Somacandra: [i.imgur.com image 276x260]You should have seen the beverages they were handing out.
Sybarite: Sure, but we're talking about one charmin' motherfarkin' pig.
Tatsuma: People who do these kinds of things (usually for profits) are the worst type of people.
Notabunny: It's hard to imagine how this could be a mistake. It's easy to imagine how this was done to increase profit. And knowing the meat was going to be labeled halal, it's also easy to imagine this being done out of hate.
NostroZ: At least it's not Chinese rat-burgers (advertised as lamb).It happens everywhere and that's why I'm very suspicious of where my food comes from.

And knowing the meat was going to be labeled halal, it's also easy to imagine this being done out of hate.Yeah, the mistake thing I don't buy, but frankly I don't think it's out of hatred either. Usually these things happen for one reason and one reason only: more profit.'Oh you want these specifications, sure? I'm gonna use a substitute it for something cheaper, fark your beliefs I want more profit'
nekom: It's a worldwide problem, and it makes you wonder what ELSE is in there. Horse meat and pork may have religious or social meaning to some, but as far as a health concern meat is meat. Neither horse nor pork will kill you. But if you aren't getting exactly what's advertised, it raises SERIOUS questions about the food supply chain in the world.

shifty lookin bleeder: More like 'Ha! lol' burgers, amirite?
SphericalTime: FTA: <i>Suleman Nagdi, from the Federation of Muslim Organisations, said: "For people, this is touching at the very tenet of their faith, the very heart of their faith. There needs to be a criminal procedure against the company," he said. "At least it would bring some confidence into the community."</i>No, I think civil procedure would be just fine in this instance. Violating the tenets of a religion really doesn't strike me as ever being a criminal matter.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: When I was in school, the food was barely edible, much less halal or kosher
Notabunny: School lunches taught me that textured soy protein used as a filler in chili and hot dogs and hamburgers, etc. will cause me to go into anaphylactic shock. School lunches also taught me how to use an epipen. Good days. Good days.
Tatsuma: SphericalTime: Violating the tenets of a religion really doesn't strike me as ever being a criminal matter.Could easily see it fall under hate crimes, harassment, etc..
RottNDude: Ah yes, religious dietary restrictions, a tenet of yore that has absolutely no basis in the real world...
"Looks like pork, Randy!"
BKITU: That's a pretty horrible thing to do your fellow human being. However:shifty lookin bleeder: More like 'Ha! lol' burgers, amirite?This is the funniest damn thing I've read in a week.
KiltedBastich: No real reason it couldn't be both. I could easily see a narrow-minded real 'Murican getting his jollies knowing he was boosting his bottom line and sticking it to the Mooslins at the same time.
Nabb1: I'm guessing Halality did not ensue.
