    Mmmm. bacon. #2 Son’s gf doesn’t like pork of any kind — can you imagine? She’s a winner in every other way, though, so we let her off on the bacon thing.

    LOL. !! Ahem, there was a time I wouldn’t mind me a piece of Kevin Bacon – back in the Footloose days – but then THEN I saw him in the TERRIBLE, HORRIFIC, NEVERABLETOFORGET, SAD, GRUESOME movie “Sleepers”, thus he will never appeal to me again… guess that’s the downside of being an excellent actor…

    When are you heading back to Amewica?

    And here I thought we’d read a punchline about Nicholas Cage BEING nuts.
    There is no fair substitute for bacon. None.

    Funny about pork and the cultural thing. I remember a post where you emptied your freezer, and me thinking “Americans must eat a LOT of pork” confirmed with reading other U.S. blogs, and therefore familiarizing myself with the unfamiliar term of “pulled pork”.
    While our national advertising campaign in Australia is to “throw another shrimp on the barbie”, I notice that “give the pig another turn on the rotisserie” might well apply to Greece, the Phillipines, and New Guinea amongst others.
    Being vegetarians our mates have added “wish you’d give that sad little chick pea burger the flick” to the barbie lingo.*
    *translation: To the barbecue linguistics our friends have added the desire to see our culinary attempt at ethically sound food practices end up tossed in the garden where all things that contain sprouts belong.
    My daughter calls our vegie sausagies “mockages”. She is a a turned vegetarian defecting to the other side. The smell of sizzling bacon did her in.

  9. I suspect I could live in Turkey the rest of my life and never crave pork. Sushi, maybe.

  10. Pardon me while I make a quick run to my favorite neighborhood taco shop for a carnitas burrito.

    You just reminded me that I have a packet of frozen bacon in the freezer that I could have some fun with. If I was a mench, I’d send it to you.

  12. I too am a big lover of pork -provided it isn’t of the governmental kind. Oh sheesh, I lied as sometimes I suppose even I, in my hidden away location in this gully in central Pennsylvania, probably have benefited now and again from some of that pork too, haven’t I? But bacon -nirvana!
    Now, you have to visit my place so you can pick up a much deserved Overlord award. I’m sure you can wave your wand and create lots and lots of ways to make use of that award, can’t you?

  13. Email me your address, and I’ll send you a vacuum-sealed package of Spanish ham…that’s how the Spanish exchange students smuggle it into the U.S. 😀
