My buddy, Kelly, over at Vegetable Soup posted today about her (and the kids’ ) love of tofu bacon. Towards the end of the post she mentions that her bacon and dark chocolate truffles are two things that she’ll be stingy with when it comes to sharing with the children. I couldn’t help but recall an episode of The Simpsons where Homer is driving down the road and a bacon truck and fudge truck collide… Here’s how the dialog went:
Dear Lord, as I think of you dressed in white with your splendid beard, I am reminded of Colonel Sanders, who is now seated at your right hand, shoveling popcorn chicken into thy mouth. Lord, could you come up with a delicious news taste treat like he did? I command you.
[Homer closes his eyes and claps his hands, and his car swerves into oncoming traffic. A hot fudge truck overturns, flooding the road, and then a Johnny Bench’s Pre-cooked Bacon truck smashes into it. A piece of fudge-coated bacon lands on Homer’s windshield, and he grabs it and takes a bite.]
Mmmm. Move over, eggs. Bacon just got a new best friend — fudge.
In finding the dialog for this post, I stumbled upon this unholy creation:
A chocolate bar with bacon bits… it made me gag at first, but maybe it’s good… From what I read you can pick one up at a Whole Foods Market.
