Picture of the day: Walnut made of cement
Mr. Li bought 2.5 kilos of walnut from a street vendor in Zhengzhou city, Henan province on February 15. After he got home and cracked open some of them, he found that inside walnuts were broken concrete chunks. In order to reap more profit, vendors cracked open walnuts that have a thin husk, took out the nutmeat, put concrete nuggets inside and seal the husk with glue. To prevent the concrete nugget from knocking on the husk and making noises, the counterfeiters wrapped it with paper. (From NetEase)
The walnut has very concrete content.
The nutmeat was taken out. A concrete nugget was put inside.
In contrast to a real walnut (on the right), a “concrete walnut” has visible white glue around the crack.
Concrete nuggets were wrapped in paper before being put into husks.

The existence of such an innovative idea can only explain that labor is cheap, jobs are scanty, people’s quality of character is low…If there is just a little more chance to make clean money, who would make such a great effort to do this?

So talented. I would feel unjust and wronged in your shoe if this does not receive some scientific advancement award. Our country has filled those gaps in the world’s food industry. Oh yeah!

This once again proves that our food industry is the No. 1 in the world. But there is still much room for the cost of using cement to drop. Should find a cheaper replacement before we can permanently reign in the world.

F**k. Salute the vendors who produced “concrete walnuts.” To finish walnuts like that one by one, the brazen face, the exquisite craftsmanship and the extraordinary patience and perseverance it entails are unimaginable!!
