Tatsuma: 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.

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'


I agree.  I think the cafeteria would have been better off with a non-prophet supplier.

PC LOAD LETTER: While religious dietary restrictions are mostly silly, it doesn't mean you can do this.


This. The wholly secular principle of "your food should be what it says on the tin" is worth defending even when it says something pointless on the tin.

If you want to label your meatballs as "whiffleblodget", which is defined as consisting solely of a 50-50 mix of salmon and beef, I might think it's silly that anyone would think it's a sin against FSM to eat spaghetti with non-whiffleblodget meatballs - but once you stick the "whiffleblodget" label on the wrapper, it damn well better be half salmon and half beef.

give me doughnuts: No stunning/killing. Slit it's throat and let it bleed.


Actually kosher slaughter is a lot more humane than stunning. The blade is extremely sharp, and done in one swift motion. Basically all the arteries that feed blood to the brain are cut, and the animal loses consciousness almost instantly (1 to 3 seconds) and the rest is all nerves and automatic responses. The animal does not suffer that way

KiltedBastich: Do explain, this should be good.


This is about something a UK school and a European distributor, and you tried to make it about the evils of the Tea Party. That's why it's so farking stupid.

ShawnDoc: farkeruk: So in which case, it might as well all be dumped, as these things hardly apply to 21st century society. We've solved the problems that God cared about through technology, therefore, God should have turned up and said "about the bacon? go right ahead now".

Oh, I'm not arguing that the dietary rules still belong, just pointing out that back in the days before science there were lots of reasons to ban pork.

Although, trichinosis, including brain eating worms, is still a problem in much of the world, due to poor sanitary conditions.  There's actually been an increase in recent years due to people eating pork in Mexico while on vacation.


One of our neighbors was diagnosed with a "brain tumor", except it wasn't, it was pork tapeworms in his brain. Sleep tight!

Munchkin City Coroner: Sick tag? Really? For some yummy pork getting into their lamb burgers? Did someone take a bite and yell, "Uck! This tastes like pork! I hate pork!"? No! They couldn't tell the difference and I bet they loved those burgers. I don't particularly care for the taste of lamb (a shall we say "down to earth" concern, no worries about only getting 71 virgins in magic happy place), but if it was in a hamburger and I couldn't tell the difference then no harm, no foul. Put lambs in there, sloths, carp, anchovies, orangutans, breakfast cereals, fruit bats, whatever. If there is no health risk and it tastes good then there is no problem. Just enjoy your burger.

No no no, let me explain. These "Halal" burgers must have come from Hungary, where the word "halal" means "death". Pork or no pork, they are just what their name implies, death burgers. Frankly, those kids are lucky if they are not dead yet.

Archaic religious restrictions aside, I think we can all agree that it would be nice if when we ate stuff, it was actually what we thought we were eating.

A DNA test found the burger contained between 10 and 50% pork.
Why even quote the number with a range that big? Burger also contained between 0 and 110% unicorn.
