Here we are with last PARSNIP which is Pork apparently. Not quite as controversial as the others perhaps but we shall see, wahahaha!
What he heck could you do with pork in the ELT classroom then?
1)The obvious, references to religion and how it has been used to insult some Muslims and defile their burial grounds even.
2)As a link into other religions and their rules/law/life suggestions. How possible is it to enforce them in the modern world? Should we? Can you consider yourself as really religious if you don follow the strict diet set down for you?
3)GM and pigs. Is the life of a pig a fair trade for you a new liver when you destroyed the first through alcohol abuse?
4)Why on earth was there a fad about 10 years for Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs? How other ridiculous pets?
5)Why do we find it so disgusting that other countries eat horse, dogs or goats when we eat pigs?
Some interesting piccies for your piggy taste buds:
