“American Renaissance” is not my idea of a relaxing read, and neither is it a regular at my inbox, but while researching the previous post on the late, unlamented, Jorg Haider, I came across this titbit further down the page:
…..further north in Kano, [Nigeria] there are fewer Christians and less violence, but health authorities have a different problem. The latest drug craze is to get high on lizard dung, either by smoking or drinking it. “Since I discovered the use of lizard dung I have found peace,” says 28-year-old Ado Kabir of Kano. “I no longer have to spend much money on drugs since I discovered the efficacy of lizard excrement,” he adds. According to Mr. Kabir, there are many ways to take the drug. One of the most popular is to mix it with water and blue laundry detergent, and drink it. “It produces a strong effect similar to the effect of drinking strong whisky to excess on a hot day,” says the articulate Mr. Kabir. The droppings can be dried and then smoked with tobacco, marijuana, or heroin. The effect, says, Mr. Kabir, is “exhilarating.””
It sounds great fun, though perhaps the blue laundry detergent adds a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’?
Sadly Mr. Kabir fails to clarify his favorite brand – of either laundry detergent, or lizard.
