Well after all, "pork" is a verb....

Argentine president Christina Fernandez said something that I doubt our PETA-plagued president could have gotten away with saying:

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Argentina's president thinks eating pig meat is really sexy.

Many people in this beef-loving nation reacted with surprise Thursday after Cristina Fernandez promoted pork in a speech during which she not only said pork is better than Viagra, but suggested she's personally proven it.

"I didn't know that eating pork improved sexual activity," Fernandez said in a meeting with representatives of the swine industry late Wednesday. "It is much more gratifying to eat some grilled pork than to take Viagra."

She even joked that "it was all good" after she enjoyed some pork with her husband, former President Nestor Kirchner.

"I think they might be right," Fernandez said to a laughing audience.

The country's top pork lobbyist (if that isn't a redundancy) offered some additional claims in support of the theory:
The head of the association of pork producers, Juan Luis Uccelli, supported Fernandez's speech by saying that Denmark and Japan have a much more "harmonious" sexual life then the Argentines because they eat a lot of pig meat.

"In Osaka, Japan, there is a village in which the people who reached 105 years old and ate a lot of pork had a lot of sexual activity," he told radio Mitre.

Hmmm..... I'm of Scandinavian descent, and I love Japanese food (especially pork tonkatsu...yum!), and I'm always looking for new co-factors. (Might rice be a factor in Japanese longevity?)

I love pork, but I have yet to conduct a double-blind, placebo-controlled, scientific experiment on myself to test out the president's interesting theory.

But if I ran an ad soliciting bind date participants in a "pork" study, could I get arrested?

Is it cumulative with yogurt?

If so, I figure I'll live to about 300 if I eat pork-flavored yogurt.

Now to figure out how to make that.

Just make sure everyone knows the difference between Pork and Long Pork. Big difference, trust me.

Dude, this is Argentina. If the Prez is pushing pork, it means she is stealing the cattle.

It's hard to make a comment about this without it coming out sounding like some kind of innuendo.
