Pigging out for better sex,
Not satisfied with plundering public coffers and getting into a constitutional crisis, Cristina Fernandez took the weekend off with her husband former president Néstor Kirchner and after a meal of pork, revealed her results to the press:
Pork better for sex than Viagra?
Argentina’s president recommended pork as an alternative to Viagra Wednesday, saying she spent a satisfying weekend with her husband after eating barbecued pork.
The botoxed, face-lifted Cristina explained,
“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 grilled pork than take Viagra,” President Cristina Fernandez said to leaders of the pig farming industry.
She said she recently ate pork and “things went very well that weekend, so it could well be true.”
Of course she didn’t go into the details why the push for pork,
Argentines are the world’s biggest per capita consumers of beef, but the government has sought to promote pork as an alternative in recent years due to rising steak prices and as a way to diversify the meat industry.
And why are beef prices rising? As I explained last February,
In 2006, Argentinean farmers turned away from beef, both in response to the rise in soybean and other commodity prices, but also because of export caps imposed as an anti-inflationary measure by then-president Nestor Kirchner – the current president’s husband. However, not all farmers switched crops. Some farmers sold their holdings in Argentina and moved to Uruguay in search of lower taxes.
Just don’t ask the Argentinian cattle ranchers what Cristina and Néstor can go do with themselves.
