Boys and girls…
It’s time again to delve into my bacon fascination.
For those new to these posts…
I need to make something clear…
I am not obsessed with bacon, per se.
I am, however, fascinated by people’s obsession with bacon…
And the myriad ways that obsession expresses itself.
Here are but a few examples…
Some more alarming than others!
There seems to be no limit to how bacon can be inserted into people’s daily lives…
As well as their tummies.
The range of bacon uses is only limited…
By the imagination of the bacon users…
And, presumably, the pork marketing boards.
They provide bacon lovers…
And those of us who study them…
Countless hours of harmless fun…
As bacon sits there…
On a plate…
Waiting to kill them.
And most of all…
Thank you once again to the many friends & readers who have sent me bacon-related photos and suggestions.
I couldn’t have done it without you… or people very much like you.

Most women are pretty darned sure that most men are crazy.
But do we have to prove it to them so darned often?
I mean really.
Come on, guys!
We’re making it far to easy for them!
We could at least let’s try to make it challenging.
Get a grip, men.
Let’s not hand it to them on a silver platter.

Wake up and smell the bacon!
You know it was just a matter of time before Oscar Meyer would come up with an app for this!
As we say down in Arkansas, “Yew just cain’t make this stuff up!
Normally, one wouldn’t think insults would be a source of fondness and nostalgia.
The way phrases are turned in The South makes you rethink all of your notions about enjoying otherwise unpleasant things.
Here are a handful of my favourites…
Back in Papaw’s day, they would have kept him upstairs.
He ain’t hooked up right.
He’s about half a bubble off plumb.
His cheese done slid right off his cracker.
I can explain it to you, but I can’t understand it for you.
I wonder what she would charge to haunt a house.
No decent woman can afford to be seen with him.
‘Nough to gag a maggot.
She talks just to hear her head rattle.
She’s three pickles shy of a quart.
That man ain’t got the decency to die.
You’ll have to look over him, he ain’t had no home trainin’.
(The Late Great Popcorn Sutton – bootlegger)
Your hair looks pretty good but your clothes needs something done.
She could start an argument in an empty house.
That girl’s not wearing enough fabric to flag down a train.
He’s old as sin and twice as ugly.
You lie like a dirty cur dog.
That dress is ugly as homemade sin.
He don’t got all what belongs to him.
She has her nose so high in the air she could drown in a rainstorm.
He’s as windy as a sack full of farts.
He’s country as a bowl of grits.
He’s 10 pounds of manure in a 5 pound bag.
Useless as a screen door (or cat flap) on a submarine.
She looks like Death suckin’ a sponge.
Here are three of the most effective yet subtle insults. When said properly, they can be devastating. And if you’re not from The South, you probably won’t even know you’re being insulted…
You’re not from around here, are you?
Bless your heart.

I’m paraphrasing somewhat…
But not by much…
He was talking about freedom…
He was talking about Scotland…
He was talking about ridding themselves from oppression…
But he may as well have been talking about…
Eating bacon is practically a constitutional right.
It’s practically a religion.
Yes. It’s true. These people had a ‘bacon theme’ wedding.
Why, do you ask? Well…
It sounded like a really good way to tell the world they are committed to each other…
And to bacon.
Thanks, as always, to my friends and readers who send me bacon-related photos.
I couldn’t have done it without you. Or people very much like you.
