    Financial columnist and trend spotter Felix Salmon declares pumpkin the new bacon in this weekís New York Magazine. But why? What could an orange gourd-like squash and a crispy piece of pig possibly have in common? Why, popularity, of course. You see, everyone likes bacon. Itís salty. Itís crispy. Itís delicious. And it has gotten really popular recently. ...

    If you can talk a liberal into thinking that pumpkin is bacon, it is no surprise they were able to fool them into voting for Obama.

    How is obama working out for you?

    Yes, but they don't serve it with fried eggs. :)

    I hate pumpkin, even in pumpkin pie. I like roasted pumpkin seeds and that's about it.


    Bacon is so yummy-I don't eat it often, but I love it when I do. Even a little bit of bacon goes a long way in flavoring other things.
