I actually saw a video diary from about 8 years ago wherein a young woman turned her skin orange by eating a ton of carrots.

This is just ignorant and sad.

Hey look, it's a twofer!
Although really, it would probably be better suited for RSTDT.

First of all, Esau was the son of ISAAC. Crappy sources, crappy statement.

Yes, a few years ago I saw a friend (Black) eating white clay. She offered me some. Not in any way remarkable. But after all, Kaolin? Kao-Pectate? Yes, it's used in digestive remedies!

And yes, most certainly, Jacob and Esau were BROTHERS!

"What a load of bullshit."
Well, fundies are kept in the dark (by their pastors/Fux News etc), just like mushrooms.
And such is their diet.

"This is why Blacks in the southern USA are sometimes observed spooning and eating red clay out of river banks. They are trying to get back to the original colour."
- OK, that's the most absurd sentence I've read all day. And I just spent the last hour reading comments under Yahoo articles on Election Day, so that's really saying something.

WMD Kitty nailed it. Mineral deficiency. Happens when one is unable to afford basic nutrients. Living in the southern USA I've yet to see folks eating clay but I'd like to stuff red clay down Frank's throat. Who is this moron?

Again, Frank Chalk didn't write this. He just made a post attacking creationism, resulting in a creationist coming over to his blog and posting this drivel.

No, Pica is a disorder where you desire to eat things that aren't food. There is a tradition in the South, particularly among blacks, but also poor whites, of eating clay. It is cultural rather than a disorder. It's especially common in pregnant women, though it is rare today.

LMAO, that made my day.

If that ever does happen, which I highly doubt, it's because they're starving and forced to eat dirt because so-called Christian charity isn't doing shit to actually put food in their bellies and clothing on their backs.

I had hoped this would be a Poe, until I clicked over to the actual blog and read this poster's running commentary -- Big Load O'Fail.
Yes, this a definite 2-fer!
To follow up, yes, there is an eating disorder, pica, where the afflicted person eats stuff (could be dirt, or whatever else) that is not intended to be eaten. I've never seen dirt-eating by anybody over the age of about 7, though!

First line thoughts: ok, I remember Esau, I wonder what he's getting to
Second Line thoughts: hmm, is he going to say red-haired people are evil or something? What's he driving at?
Third line thoughts: Wait... What!?! I think my cerebrum just shit itself.
11/10/2010 3:51:23 PM
I have a feeling that it's more of a nutritional thing. I might be wrong, though. My friend has a dog which eats any kind of dirt sometimes, is he trying to get exactly what color back?

They should try eating shrimp, I have heard that is what makes flamingos red.

"They should try eating shrimp, I have heard that is what makes flamingos red."
Well actually flamingos are pink. They eat a lot of marshmallows... mainly the pink ones...

Seriously? Okay, so I got pissed at my son Ham and his son Canaan for seeing me naked and drunk (and probably taking advantage of that). Yeah sure, I might have cursed them too. But seriously, I didn't literally mean they and their descendants SHOULD be slaves! Wake up, you racist bigots!

I eat mashed potato with thick beef gravy. Why am I not nicely tanned ?
I dont care for the taste of clay.
