Otters Oddities

Mmmm....that's a bowl of tasty looking......what was that? Aw hell no! Never eating it again!

Guess what that is. It's not mayonnaise. It's not sour cream. It's not whipped cream. *sigh* No, it's not Noxzema.

It's yogurt. Plain old yogurt.

And after I'm done with it, you'll never touch it again.

This is a quick oddity. Because, I'm tired and going to bed. Plus, it's yogurt. There's not much you can say about it. It's kind of sour, but it also goes well with different fruits. You can freeze it and have an acceptable ice cream substitute. (nope. I lied. It's not acceptable at all). It's a healthy snack, or meal.

But what is it?

It's milk that has been fermented by bacteria. Now, that's not so bad. After all, cheese is basically the same thing. Cheese just uses different bacterias. And molds. But that's an oddity for another day.

Today we're talking yogurt.

One of the primary bacterias that is used is lactobacillus acidophilus. And that's why you'll never eat yogurt again.

Don't get it? Well, lactobacillus acidophilus isn't only found in yogurt. It's also part of the vaginal microbiota.

Yeah, you read that right. And, the use of the word vaginal doesn't have a different meaning. It means what you think.

The bacteria used to ferment yogurt is found ini the vagina.

In fact, some homeopathic cures for yeast infections recommend inserting yogurt into the vagina. And they also suggest daily yogurt to promote optimal vaginal health.

I'm sorry. This just brings a question to my mind. Just how, exactly, did they come up with yogurt in the first place? Do the research. No one knows. They speculate that, maybe, the bacterium spontaneously appeared on plants and that milk-bearing animals ate them, and then produced yogurt.

I don't buy it. I could speculate on the origin, but I'd probably be arrested for lewd and lascivious behavior. And if I wrote them here, I'd be accuse of disseminating smut.

But, use your imaginations.

Yogurt. Uh-uh. Not gonna eat it no more.
