well that makes the missing cat that showed up in the Kung pao not seem so exotic. :eek: But seriously this reminds me of that scene in the Joy Luck Club where the daughter cuts a hunk out of her arm to put in her mother's soup to save her life. It gives me the chills....
