    Bacon may be eaten smoked, boiled, fried, baked, or grilled, or used as a minor ingredient to flavour dishes. Bacon is also used for barding and larding roasts, especially game, e.g. venison, pheasant. The word is derived from the Old High German bacho, meaning "buttock", "ham" or "side of bacon", and cognate with the Old French bacon.^;:*

    So they (Muslims) can strap bombs on and blow up innocent people.......or capture and torture others and cut off their heads.......And STILL go to their version of heaven.....But touching bacon sends them to hell....... Yeah....that makes sense.

    I'll betcha a donut that if 9/11 never happened then this assault with bacon would never have happened. This is the American citizenry's way of crying out against a war that has gone on longer than WWII, a government who cares more for other countries than their own people, and a lash out at the enemy. If there are peace loving muslims out there who are offended at this bacon stunt, then clean your own house of terror lest you be identified as one of them.

    Is this an oxymoron???? How can anything be defaced with Bacon.

    Think about it...when there is the free buffet and they have those massive strips of bacon. You end up taking a whole pile of bacon and then they just bring out more. I wish people hated my religion enough to bring me bacon. My religion only gets bullits and bombs.
