Efforts to Firm Up Argentine Pork Market

Given how often pork products are featured on this blog, I thought it appropriate to post the following admonitory report from the southern hemisphere......

From the MercoPress – Friday, 29 January 29 2010:

Pork better than Viagra, give it a go, recommends unabashed Cristina Kirchner

Argentine President Cristina Kirchner surprised guests at a business meeting by admitting eating pork improves sexual activity. Quite distant from her sharp lecturing style Mrs. Kirchner offered a rare non political intimate glimpse of the country’s most powerful couple life.

"I've just been told something I didn't know; that eating pork improves your sex life ... I'd say it's a lot nicer to eat a bit of barbecued piglet than take Viagra" Cristina Kirchner said to leaders of the pig farming industry.

She said she recently ate pork and spent a satisfying weekend with her husband and former president Nestor Kirchner. “The crusty skin of the piglet was excellent; then things went very well that weekend, so it could well be true."

According to Cristina she spent “a fantastic, fantastic weekend”. But “oops, should not have said that, Kirchner is going to kill me when I get back to Olivos [the presidential residence]”.
