Monster Barf: Weird, Smelly Foam Oozes Through Cracks in Chinese Streets

Monster Barf: Weird, Smelly Foam Oozes Through Cracks in Chinese Streets


Something very strange started oozing out of the streets in the Chinese city of Nanjing on Saturday night. Generally, when weird things start erupting from the ground in Asian countries it’s in the form of a giant b-movie monster, but this invasion was a whole lot realer, and a whole lot smellier.

At around 9PM, pedestrians began to notice the pavement at the Wende Baiyun Lane cross intersection started to crack and split open, and before long, a foamy white substance was spewing from the cracks, brining with it a foul-smelling stench. Within a short time, the foam had spread to a 50 meter radius and stood a foot high.

According to the Chinese news outlet Longhoo, firefighters and police rushed to rope off the scene, evacuating civilians and helping redirect the flow of traffic from the flow of ooze.


A short time later, the strange substance stopped leaking and the remnants that weren’t quickly washed into the sewers retreated back into the one centimeter wide cracks in the road, leaving authorities baffled as to what the stinking foam could have been.

An investigation has been started into the case of the smelly ooze, but so far, the only rational explanation that officials can come to is that the ‘Godzilla barf’ might be related to nearby subway construction, though even that theory hasn’t answered many questions.

What do you think of the weird stinking foam? Did some subterranean monster used a bit too much detergent? Share your theories with us on Facebook, on twitter @WeirdHQ, or in the comments below!

    Okay, now that is /weird/. I’m going to assume/hope someone got a sample of it before it disappeared, but are there any theories? My money’s on a toxic melange of chemicals, unregulated products being dumped into the sewer, and good old fashioned human feces.

      If I know the chinese, they’ll find a way to prepare the green, slimey, foam as food!!

      and not one chinaman smart enough to get a sample and test it? duh!

      Yeah, and they gots to do that cause there ain’t enough Chinese chicks to go around for every man cause stoopid couples want boys and not girls and try to engineer the outcome of their one allotted baby.

        I’m like a year late on replying but China has that policy to reduce the population. China is overpopulated. It is a kinda harsh policy but it’s reasonable.

      Or the toothpaste they all use in North America with Fluoride in it, it’s even in the drinking water! You better look what they’re doing in your own back yard.

      Here’s what China thinks of Fluoride in YOUR water system and toothpaste!

      And here’s Fluoride eating through concrete…

      But wait, there’s more…a whole lot more……

        A few observations:
        1) The cheese seems to have fallen off your cracker.
        2) Because of that, your reading comprehension seems to have suffered as well.
        3) You are projecting your craziness on others.

        Some things to work on for you.

          When you finish being defensive maybe you should read up a bit on Fluoride (it’s not all roses, like much in life).

          BTW M31, if you’re trying to give advice about things which should concern us do it in a positive way – all your post did was make me think “what a jerk”.

      • DaffyDuck

        05/15/2013 at 1:11 PM

        “cheese off your cracker” – which is about the most polite thing I’d have to say to the kind of ignorant, uneducated idiots peddling his fluoride paranoia.

        There’s always one or two of those around.

    Cheap construction ‘expanding’ foam? – pumped into/underneath road before it was constructed? Not the most exciting theory, but I have worked on lots of construction jobs and the materials they use to fill gaps etc!!

    • Jon

      05/14/2013 at 6:58 PM

      That was my thought but then why would it ooze back into the same crack to disappear?

      • darrell

        05/15/2013 at 6:26 AM

        because it was really,really cheep expanding foam, probably made in china.

    WOE, WOE, WOE, to you china. For allowing dogs and cats to be skinned alive to make fur coats, you, Oh China, shall suffer great calamities. The Planet is a living being that sees what you do. May your corrupt country fall into a deep sinkhole and never see the light of day again.

      Cmon man, they EAT the dogs and cats, everyone knows that! At least dogs and cats are actually good for u if you eat them. We should suffer great calamities for allowing our food and beverage industries to feed us shit like Bromine and Benzene and pesticides that damage the DNA we pass to our children.

      Yea, that was my first thought,but this is my first time visiting this site,by all these comments it seems like a WIERDO,I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO DO SITE. But im really curious if this event really took place. With all the wierd phenomena going on last several months, and my Christian faith, it seems to me,IF IT’S REAL, that the foamy goo and especially the reported foul smell, may be more demonic manifistations,like the sinkholes everywhere, UFO sightings suddenly now allowed to be publicized, after many years of HUSH-HUSH CLASSIFIED reports,etc.

  13. Angela Perry

    05/14/2013 at 10:29 PM

    Is this some photo-op site, designed for entertainment, or is it a real event that’s being laughed at by people who are dumbed down,laugh at ,as if it is a prank ? Most of the comments are scoffing,crude, and just plain STUPIDITY. IF its real, its sad how many people obviously don’t CARE for mankind,and are so BRAINWASHED and HARDHEARTED,that they make a mockery of it! With all thats going on in the WHOLE WORLD these last days,u gleefully makefun of a very serious situation? IF its real,i hope they got a sample…and IF its construction fill-in foam oozing up thru a small crack,that WASN’T there before,the size of it is hard to believe that it oozed back in same small crack. Then there is the question of the SMELL….NO,I DONT think IF it is REAL that its funny at all. We should PRAY for them,enemies or not,something isnt NORMAL about this at all. Just like everything happening all over the world EVERYDAY, is not NORMAL. God have mercy on us ALL!!!

      • Angela Perry

        05/14/2013 at 10:53 PM

        Im just curious if this is a true site. And im sorry but if u know all I’ve learned since Easter Sunday ,when God woke me up after a very long miserable backsliden life, then we both know know some of these comments arent just lightening up, they’re downright cruel. The time for playing around is over,we HAVE to get serious. Things are BAD,BAD,BAD. I can laugh at a joke or funny pic,but i just cant make light of a real scarey “something” never seen before. Im sorry,maybe this isnt a site for me…however, i did find it interesting. Ok,im outta here..God Bless..

          It’s all good. I understand your thought process. This website is A) for real, and B) for fun. So while we might cover some heavy topics from time to time, we try to do so with as much lightheartedness as we can get away with. There’s plenty of fearmongers out there when it comes to fringe news, and we don’t care to be one.

    05/14/2013 at 10:56 PM

    And WHAT ABOUT THE SMELL??? Is THAT a normal occurrence with the filling u speak of?

    With all the pig factory farms in China, I think it was this……

    Mysterious pig manure foam that’s been showing up across US pig farms..and probably CHina’s too.

    Those little alien stinkers are trying to clean up their act and put too much soap powder into the washing machine.

  24. Steve Vanden-Eykel

    It looks disturbingly familiar to me. Anybody else ever work as a dishwasher? It looks exactly like the foam that builds up in the greasetraps. Which also had the most gawdawful stench imaginable. Cleaning the greasetraps was always the worse job.

    So…my theory? Stagnant grey water in which a lot of soap and food particles have been marinating in for a while. Disgusting, but hopefully not particularly toxic.
