For G*ds sake?! A Meat Hall of Fame?!

A quote: "For instance, Ted Sloan, who died in 1987, was the inventor of the "hot-dog highway." Gee all this time I thought Kerouac was the inventor of.... oh never mind.

Reminds of the Simpsons...

Homer (to Bart about to eat bacon at breakfast): "Butter up that bacon boy."

(Bart butters his bacon before eating it.)

Homer (to Bart as he is about to eat sausage): "Bacon up that sausage."

(Bart wraps bacon around the sausage and then eats it.)

Bart (as he is cheweing, utters): "Dad, my heart hurts."

I can't believe that the editors let that title stick "Four top dogs inducted into meat industry hall of fame"

Mmmmm dog meat!

I guess I shouldn't comment on the Journal's editors afterall they printed the headline "Friends remember Clark as a real down to earth person" (or something along those lines) when the Space Shuttle Columbia exploded killing Wisconsinite Laurel Clark.

I remember back in the early 90s the Green Bay Press Gazette wrote an article about former Gov. Tommy Thompson's line item veto power. The was supposed to read "Thompson's Pen Is A Sword" Instead the headline Read Thompson's PenIs A Sword" I guess it was a typesetting error.

It cracked me up when I was in Madion, WI a few weeks ago that Oscar Mayer was the corporate namesake for that city's Center for the Performing Arts. Must be a carnivore's (and cheeselover's) paradise.

Did you miss the heading, "First Wiener Tunnel?"

In Madrid I saw the Museo de Jamon - or "Museum of Ham." The Spanish are nuts over ham. Ruffles sells ham flavored chips there - they taste like barbeque. The museum just looked like a bunch of ham hanging from the ceiling. The picture's not mine.

Tell me about it. I lived in Madrid for a semester in college. I don't eat meat and got very skinny after a few months of struggling to find decent food. Spain's an awesome place, though.

Mmmmmm...bacon.
This thread made me think of a great Simpsons episode where Lisa was trying to explain to Homer the animal origins of different meats.

I don't remember Lisa's exact quote, but she told Homer that bacon, ham and pork all come from pigs. Homer then scratched his head and said something like... "hmmm....all those wonderful delicacies all come from the same animal?"

I think the same episode had some goofy character explaining to Lisa that he's a "vegan to the fifth degree" since he doesn't "eat anything that casts a shadow." funny stuff

..and like just about everything else in life, the Simpsons chime in:

"We live in a society of laws. Why do you think I took you to all those Police Academy movies? For fun? Well, I didn't hear anybody laughin', did you?"
