BBQ Joint: Swine Flu Keeps Folks from Piggin Out

5/1/2009 2:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton isn't the only mega-moron who thinks you can get swine flu from eating pork -- we talked to people at a classic BBQ place in Arizona, who pretty much told us the only thing more infectious than S.F. is stupidity.

Paris Hilton - swine flu

The folks at Porky's BBQ said their number one seller -- the juicy, tasty, mouth-watering pulled pork -- has dropped in sales by 40 percent since the "epidemic" struck Earth.

Another BBQ pit in L.A., The Oinkster, has even resorted to telling customers that they "offer BBQ pulled pork without a side of swine."

What do you expect to happen when you name a flu pandemic after a
meat product. Watch sales of Quarter Pounders drop if you called it
Beef Flu, or fast food chicken if you called it Chicken Flu.

I cook meals for my 89 year old mother and every time the news tells of a food scare, that food gets taken off the list of foods she will eat. I am getting very limited because she just took pork off the list. The economy could be a reason for the lack of customers.

The funny thing is, the originality of this new 'swine flu' is a pig farm in Mexico OWNED by an american firm. Guess they could be a little lax on the health regulations, save a couple bucks ey! Don't always blame the other guy!!!

Note to self, Don't ever eat at a restaurant that calls it's customer base "Stupid". The only thing more infectious than stupidity is WORD OF MOUTH!!!! Stop eating at Porky's, I'm sure there's a place right up the street that sells BBQ.

Holy Crap~!
Get your facts straight
YOU CANT GET H1N1 from EATING PORK

It is obtained by coming in contact with PIGS. Period. End of story.
OR with someone who has been in contact with them
