Pork improves sex life, says Argentine leader


Oct 18, 2009
BUENOS AIRES—Argentina’s president thinks eating pig meat is really sexy.

Many people in this beef-loving nation reacted with surprise Thursday after Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner promoted pork in a speech during which she not only said pork is better than Viagra, but suggested she’s personally proven it.

“I didn’t know that eating pork improved sexual activity,” Fernandez de Kirchner said in a meeting with representatives of the swine industry late Wednesday. “It is much more gratifying to eat some grilled pork than to take Viagra.”

She even joked that “it was all good” after she enjoyed some pork with her husband, former president Nestor Kirchner. “I think they might be right,” Fernandez de Kirchner said to a laughing audience.

The president’s half-joking speech in which she announced subsidies for the pork industry won prominent play on television and radio stations, prompting discussions on whether Argentines should add more pork to their diet.

Argentines are among the world’s biggest consumers of red meat, and most people here stubbornly reject the idea of replacing beef with chicken, pork or other meats. Despite Argentina lying along rich South Atlantic fisheries, seafood is rarely seen on dinner tables.

Fernandez de Kirchner approved subsidies to keep the price of pork low despite inflation, and her government has also recently subsidized red-meat producers after beef supplies sharply declined in the South American country.

The head of the association of pork producers, Juan Luis Uccelli, supported Fernandez de Kirchner’s speech by saying that Denmark and Japan have a much more “harmonious” sexual life then the Argentines because they eat a lot of pig meat.

“In Osaka, Japan, there is a village in which the people who reached 105 years old and ate a lot of pork had a lot of sexual activity,” he told Radio Mitre. Others were skeptical.

“There is no study showing that pork meat significantly improves sexual activity,” Amado Bechara, a specialist in sexual dysfunction, told the website of the newspaper La Nacion.

isn't it just a ruse to distract people from the increase in the price of beef this week, and the lack of beef coming in from the countryside...?
Yes Trey. But the next day she had another conference again, promoting pork and chicken and making ridiculous metaphorical political rants against the opposing party. Its not that she criticized the opposong party, its the stupid mataphors she used and stupid remarks about pork and chicken, very infantile.
Pork: It is both a noun and a verb.

According CFK, eating it enhances doing it.

So let's have some locro and have at it!

(If you only have time for a quickie, just eat a wiener.)
This article is bound to cause more CFK nightmares for pandulf.ironhead.
Cristina is intensely disliked by Argentinians - not only are her approval figures in the toilet, but people have a deep visceral negative reaction to her - she appears on TV and viewers immediately switch channels. They just can't stand the sight of the woman, with her whorehouse makeup and fake hair extensions.

With elections coming up next year, her political handlers got worried, and are trying hard to make her more likeable. So they urged her to act "cute" and "nice" - to try to be more "simpatica"

Always obedient, Cristina tried using sex and humor. Not being gifted in either department, her efforts backfired. Now, on top of being perceived as nasty, dumb, and useless, people find her ridiculous. The media is having a field day making fun of her.

Stay tuned...!

Sara, long-suffering Argentine
Hola SaraSara...what about the time when she was quoted saying: "H2.....zero"? ...the news media had a party with that one too.
