Shark fin soup is one of the cruelest dishes in the world. Nothing like catching a shark, cutting off it's fins than throwing it back in the water to die slowly.

Are you aware of that you are promoting the extinction of sharks through a totally stupid Chinese practice of using their fins in soups.
