I love comedian Jim Gaffigan’s take on Bacon – he calls it “the most beautiful thing on earth.” He says: “You want to know how good bacon is? To improve other foods, they wrap it in bacon. And those bits of bacon! Bits of bacon are like the fairy dust of the food community. You don’t like this baked potato? (Sprinkles bacon bits). Now it’s your favorite part of the meal.”
Gaffigan’s love for bacon would make him an ideal candidate for mayor of Bacon City, a real Texas city that will exist for only two days this month when Vernon, Texas, renames itself for the weekend of Sept. 16-17. They will appoint a mayor of Bacon City, and the honor includes $600 in spending money. Jim could really bring home the bacon with that kind of cash.
