I'm not saying that pigs trotters aren't a delicacy (though I confess that I have no desire to ingest them) but I do agree that if Shem had been around when "Moses" wrote those laws, maybe the world would have been a happier place!
I mean, you'd no longer have to bring home the bacon, you'd have it all on a plate.
You'd no longer have to eat like a pig, smell like a pig, or be called a pig over an attitude.
Stubbornness could be wiped out in an instant, if folks weren't pigheaded, and surely it's the interactibility of stubbornness that causes many wars?
Therefore I would argue that the world would have been a different place, had it not been for Job.
Maybe karma is a reality, after all...
