Can you imagine a world with Toaster Bacon?

In 1962, Arnold Barach dared to dream of a bright future, a world filled with ultrasonic dishwashers, electronic teaching machines, and yes, toaster bacon. Of course! It’s genius! Pre-cooked bacon sealed in aluminum pouches that can be easily re-heated by merely...

The Bacon Shop

Internet, I love you. You let people do and say whatever they want, and you don’t judge them for it. If people want to shout their political views, you give them a soapbox to stand on. If they want to share their beautiful artwork, you provide them a virtual...

Why I’m Voting for Barack

In the tradition of seeing the Virgin Mary on your tortilla or the Shroud of Turin on your toast, this nice lady saw a vision of hippos in her rashers. And I think this may be a true miracle, because not one but ALL FOUR bacon slices revealed the portly African beast,...

American (Bacon) Graffiti

How bored are kids today when they go out and deface a public phone? And what does it say about our society when they’ve ceased to use swear words or gang affiliations, and begun to idolize bacon? Is it a sign of a lazy, slovenly generation? Or is it totally...

Birthday Bacon

As I mentioned yesterday, we had one heck of a party to celebrate our good friend Naseem last weekend. Wine tasting was followed by wine drinking, followed by many taxi-cabs and occasionally getting shushed by my husband for talking too loud. (Me?!) Dinner was held at...

Kevin Bacon: Side Note

My husband was so mad that I didn’t include Tremors in Kevin Bacon’s list of hits. I was all, “I think it can be lumped in with his late-eighties slump.” And he’s like, “Nuh-uh. Tremors was made in the nineties.” And it turns...
