Remember Burger Kings Black Halloween Bun? Lots of people did, when they got a scary surprise after eating them....Emerald .Green Poop! How about the Spanish villages, where fountains turned to blood? Turned out that Spain's bloodbaths were teeming with the microscopic freshwater algae Haematococcus pluvialis, which produce a red pigment when they're stressed. ....not some maniacal killer on the loose. Or maybe that man in India, who sported 30-foot-long (9 meters) talons, which have not been trimmed in 62 years.... Shridhar Chillal earned a Guinness World Record, for them. Pity the poor residents of southwest Australia , who due to unusual weather conditions were treated to showers of . Millions of tiny spiders in a region of New South Wales, covering the land and people, with their sticky webs. A unique kind of hotel,opening in Japan called The Henn-na Hotel, which translates to "strange hotel," staffed almost entirely by robots. Reception attendants, waiters, cleaning staff and cloakroom attendants are all non human, but all walking, talking bots, to accommodate your every need. Then there was the poor 12.8-foot-long (3.9 m) python who swallowed a porcupine whole. ...not so unusual...unless you happen to fall off a ledge, in the middle of your meal, and the sudden impact with the ground below, causes the undigested 'spiky entree' spikes to have pierced the python's digestive tract.... finishing his meal,in no uncertain manner. Roll on 2016, and another batch of 'Strange but True! source:livescience.com

Don't mess with my poop. It's one of my joys. Green? I'd have been worried.

@TheHorse You obviously don't go for all the healthy attributes Beetroot has going for it, like lowering blood pressure,cholesterol etc..not to mention Antioxidants, that come with the intense colouring

I just saw a truly awful photo- a mountain lion that had big teeth growing out of its forehead. Gross. Not sure what was going on with that Idaho kitty.

Believe it or not, I didn't read nor hear of a single one of these throughout the year, not even the black buns. I wonder whether they were sold in all the franchises around the country or not? Did they ever determine what ingredients provided the emerald coloring? I may have heard about the snake swallowing the porcupine, but someone told it a lot differently than that.

I remember that side effect of the black hamburger, I thought that if someone is crazy enough to eat something like this, they deserve a punishment.

Reading this discussion and so many weird happenings made me feel uneasy. Sorry that those happened to someone. I think we do not have the Burger Kings Black Halloween Bun here, and I won't want to try it. I won't want to stay in the hotel where all the staff are robots. I still prefer being with human beings more.
