Humor: Are pork rinds halal?

What Muslim hasn’t, in times of boredom, pondered the anomalies of his or her daily existence? Such as… do bald women have to wear hijab? How do you fast during summer at the Arctic Circle? And finally… are pork rinds halal? Even if there’s no pork in them?

This anonymously made (to us, anyway) video entitled, “A Dangerous Idea,” shows the dilemma a Muslim shopkeeper in New York City faces when a mysterious package shows up in his store. Call it our version of Clerks, we call it sublimely hilarious.
