There is something bizarrely fascinating about watching someone poisoning themselves. Like a slow-motion train wreck. Or a dumpster fire. You just know that there will be a bad outcome but you just can’t stop watching the carnage. That’s what this video is like. Smart-alek Chinese health vlogger bites into a big old piece of something that looks like an elephants ear, only to begin whining and complaining about her mouth and throat burning. She thought she was biting into aloe vera but she was actually biting into something called Agave Americana (also called the centuryplant) – a plant that is cultivated to produce tequila but is essentially inedible.
Judging from the total absence of any acknowledgment of the ingestion from the vlogger or her people, I say they expected her to keep munching down on that mutant sized blade of grass. Until her tongue exploded.
What was it that created the surprise and spitting pain? Probably calcium oxalate crystals that pierced the young lady’s tongue and cheek and the back of her throat. Happily, aside from being a really bad kisser for a few days, there shouldn’t be any long-term problems for this health vlogger. Whatever that is.
