Garbage builds in Cairo without pigs to eat up organic waste.

This story in yesterday’s New York Times is actually quite devastating, and is also undeniably wack. Pigs, along with one subjugated racial group, have long been charged with garbage duty in Cairo. Now the pigs have been relieved of their duty by the Egyptian government, which rashly killed them all to prevent the spread of swine flu. The slaughter, of course, did no such thing, and trash in Cairo is now thigh-high, because goats, apparently, just aren’t as hungry as pigs.

Pigs were the champion garbage consumers in Cairo. Goats just dont seem up to the task.
