    Homer: Wait, wait, wait Lisa honey, are you saying you’re never going to eat any animal again?
    What about bacon?
    Lisa: No!
    Homer: Ham?
    Lisa: No!
    Homer: Pork chops ?!?
    Lisa: Dad! Those all come from the same animal.

  • Turkey bacon is a travesty, yet all around me try to foist it upon me! From where does turkey bacon derive its flavor? Perhaps from… BACON ITSELF?!!!

    Let us also remember Veggie Bacon! Lots of us eat it and its primary taste comes from the same stuff as that of the partially cremated animal corpses – smoke flavor.
