What's the Straight Dope on Glowing Pork?


What could be the source of this alleged necroluminescence?

I’m going to go with a phosphorescent bacteria, such as Pseudomonas cyanagenus. Go on, call me crazy.

“It was nothing of this earth, but a piece of the great outside; and as such dowered with outside properties and obedient to outside laws.”

I, for one, will not be drinking the new city water of Shanghai.

Rlyeh not?

Probably a misunderstanding, and it was supposed to be “growing pork.”

Yet more proof that the pig is, as Homer wisely observed, a magical animal.

Ew. I was going to guess that the pig had been fed on jelly fish - a common protein source in China. Kinda disappointed actually. And grossed out of course.

Pork violates Kryptonian Kosher.

Would you eat it on a boat?
Would you eat it on a goat?
Would you eat it if in debt
Would you eat it on a bet?

I read a comment by a character in Ulysses, that old cod was slightly shining in the dark.
Could this be the same cause?

While examining store-bought cold salmon at a party under black lights, I noticed many slightly fluorescent green regions were visible.

Debbie: Can I ask you a question?

Grim Reaper: What?

Debbie: … How can we all have died at the same time?

Grim Reaper: [pointing] The salmon mousse!

Would you eat it while at night?
If you could see by its own light?
I think that you would love it so,
while sitting it its pleasant glow.
I do not want to sit and eat
by the light of this pork meat!
I do not like your glowing ham!
I do not like it Sam-I-am
