Yeah, it's been a while... the denial is strong with this one. For the first time since I started going in 2003, I'm missing Bonnaroo to attend a good friend's wedding.
As you may recall, I made a dare/bet with bacon last fall to wear a costume embodying his username on Friday. He agreed, contingent upon it being a part of Whoring For Whoreshack. It will look something like this:
Last Tuesday, I went to my local UPS Store. The lady behind the counter laughed at me and the contents of my package. She proceeded to tell me about a wedding she had attended where there was a bacon cake. The vows were spoken "in Klingon or Vulcan or something" and, to her dismay, "there was no mention of Jesus!" either. The deed was done; the package arrived with one of Bacon's Roo-mates a week ago.
Included in that package: 1 bacon strip costume 1 Route 66 sign (of the Arizona variety) 2 bacon neckties 2 suction cup hooks 1 pair bacon tube socks
By this time tomorrow, the package should be in Bacon's possession. By this time Friday, you will have the opportunity to see it firsthand. Consider me jealous.
I feel that this thread is necessary to document Bacon-Wrapped Bacon in all its glory, for posterity. Here's hoping that our friend Whoreshack gets a glimpse, too, wherever he may be.
Thanks in advance to all of you who share your memories and documentation of this phenomenon. Happy Bonnaroo, all of you.
I actually floated the idea of shipping curds down for Bacon to hand out on my behalf, but heard that some newer Inforooer from WI had already offered to do the same?
So there just might be Wisconsin cheese curds at brunch, just not from me. Eat at your own risk, because it sounds like they might be coming from Kaukauna, which is renowned statewide for its foul aroma.
Bacon hasn't responded to any of my texts in the past three days. I know it's plausible he's got coverage issues in a different time zone, but I also find it plausible that I might not be his favorite guy in the world today...
Any confirmation of Bacon-Wrapped Bacon sightings on the farm would be greatly appreciated.
