BUT ITS KOSHER

We all know to keep ourselves clean, and to protect ourselves from catching this virus called the swine flu. Even though this is a major problem and concern for everyone, a member of the knesset, who was chareidi, decided to first let you know that you shouldn't call it "swine flu" because swine means pig and pigs aren't kosher, before he said what we should do to protect ourselves; and instead let everyone know he decided to call it the Mexico flu, because that's so much better.

This so called problem of naming something after something that's not kosher, is just too weird, so its not kosher, but its not like we are eating the non kosher item by calling it that name, nor will we be tempted to eat non-kosher just because it has the same name. This problem does not only exist in this case, there has been times where I heard people complaining about animal crackers. Yes, animal crackers that are shaped as horses, or rabbits, maybe a lion and a bear, were scrutinized for being non kosher animals, even though the product was kosher. These people were afraid that we are teaching kids to eat non kosher animals, I think Peta has a better claim than them, teaching kids to kill animals through biting off their limbs, there is more of a chance of that than eating real non-kosher animals.

Ill end this with one question for those people out there who are afraid to name things after non kosher items, "Weren't the shivatim compared to lions, wolves, snakes, donkeys, and those aren't kosher animals?". I seem to think the question answers are problem, and there is no need to be afraid, for whatever reason. So instead, get up there and tell us how to protect ourselves, not how to be more stringent.

Let's not forget the new baby fingers which I call pedophile rabbi fingers.

I think chol chamoed trips to the zoos and aquariums should be banned. Some kid is gonna look at one of the not kosher animals and think to himself, "Now that looks tasty. I'm gonna go get me a gun and kill me some dinner."

Great point about the Shevatim... but you *must* know that if the Torah came out today, it would surely be banned...
It portrays our ancestors as imperfect, with human frailties -
It contains violence, murder and sex -
AND it has no Haskomos......

Yes the lady/baby/bulk fingers is also part of the controversy.

G6

Do you see people in kollel learning tanach? only the first five books, its already banned.

wow you're retarded.

Moshe said...

Wow, how do you manage to attract all the trolls. And they're so eloquent too.

Jonathan said...

haha yeah have fun with your kosher discussions. You guys are worried about what a flu is called rather than taking measures to help out. Good going.

Jonathan

You cant read can you? I was writing about how you shouldnt care about what its called, but you can try and act smart as much as you want.

Moshe

Theyre brilliant arent they?

Moshe said...

Yeah, like a black hole, and as sharp as a mallet.
