June 26, 2010: Fo-Ti Root

Fo-Ti, also called Chinese Knotweed, Climbing Knotweed, Flowery Knotweed, He-Shou-Wu, Kashuu, etc, has been used by Chinese herbalists for centuries.



Quote:
Chung Yun, a famous Chinese herbalist who reportedly lived to be 256 years old, used Fo-Ti on a daily basis. This herb is thought to have been responsible for both his long life and his legendary sexual prowess, (he was said to have had 24 wives).

I think they might have excavated the ground into that shape and let the roots grow into it.



spudcon  Saturday Jun 26 07:28 PM

Like the square watermelons.

Ed Zachary!



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday Jun 26 08:15 PM

No, being humanesque shape is very common for that plant root.

It's China we're talking about Bruce. Chi-na.



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Jun 27 12:17 AM

Exactly, they've been using this root forever, and don't need tricks to promote it. The western press/net picked up on this, because they thought it looked like Homer Simpson.

Quote:
Healer Ming Huang who unearthed the lookalike root in Youxian, southern China, explained: “This root often emerges from the ground in the shape of a man. “But this is the first time we’ve seen one quite like this who had a proper face and features.”

For the past 20 years I've been looking at the free images that others post here for me. I've never felt compelled to say anything until now, but SHAME ON YOU!

This poor, defenseless root was growing happily in the ground, and some cruel Chinaman came along, grabbed its hair, and yanked it up to the surface, where, without any more water, it slowly dried up and died. And for what? So that you people could have a good laugh for a few seconds because it looks like the root is sporting a ding-dong? At least the good people in China can grind up the root to make some Soylent Brown, but what all of you are doing is needless and cruel.

You people make me sick. I'm off now to my daily Commie-meeting/Oprah-watching event and I'm never coming back here again!

Oh great. You use your one post to perpetuate the myth that all lurkers and Commies and furthermore all Commies are rude.

I'm sick of this place, I'm leaving. And I'm taking my pussy with me.


Gravdigr  Sunday Jun 27 02:31 PM

Put. The. Pussy. Down. And slowly back away.



SPUCK  Monday Jun 28 06:06 AM

Down on what?

At first glance, I thought it said fo-ti robot. I thought to my self, hmmm, I wonder what a fo-ti robot is. fo-ti sounds asian, and those wacky japanese are always making new robots, so of course i want to see the fo-ti robot. But then I clicked on it, and that aint no robot. It's an antropomorphic root with a dong, which is almost like a robot, but not exactly.
