No one can resist the allure of BACON!
A Muslim who claimed he was forced to cook pork products has lost his discrimination lawsuit against Scotland Yard after it was discovered he enjoys a good bacon roll.
It really is true – Bacon makes everything better (and yes, Bacon should always be capitalized. Always.).

The Hope and Change Presidency. The economy, foreign policy, domesticm policy, Afstan, cash for clunkers, spendulous, cap and trade, health care reform – pick whichever seems the most important to you and run with it.

And yes, I get to have these opinions because I lived in Louisiana for 10 years and watched my tax dollars get poured down the drain on NOLA.
I do miss King Cake, however.
Unless, of course, you’re talking about Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, or perhaps a military veteran.
