    It’s to bad that girl Jess isn’t throwing here FakinFest this year to counteract all the bad mojo and karma that this event brings.

      Bacon does not bring people bad mojo and karma, it brings people pure bliss the moment it melts in their mouth! MMmmmmmm!

      Bacon brings the world together… it’s the one thing Muslims and Jews can agree on.
