BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Argentina's president thinks eating pig meat is really sexy.
Many people in this beef-loving nation reacted with surprise Thursday after Cristina Fernandez promoted pork in a speech during which she not only said pork is better than Viagra, but suggested she's personally proven it.
"I didn't know that eating pork improved sexual activity," Fernandez said in a meeting with representatives of the swine industry late Wednesday. "It is much more gratifying to eat some grilled pork than to take Viagra."
They are easy prey for lobbyists, corporations and the like.
Particularly egregious here is the fact that it is Argentina. I can't help but think that that country has other issues more pertinent than the selling of pork to amp up people's sex lives.
Isn't that something out of 'Idiocracy'?
And just from an advertising point of view, is it really wise to pick an elderly woman whose prolific amount of plastic surgery makes her look like a blue haired Hollywood diva from the silent era still living on Sunset Boulevard as your spokesperson for "spicing" things up?
