News, but not the serious kind
I’m ready Lamar, go have that pork chop now!
Warning, this is an adults-only scene. It’s evening in the boudoir, a woman is wearing a black satin nightie and red stiletto heels, there’s chilled champagne beside the bed…
“Are you as turned-on as I am, Lamar?”
“I sure am, Sweetheart!”
“Then go eat that ham sandwich and have your porky-porky way with me!”
It turns out Argentina’s president, the woman in these photos, has been making news in her country by telling the pig farming industry 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, adding that she recently spent a satisfying weekend with her husband – the gentleman in the photo above – after eating barbecued pork.
Indeed, it got her so much attention that she later praised the benefits of poultry, as well. I’m trying not to imagine the references to breasts, thighs and legs.
The boost for local products seems to be working out okay for her so far, but I hope she’s done her homework. If it turns out the Pfizer folks actually produce Viagra in Argentina, this ploy could come back to bite her. Or whatever.
