BACON IN THE NEWS
Aside from Kevin Bacon being selected for a new Tremors reboot pilot, it appears that bacon has made it to Congressional testimony this week. Interesting article in Business Insider:
"Patrick Leahy, a top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, on Wednesday questioned a federal judgeship nominee's ability to interpret Supreme Court precedent over a tweet about wanting a constitutional right to marry bacon."Back in 2015, Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett tweeted a satirical comment, basically saying that same-sex marriage was a slippery slope and that he'd support marrying his bacon.
Funny - if you look at the tweet, 76 people "loved" it at that point in time.
This is pretty funny, and reminiscent of the young man in the UK (about whom I've written previously) who changed his name to "Bacon Double Cheeseburger" and that his fiance was having a little trouble with that.
In other news, one of my favorite Hells Kitchen bars in New York, Bar Bacon, is opening a new location in the West Village in NYC.
