I resent beer being lumped in with cigarettes and cheese puffs. Beer, coffee, whiskey?

The pyramid is wrapped in it. Unfortunately I'm allergic.

They left off chocolate and pepperoni, too.

I don't like the sound of chocolate pepperoni.  Well, not the sound actually, but how I imagine it tastes.  It's probably pretty quiet.

I know several vegetarians who still eat bacon.  They feel as guilty as Catholics when they do but they just can't give it up.

Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

I remember at least once a Red Sox home opener landed on Good Friday. The Archbishop of the Boston diocese issued a decree that Catholics attending the game could eat hot dogs.

I don't like the sound of chocolate pepperoni.

At this winter's Cincinnati BeerFest there was a vendor with chocolate-covered bacon. I'm not all in on the "bacon goes with everything" bandwagon, but I gotta' admit this was good!

I love chocolate-covered bacon. I just bought some today, as a matter of fact.

Replace the cigarettes with cigars and the cheese puffs with steak and I'd be all for this revision!
Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.
