I’ve heard of a pork sword, but now there are pork bullets

Ham-500x500Some people will go to extreme lengths to insult others. Take this ammo company that is making ammunition with pork-laced bullets in an attempt to thwart jihadists ascending to heaven and taking their 72 virgins.

An Idaho ammunition manufacturer has developed a new line of pork-laced bullets they hope will fight against Islamic terrorists – and keep them from going to heaven.

South Fork Industries of Dalton Gardens, Idaho, took traditional bullets and coated them in pork-infused paint to make them “haram,” or unclean, under Islamic law. The company’s website labels the “Jihawg Ammo” bullets as “Peace Through Pork” and a “peaceful and natural deterrent to radical Islam.”  

“With Jihawg Ammo, you don’t just kill an Islamist terrorist, you also send him to hell. That should give would-be martyrs something to think about before they launch an attack. If it ever becomes necessary to defend yourself and those around you our ammo works on two levels,” the company said in a press release earlier this month.

The pink and black box bills the bullets as “Freedom’s first choice in defensive ammunition,” and says, “There’s Pig in the Paint.” There’s a related line of gear that feature slogans like “Put Some Ham in MoHAMed” and a target poster that says “Give Em a Spankin with some Bacon.”

Not sure how having pork in a bullet is a deterrent…surely the massive hole that just appeared in their chest is deterrent enough?

The other thing I am wondering is whether this ammunition should classed as defensive or offensive?

    It certainly seems a bit ham fisted….

    • XM16E1

      Not to say pig headed as well.

    “I love the smell of bacon in the morning!”

  • blokeintakapuna

    Certainly aiming for a particular target market. But brilliant in its simplicity.

    It’s like when Islamists want to build a mosque in New York… Let them build it between a pork butchery shop… And a massage Parlor, across the road from a casino and burlesque show…

    • AnonWgtn

      No, they will all be at the massage parlour sorting out their 70 virgins

    They are also developing a pork scratching grenade, and pig fat based napalm.

    Counting the days until the factory is torched…

    Will they make shellfish bullets for the Christian fundies?

    “But all in the seas or in the rivers that do not have fins and scales, all that move in the water or any living thing which is in the water, they are an abomination to you.” (Leviticus 11:10)

    “They (shellfish) shall be an abomination to you; you shall not eat their flesh, but you shall regard their carcasses as an abomination.” (Leviticus 11:11)

    • Droit

      Close… But no cigar. The New Testament specifically allows the eating of shellfish and the like. Still proscribed under the Jewish religion, though.

    • Mediaan

      That covers sushi with its part-seaweed wrappers and octopus etc too? Tough stuff.

    • blairmulholland

      There is no Christian denomination or tradition that forbids eating shellfish. It’s not a part of Christian beliefs.

      • Donovan Jackson

        I love how Christians ignore any inconvenient bits in the bible.

        • blairmulholland

          Your assumption is that Christianity requires imitating every command in the Bible. But that has never been a part of Christian beliefs in any denomination or tradition. What part of that do you not understand? It’s not an “inconvenient bit”, it’s part of the Levitical Law that was specific to the nomadic tribes of Israel wandering the desert. Every Christian knows this. Why don’t you?

          • Donovan Jackson

            Oh, sorry, so which bits are relevant and which ones aren’t, and how do you get to choose? Seems very complicated.

          • blairmulholland

            All bits are relevant. You seem to want to cherry pick and take things out of context. The Levitical Law is not a command for Christians to disavow shellfish any more than God’s command to Abraham to sacrifice Isaac was a command for Christians to kill their sons. There are numerous New Testament verses referring to the Christian freedom to eat any kinds of food. It’s a matter of looking at the whole Bible in context, and Christian tradition. It is not as simple as assuming that fundamentalist Christianity believes the Bible should be followed literally, and extrapolating from that that all Christians should follow Levitical dietary requirements.

            The lord and his followers do indeed work in mysterious ways.

  • rockape

    Not origional. I the good old days of the empire in India and mussel loaders. The rumour was put around that the powder packets that had to have the top bitten off were greased with pork fat. The moslem soldiers amongst the troops refused to touch them and wouldnt load their weapons.

  • rockape

    How about meat bullets for greenies.

    • Sponge

      Done on Mythbusters I believe.

  • Auto_Immune

    I’m happy to be corrected if i’m wrong, but aren’t those bullets pointless from a religious point of view? I.e. you only become unclean if you KNOWINGLY consume pork(?)

    • Magoo

      Does knowing that by confronting pig fat armed troops they are likely to get infected count as ‘knowingly’?

  • Mike

    How long before 0bama has them charged with a hate crime for hurting the feelings of the poor hard done by moslems. After all, it’s not their fault that they kill infidels, their ‘holy’ book tells them to, and it is offensive to them that infidels fight back instead of submitting.

  • Magoo

    Ahlah Snackbar!!

  • johnbronkhorst

    Reminds me of the explanation of the difference between involvement and commitment.
    >Bacon and eggs!!!
    The chicken is involved….now the pig…..he is committed!

    They struck trouble when Homer kept trying to fry up the ammunition.
