Do you know what happens if you google "quotes about bacon?"
The first result is an Ogden Nash quote which is actually about bacon (score one for Google).
The second result is Francis Bacon quotes (minus one for Google. Tally = zero).
Sixth down the list was my winner, "Top 10 Quotes About Bacon From Television." With that I give you...
“Special day! Oh, what have I forgotten now? Now, don’t panic. Is it Bacon Day? No, that’s crazy talk!” Homer, The Simpsons
My friend Anne today sent me a link to what is quite possibly the most uplifting Web site in all the land - http://bacontoday.com/.
With such headlines as "Courageous Firefighters Save Bacon Before it Happens," about two little piggies rescued from a well (wait for it...I know, funny, right?) and a recipe for Turbaconducken (Turducken wrapped in bacon, naturally), this is truly a site that has the power to bring hope and unity to a nation torn asunder.
To restore a former glory and recall a history not filled with hatred and spite, but with tolerance and forgiveness.
This, my friends, is the power of bacon.
Bow your head before it's awesomeness.
