Viagra - The Other White Meat

Sex aid?

The President of Argentina has aroused the interest of men everywhere, as it were.  President Cristina Fernandez publicly shared with her countrymen - and women - how satisfying a weekend she spent with her husband, after having eaten BBQ'd pork.  Pork?  What?  Let me explain.

"I've just been told something I didn't know; that eating pork improves your sex life.  I'd say it's a lot nicer to eat a bit of grilled pork than take Viagra," she told a convention of pig farming industry leaders. In the televised speech she said she recently ate pork and "things went very well that weekend, so it could well be true."

No doubt she enjoyed the pork...ahem, meat.  But she sounds like she enjoyed the sex, too.  And we now know what President Fernandez does to wile away the hours in her spare time.

One interesting aspect of this story is that Argentinian politicians would appear to have sex with their own spouses, not somebody else's.  This is a breakthrough.  This might actually start a trend in other countries.  Imagine.

The other amazing aspect is the obvious.  Imagine the money that's about to flow from Viagra prescriptions to pork.  I wonder if the Viagra market's about to go flat with the steep rise of interest in a pork substitute.  Not to mention the cattle industry.  They're bound to have a beef.

Put pork on my fork?  Don't mind if I do!  I just wonder how soon before, um, ah, sex do I have to eat it?

Eat pork and don't cry for me Argentina.

That's it! Bacon! That's what I couldn't remember to put on my shopping list... Gee, thanks!
And my wife made me roast pork last night...

...I guess she was trying to hint at something. I had no idea. Thanks for the heads up. :)

Eating pork replaces Viagra, huh!?! I never would have thunk it! I can just imagine what Big Pharma has to say about that!
nonamedufus said…
Don: Are you planning on makin' bacon?
nonamedufus said…
UR: Your wife's trying to get a rise out of you, I think.
nonamedufus said…
Skye: It's a loss for Big Pharma but a gain for Pig Farmers! You see, there is a down side (pun intended) to being a vegetarian!

I doubt that US politicians will adopt this foreign policy. Ahem.

Quirks: Yeah, the current interpretation of that foreign policy isn't quite correct. Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford has an Argentine girlfriend. Nothing wrong with that...other than he was married at the time.

When he was caught, he didn't eat pork...he ate crow.
Me-Me King said…
Uh oh, that explains why I'm not getting any.
Leeuna said…
Forget about Viagra. A good barbecue pork sandwich can often replace sex...I mean if it's a real good sandwich. Oh and bacon...yummm...way better.
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: You're not getting any pork?
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna: How many times a week do you do it...um, eat BBQ pork sandwiches and bacon?
AmyLK said…
It would seem that other counties have a lot to learn from her! lol

Sex with their own spouses? How selfish of them! They're elected to serve the public. I hope they're not ignoring the sexual needs of their constituents. (That is, of course, why so many politicians fool around. It's not for their own enjoyment. Oh no. They're just servicing the public good.)
nonamedufus said…
AmyLK: She really knows how to get to the meat of the matter, as it were.
nonamedufus said…
Joel: You know as a member of the public service for a good many years my friends would always kid me about screwing taxpayers. Geez, I had no idea I was doing it wrong!

LOL. Love the political commentary mixed with medical and farm terms.
I eat pork all the time -- morning, noon and night and can't go out in public anymore. Also, pork is China's most popular meat. No wonder they have a billion plus people over there, I guess.

P.S. -- My captcha word: winsum! I've had pork winsum at my Chinese restaurant.
nonamedufus said…
mama-face: Thanks. I appreciate you leaving a comment letting me know you enjoyed it. Who knew pork could improve your love life!?

Mike: Are you complaining or bragging?

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
