Yes...? :D


Let's see...Wikipedia (who someone recently told me is my friend) says:

Back bacon is traditionally prepared from brined, center cut boneless pork loin. It is much leaner than American/streaky bacon. It is sometimes called Irish bacon or Canadian bacon, but should not be confused with the round, sliced, smoked ham product called "Canadian Bacon" in much of the United States. In some parts of central Canada, back bacon is primarily prepared and sold as peameal bacon. Although it was originally rolled in ground dried yellow peas, it is now almost exclusively rolled in more readily available cornmeal.

Oooh, that peameal bacon actually sounds interesting!


What exactly is Canadian Back Bacon (Peameal Bacon)?

Gord's Great Canadian Bacon Company has searched for the finest quality and absolutely the best tasting USDA approved boneless cured pork loin (Peameal Bacon) in Canada. Peameal Bacon is a boneless cured pork loin rolled in cornmeal, not what is commonly known in the United States as "Canadian Bacon" which is basically a smoked ham. This unique product of extraordinary quality is now available to you exclusively through Gord's Great Canadian Bacon Company.

Features

* Low in fat
* The only salt-reduced peameal bacon recognized by the Canada Food Inspection Agency
* Slow cured for a better taste and more flavorful peameal
* Versatile menu options
* Available thick or thin sliced, or if you prefer - roast size unsliced

Benefits
* Healthy eating for your family
* Consistent superior quality and flavor every time - you'll always get what you pay for
* Serve it at any meal, breakfast, lunch dinner

Ach, food is food and it's all good! :D

There's a chain called The Golden Griddle up here, and they serve these English muffins topped with back bacon and eggs benedict. It's awesome. Also, these muffins are available as part of their weekend breakfast buffet. That buffet is dangerously amazing.

Doesn't Eggs Benedict sort of imply Canadian Bacon?
Poop is funny.

I always figured it was poached eggs with the hollandaise sauce on top, and maybe some herbs sprinkled too.

Well, you're saucier than most I've seen. ;)


I've never frenched a potato, but I did follow a friend's advice once and put one in my speedos on the beach.

Too bad I forgot the part about putting it in front. :oops:

Awright, so a Redneck Nerd in a bowling shirt was sitting in a Waffle House
drinking Lone Star beer, talking religion and politics for all the world to hear.

"I don't want no damn French fries" he bellowed, "Cheese-eating Surrender Monkeys, fuck them."
So Miss Betty Jo told him to shut the fuck up or get out, there's kids eating here, you filthy cocksucker.

The Redneck jumped up to take a swing, but got his bootheel hooked on the stool and fell forward
across the counter, flailing wildly with his arms, knocking coffee cups and syrup bottles about,
and one of his pearl snaps got caught in Miss Betty's cleavage, pulling her pink blouse down and ripping
off all the buttons.

Miss Betty screamed and went to whacking him with a pitcher of ice water, and he started to scream
when the lemons got in his eye. That caused old man Koenig over in the corner to start screaming, too,
which he did when he got scared or confused, or had a flash back to Double-yuh Double-yuh Two,
and remembered that little French whore that had given him the syph and caused his wife to divorce him
when he got back home and marry Eddie Cantrall.

Sensing trouble, me and Carl lit up smokes and put our hands protectively over our coffee cups ...

I was expecting a punchline... But it was an interesting read nonetheless.

Can't say I'd call that a punchline, just a dry note to end on. Unless I'm missing something totally huge here. I can appreciate dry humour for sure, but this didn't even make me chuckle.

Here's a test...


What is the difference between a pregnant woman and a lightbulb?



















You can unscrew a lightbulb.

That's funny, I don't care who you are.

Omphalos, I'm not even dignifying that with a response, and Freak, that was pretty good! :D
