Bacon Causes Evacuation of Congressman’s Office

This just in — Rep. John Boehner’s Westchester, Ohio office was evacuated on Monday afternoon, October 6 after a suspicious package was delivered. The package “was leaking an oily substance” and staffers called the Capitol police in Washington D.C. as a precaution. The Capitol police advised the staff to evacuate the building and immediately call local authorities for assistance.

Rumors of bomb threats quickly spread throughout the neighborhood as police cars and other emergency vehicles began to fill the streets. Thos rumors were quickly dispelled however, when “after an X-ray analysis, investigators determined the package contained bacon.” That’s right folks — BACON.

Apparently, someone thought it would be clever to send a box of bacon to Rep. Boehner’s office to protest his recent “yes” vote to President Bush’s $700 billion financial industry bailout plan. According to NBC affiliate WLWT in Ohio “Some critics have charged that the legislation contained unnecessary giveaways, which are sometimes referred to as ‘pork barrel‘ spending.”

Regardless of the circumstances, we here at Bacon Today stand firmly against this grotesque misuse of bacon. The candy of meats should not be used as a threat, but rather shared amongst friends as a way to peacefully resolve our differences.

Bacon love!

    Corey, I had no idea that someone had tried to use bacon as a message of hate. This kind of abuse has to be stopped. If our readers look back to the ‘Bacon Flavored Rolling Papers’ article they’ll realize that we’ve been spreading the message of bacon love since the beginning.

    “One love, one heart, let’s eat some bacon and feel alright.”

    The politicians in Washington have already stolen all of the regular folks’ money, housing, retirement savings, and everything else.

    I guess I would have to think long and hard before donating a pound (or even a strip) of bacon to one of the crooks.

    They will have to pry my last pound of bacon out of my cold, dead hands.

    Someone out there please take DocChuck’s comment a step further and Photoshop together a picture of Charlton Heston holding bacon! There’s a free t-shirt in it for you!

    Sadly, my husband can’t eat bacon anymore due to health issues. I do agree with him in his political views though.
