Who says Americans don't do irony?

Following from a friend and the internet.

In response to a popular US radio talk show host's observation that, as an Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination to her according to Leviticus 18:22, the following response was posted by a Jewish professor.
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination ... End of debate.
I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.
1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. What do you think would be a fair price for her?
And so on. The conclusion is unimprovable: "Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging."
