My brother's unintentionally insulting Thai curry

Went out with my sister, my brother, and his wife last night. While the rest of us made rather conservative choices (spicy beef salad for me and a couple mainstream curry choices for the two women) my brother order (get this) pork massaman curry?

"Well, what's wrong with that?" you may ask.

You need to understand what "massaman" ("mussamun," "mussaman") means in Thai. It means "Moslem." Now, Muslims observe pretty much the same Kosher laws as the Jews, meaning, for one thing, absolutely no pork, ever. 

My brother realized what he had done before I fully explained it and we all got a laugh out of what they must be saying in the kitchen about his rather insulting order.
