Well since it is “Ash” Wednesday
class=”post”>The capybara kap-i-‘bar-uh, hydrochoerus
hydrochaeris, is a semi-aquatic rodent of South and Central America. It
is the only species in its genus, which belongs to the family
Hydrochoeridae, order Rodentia.
class=”post”>When the Spanish missionaries found the
capybara in Brazil during the 16th century, they wrote to the Pope to
ask – there’s an animal here that’s scaly but also hairy, spends most
of its time in the water but occasionally comes on land; can we
classify it as a fish (and thus, the indigenous people could continue
to eat it during Lent)?. Not having a clear description of the animal
(and not wanting the petitioners to starve), the Pope agreed and
declared it to be a fish.
Jimmy also has the
for fasting from the Code of Canon Law.
