The other white meat blue pill

At the risk of offending any Jews, Muslims, or vegans who are reading this, there's nothing quite so heavenly as some perfectly-grilled baby back ribs or a few pieces of wonderfully pan-sizzled strips of bacon (okay, I was just kidding about offending the vegans) but pork products don't exactly make me feel, um, like this...
Argentina's president recommended pork as an alternative to Viagra Wednesday, saying she spent a satisfying weekend with her husband after eating barbecued pork.
Hey, that's amazing! And what kind of audience was she addressing? Psychotherapists who deal with sexual dysfunction issues? Chemists who work on erectile dysfunction drugs? Er, not exactly...
"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," President Cristina Fernandez said to leaders of the pig farming industry.
I'm sure that the fact that she was talking to people from the pig farming industry didn't influence her remarks at all.
