    Is nothing sacred any more?


    Are cattle and cabbage also sacred in America? If not, why did the guy say the above? Thanks.

    Re: Is nothing sacred any more?

    In the US, corned beef and cabbage is a traditional St. Patrick's Day dinner. However, there has recently been some controversy in the US regarding the cloning of cows and whether or not their meat is fit for human consumption.

    Serving "cloned corned beef and cabbage" on St. Patrick's Day would be similar to serving soybean hot dogs at the baseball park - it would go against hundreds of years of tradition.
