  • This little piggy went to market...

    And never was the same again! I have a feeling giving a baby pig to a Jew for Christmas dinner is just so wrong on multiple levels. What do you guys think?

    Eating a baby anything to celebrate the birth of Jesus is creepy and wrong!

    You should only give a Jew a pig for Hanukka, Christmas presents are insensitive!

      A relative gave me the above pictured baby pig for Christmas. I thought that was pretty odd even for our familly. We also got a turducken from another relative, which under normal circumstances would be a strange gift, but next to the 10 lb baby pig it seems pretty darn normal.

      Seriously, has anyone else ever received a piglet for Christmas? Has anyone recieved a piglet for anything?

          Does it being, or rather, not being kosher have any bearing on the story? I don't really see an issue with receiving food but I'm a farm boy and my family makes Roseanne's seem like English aristocrats...

          That picture of the piggy is kinda funny paired with your signature...Pork and green jello is delish...

            I also wish there was a voting radio button for "All of the above" This is hilarious!

            As a Jew as well, I have lots of folks wishing me Merry Christmas, and it makes me happy - they're thinking of me, and wishing me well. If/when I tell them I'm Jewish, they wish me Happy Hanukkah. Same nice thoughts....

            I am loving the nice "backlash" to the over-frigging-blown-PC movement of recent years. The whole "Put the Christ back in Christmas" thing....

            And as for the pig, to me the only thing wrong is that it's a baby....NOT ENOUGH MEAT! :snaggletooth:

            But yeah....odd gift indeed....

            EDIT: didn't know what a Turducken was, had to look it up.....you really got BOTH of these as gifts??????? Wow.....just....wow.....
            What if the Hokey-Pokey really IS what it's all about?!

            Kinky Tom!

              The way the 3 get cooked together is special, I honestly dont think I have had duck cooked right more than a few times other than when in a turducken:chicken 1:

                I can't say I've ever recieved a whole dead animal as a gift on any occasion, but I suppose this is an odd gift on more levels than that. I guess it's the thought that counts, however strange the thought may have been.

                Reminds me of something I read in the Principia Discordia. (if you've never heard of it, I'll warn you googling it will be sort of like alice chasing the rabbit, so just hit amazon) One of the tenets of faith is to joyously partake of a hot dog on friday in order to offend all major religions simultaneously: Judaism and Islam - no meat of pork, Hinduism - no meat of beef, Christianity - no meat on Friday, and Discordianism - no hot dog buns. Given that Christmas falls on a Friday this year, I suppose giving hot dogs as Christmas gifts would be the offensive trifecta.

                Disclaimer: I don't actually ascribe to the "religion" in that book. I just find it really entertaining

                  This has to be the strangest Christmas poll I've come across in a while :biglaugh: :scratchchin:

                  I'm going to assume the realative is from the other side of the family.

                    Well, this just sold a copy. Many thanks... Of course you are un-preaching to the converted;)...

                      I've seen my share of odd Christmas gifts in my time - but that tops them all. How do you wrap a gift like that? Does the dissection lab offer gift boxes specially sized for fetal pigs, or do you get a really big gift bag and some tissue paper?

                        FWIW, a pig can never be kosher. According to the Pentateuch, Jews were not to eat any animals with split hoofs.

                          I was aware of the pork/Jew situation, just wondering on whether it had any relation to m-fine's situation... I remember that folks used to wish MLS happy Easter, a holiday that historically saw Jews getting rocks thrown at them...

                          On the cloven hoof thing, do you think that discordians stay away from hot dog buns on account of it being cloven bread?:biglaugh:

                            No, piggy actually came from the Jewish side of the familly. Since we are a multi-faith household, many of the local jewish family members invite themselves over to our house for Christmas dinner (beats Chinese I guess). I generally accept people inviting themselves over as long as they bring a dish which saves my wife and I from having to prepare the entire feast. The piglet came early since I apparently need to cook it, which of course defeats the purpose of bringing a dish. :fryingpan: The turducken came from the Catholic/Southern baptist side via FedEx, FWIW.

                              Ditto! I could never understand how Christmas wishes could be offensive. The santa stuff and aggressive shoppers get old fast, but Merry Christmas is a NICE thing.

                              And as for the pig, to me the only thing wrong is that it's a baby....NOT ENOUGH MEAT! :snaggletooth:
                              Never even seen one under 40 lbs. I prefer 150 plus just because there is more meat and fat than just skin and bones.
