Happy New Year!

Too bad. If you choose to be stupid religious, then you lose out on yummy foods.

I'm going to put bacon and lobster on my cheeseburger just to stick it to the people who are bothered by it.

Goat cheese. Keeps your otherwise cheeseless steamed hams kosher.
 
2020-09-18 11:57:26 AM  
L'Shana Tova, y'all.
And I assume the bacon's a no-no for today.

Lobster on a burger? Is that actually good?

Not if you're allergic to shellfish, as I am.

It's nice not having to worry about sky wizards who disapprove of a bacon cheeseburger.

It's not the source of the cheese that's the problem. Mixing meat with dairy is the no-no.

Doesn't matter if it is good if I'm sticking it to the religious right.

Huh. I did not know that. I thought the prohibition was only against mixing meat and dairy from the same kind of animal (e.g. beef and cow's milk).

I read yesterday that National Housewife Day and National Sandwich day are the same day (in November, I think).

Coincidence?  Discuss among yourselves.

Does American cheese count as "dairy"?
 
2020-09-18 12:28:53 PM  
Nowadays a cheezeburger can be perfectly Kosher. No meat, no dairy at all.

I wonder when National Jerked Pork Day is?

Oh, wait. Everyday is National Jerked Pork Day.

Eat the burger then ask for forgiveness?  Does that work for Judaism like it does for Catholicism?

Only if it is more than 40% mild solids. Otherwise, if it is over 40% ester waxes and plastics, it is considered processed Cheez FUD.

You know, like V-brand CheezFudd bricks ....

Beats the Hell out of nothun-berders in the Sky When you Die, either way. I have a begrudging respect for some of the up-market religions. Notably high-end Buddhism.

I never understood how they got "no cheeseburgers" from that verse but then I'm not a rabbi.

Reformed Jews get to eat cheeseburgers until sundown tonight.

Because azhkenazis built a fence around the Torah. See kitinyot.

Please do ashkenazim the way I put makes it seem like I'm trying to say something I'm not.

It's "thou shalt not braise a kid in its mother's milk", which means ... well, nobody knows.  But it's written in three different chapters, so people figured it was important, and over many centuries they decided to err on the side of caution, by choosing a very broad interpretation.

PS I'm guessing "steamed ham" was a joke, but for anyone who's wondering, ham is never kosher.

Yes, it's a joke.

Yes, but you have to wait till Yom Kippur. Not that long a wait.
The dietary laws don't make sense because they are not meant to make sense. Religion is a device for building obedience; making you follow some stupid rules habituates you to being obedient. There are lots of similar inherently meaningless rituals in secular life as well.

Goat cheese and turkey "bacon."

deciding what to eat based on some invisible bastard in the sky is stupid and shows you make poor life choices

Jewish guy I play golf with swears you can get around both shellfish and bacon cheeseburger bans if you bless them while holding a Guinness.

I'm not religious, but it sounds as plausible as any of the other religion BS I've heard.

His name is Bergs.

No one is bothered by that. Well, some vegans would be. But that's it.
