    I spent years doing this music thing, kept at it long enough to release a big vinyl box set, tour Transylvania, play a Britney Spears song in a packed symphony concert hall, play in a salt mine 100 meters underground not once but twice, sing lead on a cover of Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy", get reviewed in a Russian edition of Men's Health etc.

    Then last week I spent about an hour frying bacon and melting chocolate to pour over that bacon. That got me more attention from women and made me feel more like a star than over two decades of music ever did.

    Damit. I don't even like chocolate.

    So, what else is better than music?

    All foodies should be marooned on a desert island where the only things to eat are seaweed and sand.

    Bacon will kill you quicker than rock, and roll.

    It's chocolate and bacon. Of course they're gonna love that. It's science.

    The question is does bacon and chocolate pay the bills? If it does, then go for it!

    Bacon fat is the best treatment for ebony fingerboards.

    Oh sorry, wrong thread, that was for the musical misinformation thread. :bag:

    It was while standing in line to take a whiz at Lilith Fair in 1999 that I realized there was more money to be made in managing portable toilets than continuing to play bass in a Skynard tribute band. Today my company proudly supplies porta-potties to art festivals, renaissance fairs, and Star Trek conventions throughout eastern South Dakota. Our motto: "Your Sh@t Is Our Bread and Butter".

    Exactly. Why did it take me so long to figure this out, though?

    Please tell us you were playing in that Skynard cover band *at* the Lilith fair. I'd love to hear how that went over, lol. :hyper:

    So melting chocolate and pouring it on bacon makes someone a "foodie?"

    Or...here's the start of a syllogism which I find appealing, somehow.

    The major premise is something along the lines of this:

    If tequila makes her clothes fall off, then chocolate-covered bacon makes...
