Forget The Milk And Cookies

Forget The Milk And Cookies

But Santa, Little Billy cried, won't bacon grease get on your nice white gloves?

Ho ho ho, Little Billy, don't worry, the jolly old elf replied. They're latex. You wouldn't believe the slop I see in some of these houses. Anyway, milk and cookies are full of cholesterol and sugar. Here, have some fried pork fat with a bit of meat yourself. Ho ho ho!
What will the marketeers think of next? Does this billboard make you any more likely to buy bacon? (Vegetarians are not allowed to vote.)

I know advertising is part of a market economy. My firm advertises. But all of it is hogwash (except, of course, my own).

Smart remark.

I am with you. Although there are some wonderful types of bacon that I would buy.

Bacon is big.
I've seen adds just for bacon.
When Elenka isn't looking, I like to 'sample' it. My mantra: please don't tell me what to put into my body. My choice. I joke, but I'm quite vigilant about goes in my mouth.
Homer Simpson might say, "Mmmmmm Bacon!"

Oh humbug. A bit of bacon every now and then as a treat is marvellous!

I totally agree with you about ads and marketing, but I do have some bacon in the fridge.

I imagine the only time I have had bacon is when I am at a buffet in a hotel.

Bacon's certainly a welcome addition to a meal!
