If You Insist

I ran into the room, said, "Do I smell bacon?",
but couldn't decipher the smirk Jim was making.
"Sure, if that's what you wanna call it!
Hey, why not stuff your gullet?",
and like a true American I was taken.

    Well bacon isn't EVERYTHING... just the only thing that matters (ha ha ha... kidding!). Seriously though I like all kinds of food. They could have been grilling asparagus and I would have been just as elated as the bacon :)

    I was always curious if what we Americans call "Canadian Bacon" is at all the same thing IN Canada? In any case I appreciate you stopping by, as always!
