I can understand the worry for muslims if there is pig blood in cigs, but to be honest, do a search for what else is in cigarettes and you'll see that pig blood is that last of your worries.

Thanks a lot for that list, but honestly it rather disgusted me.

If we could get over our lust for dead animal flesh, we wouldn't need to worry about what to do with all the nasty parts of the animal.

Problem solved.

You've forgotten black pudding...it contains pig blood!

Oh Noooo


A lot of what you've listed contains Bovine derived gelatin, not exclusively or necessarily porcine gelatin.

Jelly sweets (candy) contain bovine or cow gelatin.

Jelly (jello?) does too.

*yawn* There is plenty of pig blood in the pork chops, bacon, bangers and other delicious pork products that I consume with huge enjoyment.

At least a cannibal muslim fanatic wouldn't consider me a meal.

Awesome - and who's to say that using animals for products is a bad thing. Imagine a world without cigs, ice cream and tambourines...

Good old trusty pigs.

Funnily enough - my cousin caught swine flu and was ill for a short while. The first thing she did when she got better?

Ate a bacon sandwich (as some form of fitting revenge).

Yep. I have truly heard it all, now. I'm actually eating pork rinds right now. After I've consumed all that I want to, I'm going to light up another Marlboro red. I don't care. I love pork, I love cigs and I love pigs that smoke cigs.

I would seriously like to think that jews and muslims believe that their smoking has condemned them to hell.

Have you looked to see what goes into hot dogs and commercial beef patties?

At least with my smoke... I am burning it to ashes and not eating it, lol.

Wow, that is truly disgusting!
I steer clear of pork and pig products as much as possible, but now pig seems nigh unavoidable... unless I don't shampoo my hair. Guess it's time to rock the dread's!

funny story actually, me and a few friends were out in the city and went to a really inviting restaurant, amongst us was my friends new boyfriend, really cool guy, funny too and had alot of experiences and interesting stories. we all started talking and one thing led to another and we started discussing religion in a friendly and open minded manner. hes a christian and he said that he quit eating anything that comes from pigs. so he was asked why? he said "that in his job he encounters alot of people that have been burnt, and the smell of human flesh burning is exactly like that of bacon". he stopped eating it a long time ago...

on the other hand it is good to get used to it in case theres no food and only humans. it'll make it easier to munch man flesh!
