Bacon mints are the worst, I imagine slightly worse than the gum.

I'm attending the first Baconfest Chicago this weekend and am very excited. Tickets sold out in 30 minutes. http://baconfestchicago.com/

Finally something appetizing on this blog! For too long us meat-eaters have felt shut out and ignored.

P.S. Long live Baconfest Chicago! (I thought the tickets were already sold out.)

Maybe bacon would have made your GVP more tasty at lunch!

Man can turn a phrase, I'll give him that. But the bacon, the bacon I'll keep for myself. Mmmmm...

I'm disappointed this bit (ahem) didn't include a Jim Gaffigan clip.
