Turns out Kyrgyzstan is NOT kidding around when it comes to their beloved national delicacy "chuchuk." Scottish gold mine worker Michael McFeat learned that the hard way, when he joked on Facebook on New Year's Eve that the sausage, which is made out of horse meat, looked like a horse's penis (not a specific horse, just any horse really).

Man whose native country invented haggis.

His joke, accompanied by a photo of his coworkers lining up to order the delicacy, caused a brief work strike at the mine (yes, really), but McFeat did manage to dodge the very serious charge of "inciting inter-ethnic hatred," punishable by 3-5 years in prison. But despite deleting the post and apologizing, he was told he had 24 hours to leave the country. Officials say he was deported due to a lack of proper documentation to work in the country, but really it's absolutely because he said the sausage looked like horse dick. Which it does.
