I have posted often about the pack journalism surrounding “scorpions on a stick” and how a lone freelancer named m-dawg dared to take the path less trodden and discovered an entirely new angle to this story – scorpions on a prawn. Well, it seems m-dawg has a kindred spirit. Another intrepid freelancer, MH, has done her own undercover investigation – away from the media masses at the bustling Wangfujing night market – and taken the story up a notch. Her discovery: scorpions in a bottle. Drink ‘em, eat ‘em, you’ll never forget ‘em. What’s next – scorpions on a plane?
