Will Homer make it through the crisis?

As did I....I was able to purchase said bacon, by selling an old ferral mouser hangabout, and a basket case ‘81 FXWG. ;-)
The way prices are going, bacon will be eaten by those who own the future.
“The future belongs to those who eat BACON!”
BACON! It’s what’s for dinner.
we will burn food because it makes the greens wet and stout.
I was watching “How It’s Made” on Discovery Channel.
They had a segment on how pork bellies are processed into packaged bacon - quite an automated process.
My 5 yr old grandson astutely asked “grandpa, how do they get the bacon off the pigs?”
I don’t have the Bacon List, but *somebody* should.
Eat more bacon, but be careful, bacon is a dangerous weapon and you can be arrested and lose your liberty if you have some bacon and a specially-protected minority group member sees it and yells and moans to the police.
