How does Kitty put up with Jonathan?

What does Kitty have to say?


 


How long before the bacon boom bursts?

It's not that I have anything against bacon. Really, I don't. If I happen to be at a greasy spoon and the server offers me a choice between bacon and sausage, I will take bacon.

And without bacon, a B-L-T would just be an L-T.

But what is with the world's fascination with bacon? Do we really love it so much that it has to be included in every other kind of food? Why can't bacon just be bacon?

What pushed me to the edge on this issue? I found a news story online about a place in New York called Baconry. It's where bacon meets bakery, and they're now offering 23 carat gold chocolate bacon.

As if chocolate bacon weren't superfluous enough, does it have to be sprinkled with gold dust?  By the way, this store offers "birthday bacon" which is sprinkled with candy confetti, chocolate chip bacon cookies, and gluten-free bacaroons...macaroon with bacon, I presume?

Several breweries offer bacon flavored beer. The best name? "Aporkalypse Now Oatmeal Bacon Stout," and it comes from a Canadian brewery with an appropriate name--Hogsback Brewing Company.

There's even bacon flavored lip gloss.

Enough already. Let's put bacon on the plate next to a couple of eggs, where it belongs!
