I can't make out the logo. Where do I get one of those posters?
I stole it from my sister off facebook. I think the logo is "Billy's Custom Gun Works"  Don't think it's an original there, either...

After much searching I believe I have found the original: http://www.somethingofthatilk.com/index.php?id=219

Now we just need to persuade him to make a poster. Or maybe some classy metal signs. Classy, like bacon.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Also note, didn't it say these people ate bacon every day and only had a 29% increase?  Most of us don't eat bacon that much.

Yep.  I don't even recall the last time I ate bacon.  The thing that caught my eye was pancreatic cancer.  I don't know if you've ever known anyone who's had it but it's a particularly nasty form of cancer.

Pancreatic cancer got my dad at age 60 about 11 years ago.  His doctor sent him to the hospital thinking it was a gall bladder problem.  He died 9 days later - only 7 days after being diagnosed.  The doctor told us that only about 5% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive longer than 6 months.

I do my best to do all things in moderation - but we all have to die of something.  If it's bacon that gets me, so be it.
...it's liquid bread, it's good for you!
