Does your Pepsi lack pep? Is your Coke not the real thing? India's Hindu nationalist movement apparently has the answer: a new soft drink made from cow urine.
The bovine brew is in the final stages of development by the Cow Protection Department of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), India's biggest and oldest Hindu nationalist group, according to the man who makes it.
"The drink is the latest attempt by the RSS – which was founded in 1925 and now claims eight million members – to cleanse India of foreign influence and promote its ideology of Hindutva, or Hindu-ness.

His facility currently consists of 72 collection units in which 1 animal/stall is kept for a period of approximately 4 days. During that time, each animal's daily urine excretion is collected and then placed in 2 ounce bottles and labeled. Each bottle is marked to indicate whether it contains buck or doe urine. The Fatal Attractor is then shipped to retailers or to individual mail order customers.
