    Financial columnist and trend spotter Felix Salmon declares pumpkin the new bacon in this week’s 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. It’s salty. It’s crispy. It’s delicious. And it has gotten really popular recently. ...

    No, no it isn't.

    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.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

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

    (Really? Pumpkin tea?)

    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.

    I think that unlimited bacon probably sells a lot of AYCE brunches. Being able to pig out on bacon without having to cook it is a real luxury. Unfortunately, it's taboo on my medical diet but I should think that once a year wouldn't hurt.

    Pumpkin and eggs or Pumpkin lettuce and tomato does not sound yummy.
