Man deported for comparing delicacy to horse pen!s

Police warned the man who got chucked out of Kyrgyzstan for making a penis joke that he could have started a war with the UK.

Michael McFeat, who is now back home in Perthshire, Scotland, posted a picture on Facebook comparing a ‘chuchuk’ horsemeat sausage – a local delicacy in the former Soviet country – to a penis.


In the photo, the 39-year-old’s colleagues were queuing up to buy the sausage. His caption read: ‘The Kyrgyz people queuing out of the door for their special delicacy the horse’s penis!!!’


He told the Sunday Post that he was banned from Kyrgyzstan for five years, and told by police that he ‘could send Kyrgyzstan to war with the UK’.


After his post caused an uproar he claimed he believed the traditional dish was actually a horse’s penis – but his co-workers didn’t believe him.


He had to be smuggled out of the Kumtor goldmine, where he worked, in the back of an ambulance after he found out an ‘angry lynch mob’ was coming for him.


McFeat then embarked on a dramatic and perilous nine-hour journey to Manas Airport in Bishkek, during which he described other cars trying to ram into him, and the security guards abandoning him in an industrial estate.


When he finally got to the airport, he was arrested and detained under racial hatred laws. After appearing in court and formally apologising, McFeat was flown back to Edinburgh.


‘I was told there was a 17-page petition demanding I be jailed and the mine went on strike after I left, so they were making an example of me,’ he added.


‘I’ve always been up for a joke but this was one time I wasn’t joking and it’s been blown out of proportion.’
