Bacon Pirates: Mystery solved

Way back in aught-nine, I came across an impressive piece of artwork, but could not discover its meaning. Was it the logo for a new band? A bacon-themed apparel company? A sea-faring crew of pork consumers? Today the mystery was…

Thank you, National Pig Association of the United Kingdom, for giving us all a heart attack imagining life with a bacon shortage! Insert squeal... The real blame, however, goes to our hyper crazy global media outlets that took the title…

Bacon Ice Cream on the Go

Santa Barbara has seen a rash of mobile food eateries pop up in the past year or so, as seen here in John Dickson's Food Truck Guide. In my opinion, this is one of the greatest things that can happen…

This one made me gag a little

Wow. I don't know what to say about KFC this morning. I once got really sick after eating KFC wings, so am perhaps over-cautious about their products. And I do admit their snackers look good to me, but they have…

Bacon as Currency
