Well your shirt is sorta of close to the color bacon…
BLT. Bacon, Lettuce and Tiger.
Coincidence? Just this afternoon, I was sitting around having beer and pizza with a couple of ER docs. As one might imagine, conversation with such folks can get a little weird at times. And today’s chat included, in some detail, the apparent fact that severely burned human flesh can often smell strikingly like bacon. It does odd things to one’s appetite.
Tigers don’t work 8 hours a day to earn the money for bacon. They go straight to the source.
No, but you are MEAT!
When European missionaries first became plentiful in the Southern Pacific, the Islanders referred to them as “long pigs”. You can read as much or as little into that as your political, social, religious, and/or ethnic bent allows.
I wonder why burned human smells like bacon, because burned pig doesn’t.

A nice piece of bacon!
The great irony is that a recent fan strip series of grown-up Calvin (and his wife Susie) is called “Hobbes and Bacon.” The “Bacon” is their daughter whose nickname is from the philosopher Francis Bacon.
Is Hobbes calling Calvin a pig?
Calvin is “cooked”!
@Rode Madder: Yes, the early Rat and Pig had “real” arms, and Pig’s head was shaped like a pear. Also, Pig’s personality was yet to be developed. It’s interesting to see how new strips evolve in the early days, months, and years.
I once heard someone refer to the human body as a “meat suit”…
Actually, “long pig” in the context of the pepperoni on the pizza was how that aspect of the conversation got started.
When I used to eat bacon… It made me feel sick so I don’t have it anymore.
