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'
Sybarite: Sure, but we're talking about one charmin' motherfarkin' pig.
Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: So for kosher salt, does the rabbi like kill the salt in a spiritual way?
Lucky LaRue: I hope the people that are manufacturing and producing these burgers get their asses handed to them.
keypusher: It must be conscious and alive when it is slaughtered.Why?
PC LOAD LETTER: While religious dietary restrictions are mostly silly, it doesn't mean you can do this.
give me doughnuts: No stunning/killing. Slit it's throat and let it bleed.
KiltedBastich: Do explain, this should be good.
nekom: Neither horse nor pork will kill you.
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.
Dr Dreidel: The Mishnah Berurah starts by describing how to start your day - wake up, do the dailies, prayers, yadda yadda - down to which arm goes in your shirt first and which you you put on and tie first.
MorePeasPlease: I'll never forget the day I bit into a hamburger and my teeth hit something hard that gave way with a crack and a sudden pop, then a warm runny liquid oozed onto my lip. I slowly removed the burger from my mouth, placed it onto the table and pulled back the top bun to reveal the broken body of a tiny Bruce Willis.
Big_Fat_Liar: Lucky LaRue: I hope the people that are manufacturing and producing these burgers get their asses handed to them.Hahahahaha. Won't happen. How are you going to sue somebody for putting pork in hamburgers? You'd have a better chance at winning your loser lottery if it turned out to be beef or some kind of tofu crap.
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.Amusing tag should have turned left at Albuquerque for this one.
rev. dave: make sure all the utensils were kosherized before bringing them into the kitchen
Tatsuma: RottNDude: Ah yes, religious dietary restrictions, a tenet of yore that has absolutely no basis in the real world...Therefore, fark them for wanting to abide by it while not forcing you to abide by them?[forums.watchuseek.com image 321x360]
Tatsuma: 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.... you know you're obsessed when you blame the Tea Party for something that happened in England.
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.
Soygen: If god dictates your diet, then maybe you should pack your own lunch.
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.
"Looks like pork, Randy!"
RottNDude: Ah yes, religious dietary restrictions, a tenet of yore that has absolutely no basis in the real world...
