Just sent to me, the result of the most important election last night:
Man, it wasn’t even close. But how could it be? You can’t defeat bacon. You can’t even hope to try.
(Thanks, Mitchell, for sending that along)
Ahahaha, brilliant :D
You should have seen that coming, John. The Fries Cat wouldn’t have been nearly as successful as your invention, the Bacon Cat.
I prefer fries with bacon. Can’t we all get along?
Bacon cheese fries…. with chili. A delicious heart attack.
In the middle of such important stuff, there is still ridiculousness. I love it. Be happy it’s just the names we’re laughing at.
Oh, damn the partisanship! If Bacon and Fries can’t go together, I don’t want to live in a democracy anymore!!
Betcha *that* riding used Diebold electronic voting machines. No way does my beloved starch fall that far behind bacon. That being said, bacon in poutine sounds like an awesome idea.
But what if the fries were cooked in bacon grease?
OK – Obama beat McCain, Republicans lost seats in the House and Senate, and Al frickin’ Frankin may even still win. All in all, that was a very bad night for my side.
However, there is _no_ way you are taking bacon to the Democratic Party. Them’s fightin’ words.
My god… it’s full of grease!
The former Premier of Tasmania was named Jim Bacon. His wife was Honey Bacon. He died of lung cancer after a lifetime of being smoky Bacon.
That is hilarious…can you imagine the smear campaigns both ran???
Wrong for lunch.
Wrong for District 14.

Actually, it was mostly timing. America, tired of burgers and fries, was ready for change, and the voters of Colorado were not afraid to embrace America’s favorite food that cooks in its own fat.

Back in the ’80s I remember a chain that cooked it’s turkey sandwitches in the same deep fat fryer that they cooked the fries in. Turkey flavored fries.
Bacon was obviously the target of McCain’s promises to cut pork spending…
I knew Bacon was a Democrat!

Not sure why my linky didn’t work. The link is http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/bizarre/6098199.html
Okay, but did anyone send you this link?

Bacon is unbeatable, espeically since Fries first name is probably French. Nothing French will ever beat an all-American food, not even in newly-purple Colorado.
dammit! now i desperately want bacon cheese fries with a side of ranch. curse you, john scalzi!
Bacon only won because Spam wasn’t in the race.
Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, baked beans and Spam…
I googled to see if this was merely a good joke or an actual race, and turned up a page with a link that seemed to be labelled “Bacon Eats Fries In First Debate.” Turned out it was actually “Bacon Beats Fries In First Debate.” Link: http://www.denverpost.com/election/ci_10907268?source=data
Journey beat Bacon for District Judge here in Kansas.
But a trip versus a snack is different from a snack versus a snack.
but fries with cheese and bacon? beyond heart-stoppingly awesome!
Y’know, John, I finally got hold of some of that Bacon Salt™ you’ve been touting… Used it up in about a week!
Come on now, that wasn’t a fair fight. Everyone knows that Bacon is the unbeatable champion of the world!
