Fork more pork, in Argentina

Folks in Argentina are well known as the biggest consumers of beef in the world. They are also known for being somewhat . . . er . . . macho. So it’s hard to say how effective President Cristina Fernandez’s pitch for the country’s pork industry will be.

The news agency Reuters reports that Fernandez told pig farming leaders that eating pork was more effective than taking Viagra. Her experience was related to a previous weekend with her husband where barbecued pork was consumed. Her speech was televised.
