Another day, another bacon shirt. Actually, I can't complain about it really. I love bacon and bacon related apparel and accessories. Just the other day I found a guy making Epic Meal Time
shirts and ordered a bunch. Keep and eye out for that.
Thursdays is my Warhammer night (or, as I like to put it, conclusive proof that I have no life and will never get a girlfriend) and afterwards we usually roll into the Pacific Coast Brewery
across the street where we are treated like kings, or at least like regular customers who have a reputation for eating and drinking a lot and leaving pretty good tips. It is a typical sports bar/micro brewery so popular and prevalent in Northern California that you can't throw a crust of bread across a street without hitting one (they serve free bread with meals, BTW). Anyway, the point of this tangent is the meal I have been favoring lately is called the Danger Dog. This aptly named (dangerous to your arteries, at least) entree is a bratwurst wrapped up in bacon and served on a bun. There is some green stuff on there somewhere in an attempt to convince the eater that they are being slightly more health than just eating 800 calories of grease, fat, and carbs, but I couldn't tell you what they are.
Well this is certainly a twist. While searching for anything on danger dogs I thought I had found yet another lame garage band with a funny name cluttering up MySpace, but instead found out that Danger Dog
is actually a reviewer of heavy metal music. Funny. Since I have been writing movie review lately on my own blog TheNerdBlog I have to say that is pretty cool. However, I think my general rule of never listening to random music I find on the interweb is going to be extended to not reading random music reviewers I find on the web. Somehow I feel I won't really feel a connection to the writer and his subject matter.
Here is an interesting article on the 10 most dangerous dog breeds
. Not a lot of surprises here. Most of these dogs if you see coming at you you had best run like hell. The funniest thing here is the 7th most dangerous dog is supposed to be a Chow Chow
. I can't think of a more embarrassing way to die than to be killed by a circular fur ball like that. Of course, any time I see a Chow Chow I immediately think of Muffit II
, the robotic daggot from Battlestar Galactica (the first series).
Wow. I was trying to get back on track talking about bacon and found the greatest bacon article ever
. This Uncyclopedia rocks! I'm never using Wikipedia again!
Well, looks like I am a liar. I just looked up something on why bacon is not considered kosher and of course the first thing that I came across is this bacon Wikipedia article
. The article talks a lot about what religions ban bacon and where in the assorted holy books the prohibition creeps up, but doesn't really get into an actual reason. There are a couple theories that sound like some brainiac talking out of his ass, if you know what I mean. I was Skyping with a Jewish friend of mine who is very kosher earlier tonight. I should have asked her. Of course no bacon is kind of wasted on her as she is vegetarian.
