And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

Yeah, yeah - I know. Leviticus is old testament and thus outdated. Still, you can't beat it for hilarity. I mean, this is the same chapter of the bible that prohibits polyester and shrimp!

I think I've heard people discuss the most blasphemous possible meal. Of course serve pork and wine to annoy the Muslims, lobster to thumb your nose at Leviticus, steak to tick off the Hindus, non-kosher grape juice to contravene the Torah, veal to annoy PETA, maybe wash it all down with a prozac pill to tick off the Scientologists? What am I missing here?

Hot dog buns, as forbidden by Eris. Of course, Eris commands you to disobey that commandment in the immediately preceding verse, so I don't know if that counts.

o/~ Bunnies aren't just cute like everybody supposes
They've got those hoppy legs and twitchy little noses
And what's with all the carrots?
What do they need such good eyesight for anyway?
Bunnies, bunnies, it must be bunnies! o/~

Also, Wikipedia has a nice list of all the traif animals.

Did that same passage say we ought to eat locusts, beetles and grasshoppers? Or am I reading too fast and clumsily?

All winged insects that go on all fours are detestable to you. Yet among the winged insects that go on all fours you may eat those that have jointed legs above their feet, with which to hop on the ground. Of them you may eat: the locust of any kind, the bald locust of any kind, the cricket of any kind, and the grasshopper of any kind. But all other winged insects that have four feet are detestable to you.

Locusts, crickets and grasshoppers are cool, but beetles are right out!
