I got trichinosis at X-Day

I'm going to sue those bastards at the Church. I was one of the
faceless participants at the Battle of Armageddon, I fought the good
fight but was rejected in te first round for attempting to kill Stang,
funny how Stang's followers will protect him to the death while the
Saint of Sales whom he claims to still adore gets killed in the first
five years of the church's existence. Dammit, I ate some of the pig
that was roasting at Virtual Valhalla, and I must not have gotten a very
well-cooked piece. The Cyclopaedic Medical Dictionary says that, to
kill the worm, the meat has to be cooked at 160 degrees in all areas.
Well, obviously, mine wasn't, because the next thing you know, I'm at
the doctor barfing up blood and venom and set back all weekend with the
worst diarrhea imaginable. The doctor listens to my tale then and the
very first thing he does is gives me a blood test. After that, he asks
me if I am having may muscle pain and I tell him yes, that my whole
goddamn body is sore. A few more tests, and the diagnosis is back:
Trichnosis. That goddamned pig poisoned me! And you fuckers probabally
have it, too. Well, I'll tell you, this damn class action lawsuit IS
going to go forth, and no stupid waiver or disclaimer is going to keep a
judge from convicting an organization for serving undercooked pork to an
entire battle group full of people.

Praise "Bob"!

Wow. I feel for you, I really do. BUT....

It thrills me to DEATH to know that someone got POISONED at Brushwood!

Aw if you were a REAL subgenius you wouldn't get trichinosis fron a
little underdone pork....you got worms somewhere else kid!

Not me. I ate a hamburger that night, since the lines were shorter. I then
soaked in the hottub for a good twenty minutes before putting on my preaching
robes and giving my killer Apocaleptic Movement rant THAT YOU ALL MISSED
because you were still trying to figure out which end of the pig to eat.

Except for kevbob, who slept through my rant as well.

Now.. would you happen to be the guy who was noshin' on the pig head
after it was "launched"? Hands all covered in pigblood and so forth?

Well. If it wasn't you, i'd like to know who it was. 'cuz i'd be quite
curious as to the health state of that particular individual.

Y'know, my wife's a vegetarian. Just came down with something a whole
lot like amebic dysentary, and wondered if she got it at X-Day. Meanwhile,
I ate the damned pig, drank the water, inhaled great heaping lungfuls of
'frop & campfire smoke, drank booze and coffee my every waking moment, and
I'm as healthy as any ten of you put together.

No point to this message or anything. I just wanted to rub it in.

Hope everybody gets well soon.

Yah, the horny guy is a conflation of the Old Testament Adversary (who is
much more like a prosecuting attorney FOR Adonai than the much later
apocryphal "fallen/rebel angel, enemy of God") with the Greeks' goat-footed

Everybody SAYS them smart old Jews prohibited eating pork because they
somehow knew of the risks of trichinosis and stuff like that, but I
dunno... Robert Graves makes a much more cogent point about pigs being
totem animals, and anyway if they didn't EAT 'em, why'd they KEEP 'em?
Answer is prolly for garbage disposals which goes a way toward explaining
why they didn't eat 'em.

Anyway the formula is that the beast is NOT kosher that divideth the hoof
and cheweth not the cud, OR that cheweth the cud and divideth not the hoof.
[See chart]

Divide Hoof Chew Cud
PIG Yes No
COW Yes Yes

Is horsemeat kosher? It would divide NOT the hoof and chew NOT the cud.

Okay, here's proof I can live up to my name. Look at Leviticus for a
good laugh, Chapter 11, I think. Basically, the writer said, "Hmmm,
nine times out of ten, if we're gonna kill something to eat that's good,
it's a cow. Cows are good. Anything that has the attributes of a cow
is good. Anything else is bad. Pigs don't throw up their cud and eat
it again. Pigs are bad." I could get even more technical here, but you
don't really need a bible lesson on a Subgenius newsgroup. Just look at
where it's okay to eat cetain kind of bugs, but they had a decade long
debate on chickens. They keep The Book of The Subgenius in the humore
section and the bible in religion? I dunno...

Just tell me who to kill and how many, I'll tell you where to deposit

There is no food that I don't like--
Bonobos are omnivorous, I think so--
although I'm not real crazy about eating termites and lizards,
unless they're cooked.
Someplace like Gold Beach would be ideal as far as being central
to all kinds of good food, cheap rent, too! Lots of driftwood.

Is it Crescent Beach where there are funny houses made of driftwood?
I disremember--

Pigs are a bad investment under marginal farming conditions.

They don't give milk
They can't draw a plough or carry a burden.
They can't be herded over long distances.
They are rooting animals and will destroy crops if they get loose.
They cannot eat grass, and so must be feed grain. Dogs (herding) and cats
(mousing) get what few table scraps are available.
Pigs don't do well in desert conditions because they don't sweat.

However, pigs are very good at converting carbohydrates to protein...

are high, and where the calculation of cost-benefits by individuals may

Therefore, pigs are evil. We must destroy all pigs. Pigs are the spawn
of the devil. Kill a pig for the lord. Pigs steal the baby's breath. I
was beaten, abused, and left for dead as a child by a pig. Pigs are the
cause of all of the worlds' problems.

Especially true if you're eating unfamiliar meat! Me, I can walk into an
Ethiopian restaurant and order kitfo (Ethiopian steak tartare) and have a very
lovely meal. I wouldn't expect everyone to do the same. Hell, in this one
retaurant in San Diego the cook REFUSED to serve the kitfo raw. I guess he
didn't trust the quality of the local beef. Can't blame him, although it didn't
make for a happy meal.

That doesn't mean I'll eat bloody fried chicken or pink pork. Uh-uh.
