Secret Olympic Pigs

By far the strangest thing I came across this week. There’s an article on FT.com about how the official pork supplier for the 2008 Beijing Olympics is feeding its pigs only organic food in order to insure that Olympic athletes will not fail doping tests. Typically, the pork supplier, Qianxihe Food Group, uses growth hormones to rear the pigs. A customary practice in China according to a company spokesman. The company is so serious about its pigs being steroid free that it is raising these Olympic pigs in secret locations throughout China. Wow.
