Bog trotters...

Shock news today as all Irish pork products have been recalled from sale in the UK. The recall comes after routine testing found that meat from 9 farms was contaminated with a Welsh toxin called Di Oxin. Although brief exposure to the toxin is not thought to be harmful, the FSA (Financial Services Authority) has stated that prolonged exposure could lead to a propensity to eat leeks and sing in a male voice choir. This latest food scare couldn't come at a worse time for Irish farmers, already hit by the international credit crisis, who are now ham-strung and are looking to their government to save their bacon. Labour Party spokesman on agriculture and food, Sean Sherlock, said "the announcement amounts to a threat to the overall viability of our food industry, as great as, if not greater than, the outbreaks of BSE and of foot and mouth." No shit, Sherlock!

Babe (1995) -

All joking aside,
If you don't end up in tears,
You ain't got a heart.
