    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.

    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.

    Here is a Peanuts strip from Lucy’s early days:Peanuts (October 12, 1952)And here is a very early Pearls Before Swine, back when Rat had a longer nose and Pig had longer, straighter ears. Compare with the second strip below from four years later, where they look pretty much the same as they do today.Pearls Before Swine (January 12, 2002)Pearls Before Swine (August 31, 2006)

    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?

    @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.
