Olympians banned from deer penis.
During the 2008 Summer Olympics China banned deer penis from athletes’ diets because according to traditional Chinese medicine, deer penis is an effective remedy for athletic injuries.
I’ve noticed these days the animals all come to hang out while I’m in the middle of cooking dinner. I ran to the basement to get these pictures yesterday while 3 burners blazed away. We really should change our dinner time.
When I was growing up one of my favorite parts of our family vacations was cruising rural roads in northern Michigan looking at all the deer in the fields.
***late addition*** Deer don’t even have horns. Horns aren’t shed. They have antlers.
