Ever wish that flavors of sugary delight and pork sizzlin' goodness could just linger and linger on and on?

Well, dreamer, time to break reverie, because your vision has arrived -- I'm talkin' MAPLE- BACON LOLLIS! Glee and smoked meat rolled into a long-lasting lollipop. Vive la Baconian!

Regardless of whether you place this on a tier of terrible, or conversely, as the only food you want while stranded on a deserted island -- it is a compelling study regarding the fusion of of sugar and meat on a stick.

Goodbye, Jack. You have been a sweet, wonderful, loyal horse and friend. I love when you rub your forehead up and down on my palm because you are happy to see me and because you think it feels nice. I love you and will miss you so much. I know you are in pain and life is not fun anymore, and letting you go is the kindest thing I can do; but it's so difficult because of how kind, trusting, and loving you have been to me.

New roller coaster - 97 degree drop...

Yes, 7 degrees steeper than pure vertical.

And now -- predict --

If I rode the "Fahrenheit" roller coaster, I'd

(a) barf until infinity freezes over
(b) weep as I watched g-forces punch a hole through what was once my body
(c) need to call mom for a change of clothes
(d) leave only a small dollop of sweat on the seat after I spontaneously combusted
(e) any or all combinations of the above
(f) other _______________________________

Cheat option! Watch the vid!

When your pork says "Cheese" - or smileys part deux...

Okay, must admit -- I am quite fascinated by the concept of lunch meat with a smiley face. Maybe it would taste better, and it certainly would make things more fun when crafting a sandwich -- especially if you used mustard as a weapon. Oh, damn, regular lunch meat is starting to seem all mediocre now...

And for all my vegetarian friends -- would you fancy a soylami smiley loaf? ;-D

So, gentle reader, if you are willing to overlook a slight (20%) preservative, filler, and artificial color issue (the sign does, however, claim this delicacy to be a daring 80% pork)...bon apetit!

Son of Irony 2.0

Emoticons are the virtual world's mode of expression regarding what one is feeling, yes? Well, now you can wear a mask on your melon to light up a' la emoticon -- giving your actual emotions a touch of, oh, je ne sais quoi. And if you are trying to hide a discomforting emotion or taste of failure, I suppose you could use the emoticon mask to conceal what you're actually feeling.

Is this bot-face type of scenario a touch unsettling or have you already Googled this for purchase?

The New Yorker's Caption Contest's Winning Entry...

The New Yorker's cartoons are known for their pithy bon mots...and I really liked this one because of the simplicity of the caption overlying its complexity. To me, in a best case scenario, it is a metaphor of the nonchalance we sometimes have about fragility of our world. At its most disconcerting, it is an analogy exemplifying the danger of our ignorance.
