pork ban

Imagine bacon and eggs without the bacon, or pork and beans without the pork. Well if you’re an inmate in federal prison doing “hard time” has just become a bit harder.

Because the federal government has removed bacon, pork chops, pork links, ham and all other pig products from the national menu for 206,000 federal inmates.

Obviously the nation’s pork producers are in an uproar when the feds began implementing the ban last week citing a survey for their decision to ban pork products, suggesting that inmates simply don’t like the taste of pork.

Edmond Ross, a spokesman for the prison bureau said; “Why keep pushing food that people don’t want to eat, pork has been the lowest-rated food by inmates for several years.”


However there may be something a little more dubious at play, in that observant Muslims are forbidden to eat pork, and knowing this administrations propensity to accommodate Muslims, it would not be at all surprising if this administration had a hand in the banning of pork products.

Dave Warner, a spokesman for the pork industry said; “I find it hard to believe that a survey would have found a majority of any population saying, ‘No thanks, I don’t want any bacon.”
