  • State of Maine Might Bleach and Destroy 100 Pounds Of Bacon Because Of Missing Paperwork

    The product is perfectly fine. There is zero health threat from the meat. The man who owns it is not even trying to sell it to the general public. He simply wants to be able to cook the 100 pounds of bacon for himself, his family, and friends. And yet, the state of Maine says that they have to confiscate it because the store which processed the slabs of seasoned pig messed up the paperwork. The Bangor Daily News reports that "Officials from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry have told Randy Canarr that they feel badly about...

    A U.K. retail chain is getting toasted roasted on social media over a controversial sandwich. In celebration of Pride festivities in the U.K., Marks and Spencer recently began offering its “LGBT” sandwich — a guacamole-inclusive twist on a BLT — complete with packaging decorated with the colors of the rainbow flag. But despite praise from some within the LGBTQI+ communities, the item raised more than a few eyebrows on Twitter, with some accusing the retailer of marginalizing the community and culture.

    PHRASES like “bringing home the bacon” and “flogging a dead horse” could be CULLED to avoid offending animal lovers, an academic has claimed. Shareena Hamzah, from Swansea University, claimed the growing popularity of veganism could see people give meat-based metaphors the chop. It could mean historical sayings such as "taking a bull by the horns" or “putting all one’s eggs in one basket” become a thing of the past. Shareena Hamzah, of Swansea University, claimed the growing influence of veganism will raise awareness of animal cruelty and put an end to meaty descriptions.

    PALU, Indonesia, Oct 2 (Reuters) - Indonesia is in a race against time to save victims of a devastating earthquake and tsunami on Sulawesi island, the government said on Tuesday, as the official death toll rose to more than 1,200 and looting fueled fears of lawlessness. Four days after the double disaster struck, officials feared the toll could soar, as most of the confirmed dead had come from Palu, a small city 1,500 km (930 miles) northeast of Jakarta. Some remote areas have been largely cut off after Friday's 7.5 magnitude quake triggered tsunami waves, destroying roads and bridges, and...
