Celebrating Diversity...

... By Letting the Pigs Drink Tea
Even to a veggie like me, it seems pretty obvious that pigs are the tastiest animal. They are made of bacon. They contain cracking, go very nicely with apple sauce, and even their icky bits provide us with sausage rolls. Yum yum yum.
Yet, in his eternal mystery, God decided to tell both the Jewish and Muslim people not to eat pig. There is war in Palestine, yet the pigs are safe.
Penny is very pleased about this, because it means that, in Israel at least, she can enjoy a cup of tea and chocolate biscuit without having to worry about being made into a sandwich.

  2. Shockingly, the inspiration for this poat came from Tim Minchin (it is Minchinmas, it's appropriate) - as well as from Penny

    (Which, when translated means:
    Loving the uneaten pig!)

    Happy Minchinmas, by the way
