Update: It looks like British mine worker Michael Mcfeat will not be facing jail time for a cheesy horse penis joke (see below). Various reports today indicate Mcfeat will instead be deported from Kyrgyzstan for comparing “chuchuk,” the nation’s most loved food to a horse’s penis. Now we don’t want to inflame the situation, but have you seen a “chuchuk” in all its glory? See the video below and you be the judge.
