Bacon Articles by Lefty
Hello, culture lovers. Please cease the rattling of your programs, and if you’d like to enjoy a cough drop or lozenge, why not unwrap it now?
I was in the mood for something healthful and mentioned aloud that I was considering ordering the veggie stack, a sandwich made with grilled eggplant, among other things. “You know what’s great with that?” the helpful server proffered. “Bacon!”
Musicals have always been my passion. When I was a kid, I eschewed Transformers and even Smurfs to watch “The Music Man” and “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” over and over again. I have written several musicals including “Survivor: The Musical” and others.
Jim Gaffigan, the bard of Bacon, said that there aren’t many ways to prepare bacon: “You can fry it, or you can get trichinosis.” This is one of many reasons bacon is such a suitable food for non-chefs. As it turns out, however, there are other options out there if your frying pan is in the repair shop.
Man has been keeping track of time for as long as- well, we actually don’t know when man started keeping track of time, because before that there was no time, so there was no way to keep track, right? But suffice to say it’s been a long time.
With Halloween just around a month-long corner, it’s time to start laying the foundation for your bacon-themed Halloween costumes.

After all, you don’t want to simultaneously ruin Halloween and bacon, thus bringing disgrace to sweet and savory in one fell swoop, now do you?
Depending on whom you ask, pigs travel either in droves, herds, litters, farrows (for piglets) or sounders (for wild pigs). But anyone who’s ever ordered of the Sides section of a breakfast menu knows that bacon comes in rashers.
It had been a while since I’d seen bacon on the big screen and it made me wonder what my prospects are for finding bacon on the small screen at home. Here, for your eating pleasure:
Just as when you’re sure you’ve met that special someone it’s important to meet the parents, so too should you be familiar with bacon’s extended family, just in case you’re at a Denny’s and someone tries to serve you serrano ham, you can storm out in outrage.
How can the same meat yield so generously and yet conceal so much? Sometimes it seems bacon, like “Lost,” begs as many questions as it satisfies. Maybe in the future instead of “You’re begging the question!” we’ll say, “You’re bacon the question!”
