Mmm…Bacon Doughnut

If I had any money, here’s where I’d put it

Grilling Time Again

I love it when July 4th falls on a Friday. It’s the perfect 3-day weekend where you actually start the partying on day one and either rage on through, or have a full two days to recover. Believe me, I’ve done both. I was looking for something to spice up...

Organic Bacon Treats

I have to be honest with you, readers. My roommate, Marianne, can be a little stingy with the treats. Sometimes I go to the office with her to help out, and for all my efforts I get, like, two treats the whole day. It’s pretty unfair, considering all the support...

Can you imagine a world with Toaster Bacon?

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

Bacon Hippos

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...
