    Maybe it's a product of where I live, but the first thing that came to my mind after reading this was whether Islam or Judaism would sign off on their followers eating synthetic pork.

    It's not synthetic, it's just meat that comes from a lab rather than an actual pig. So probably not.

    At first I thought this was about Sen. Al Franken. NO! I'm trying to make this political. Honestly. We had a filler piece from his office in the file not too long ago and the slug was "frankendogs."

    I now return you to "Fake Pork - the other OTHER white meat."

    It was generated from pig cells, so I'd have to think that it wouldn't be OK.

    Officials with Soylent Green are not happy.

    If it was created by the same motherly petri dish, then I would say no.

    What if cheese was made in the same building?

    Then they could make croissanwiches without going to the restaurant.

    Aw nuts, I posted cheese on the Blind Side thread earlier. I must be a closet Cheese-head.
