Steven Wright. Followed by Bob Hope. George Burns. Betty White. John Ritter was a good transition man between the old slapstick and the wit. Johnny Carson was dry and clean. Betty White and Carl Reiner have gone to the dark side, but I'm thinking about forgiving them.

George Carlin could be really funny if he would cut out the offensive language.

Rats! I forgot where this post is going.. Actually, it was obvious a few years ago that we don't need sexual nuances and bad words for humor.

That's what I realized.

Except there's one problem: he's deceased.

Harvey Kormen ... and in that vein: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFyVs_766S4&feature=share

A riff from the 70's that seems apropos given the govt. shutdown going on right now.
"I feel sarcasm is the lowest form of wit." "It is so low, in fact, that Miss Manners feels sure you would not want to resort to it yourself, even in your own defense. We do not believe in retaliatory rudeness." Judith Martin

Carlin was funnier dirty than most comedians are clean, and I prefer clean comedians (check out Jim Gaffigan!)

Spinach at it's nastyist: brown, from a can, and smelling like decaying seaweed.  We used to get this served for hot lunch in elementary school.

Did you go to school in the Pacific Northwest?  It sounds like our cafeteria.

Everything is better with bacon.

Nothing is better with bacon, it ruins everything it goes near.

I'm in between. I love good bacon. Not too crispy, definitely on the soft side, but not rubbery. Preferrably smoked.

And lucky me, I got a half pound of smoked bacon when I went camping. Oh darn, I suppose since it's not laden with preservatives I'll have to eat it.  ;D

Hmmmmm

I love eating good bacon but I don't like it added to most things as I think it overpowers. I don't like it on cheeseburgers at all.

I do like it crumbled on baked potatoes or with spinach salad. But keep it away from my donuts please.

If you change "love" to "like", I could have posted this.  I am of the mind that bacon is a topping, not an item unto itself.  Burgers, yes.  Pizza, yes.  Breakfast sandwiches, yes.

I have bacon lip balm ... weirdly, it is the only one my dog won't eat.

It's alright, man. I'm only bleeding, man. Stay hungry, stay free, and do the best you can.

Ugh, DH gave me some bacon chapstick for my birthday a few years ago.  One of the dogs got into it and managed to get bits of rancid-bacon-scented chapstick all over the master bathroom.  It reeked for weeks.

Just posted a recipe for bacon-scallion cornbread on the "What's for dinner?" thread. I love it, it reminds me of a baked hushpuppy.

Ok that's where I draw the line.  I like bacon and things flavored with bacon (real bacon)  Chemically produced bacon things are just wrong and an abomination.
