This Danish Beer Is Made With A Very Unexpected Human Ingredient

By Mustafa Gatollari

I had a friend recently confess to me that they accidentally ate whale while they were in Norway.

Now, my first reaction was to be horrified and grossed out, but then I thought, well, I eat cows and chickens, and even though whales seem infinitely more majestic than say, a factory-farm chicken that lived a terrible life, it still was a life that felt similar emotions to any other animal or human, so what's the difference?

Despite this moral quandary, I still couldn't bring myself to say, "Hey, eating a whale is exactly like eating a chicken nugget, it's all good." I couldn't help but be a little weirded out by the thought of eating whale.
