Six Degrees

Buffalo wings are served with blue cheese, which is served with salad, which is served with soup, which is served with bread, which shares a BLT with... BACON!!!

Explanation: That's right! It's six degrees of bacon!!! Want another? It doesn't even have to be about food. How about this:

Popeye eats spinach, which is in Quiche Lorraine, which contains eggs, which are served with... BACON!!!

Hmmm... Let's get tricky.

Jack Nicholson was in A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon, who was in JFK with Jack Lemmon, and lemons are squeezed on scallops, which come wrapped in.... BACON!!!

There. I started you off. Give it a shot. It's quite fun.


Special Blog Bonus: Here's comedian Jim Gaffigan talking about bacon:

Chewbacca is a wookie who was friends with Hon Solo. Han Solo was played by Harrison Ford. Harrison Ford played Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones once alomst ate a poisoned date. In Spain I had dates that were wrapped in... BACON!

Hillary Clinton is married to Bill Clinton who cheated on her. Barry Bonds is also a cheater. Bonds are traded like stocks. Stock comes from chicken. Chickens lay eggs, which are served with... BACON!!!

Wesley Snipes was in the Rising Sun with Sean Connery who was in The Rock with James Cavieze who was in the GI Jane with Demi Moore who was in The Butchers Wife with Miriam Margolyes who did a voice in the movie Babe, Pig in the City that is about a pig where we get Bacon.

OOH! Nice angle. I like it!

Of course, I would have gone from Wesley to Woody Harrelson in White Men Can't Jump and then to Demi through Indecent Proposal. Then again, you may have repressed memory of that movie because you found Woody and Demi so hard to believe as a couple. Still, any reference to White Men Can't Jump that doesn't involve Rosie Perez is a good reference.

Hockey is a sport that you love which is played on Ice. Ice is often served with Scotch. Scotch comes from Scotland. Scotland is known for Highland Cows, which are made into hamburgers. Not long ago, I had a hamburger with BACON!

Woody Harrelson was in White Men Can't Jump with Wesley Snipes who was in Mo Better Blues with Denzel Washington who played Malcolm X who may have been killed on the order of Eliza Mohamed who refrains from eating pork products which we get bacon from.

Pope Benedict XVI, born Joseph Alois Ratzinger is the 265th and reigning Pope, the spiritual head of the Catholic Church. Ratzinger is a German name as is Rathkskeller a German restaurant usually in the basement of a building which could serve Rouladen, a German dish featuring Beef rollups filled with, onions, spicy mustard tart pickle wedge and bacon. Pope Benedict XVI has the same name as Eggs Benedict which is made with Canadian Bacon which shares the same bacon name as real Bacon.

The Catholic Church offers many links to bacon amoung which are David W. Bacon, who was a Roman Catholic bishop, born in Brooklyn, New York in 1814, and Roger Bacon, also known as Doctor Mirabilis (Latin: "wonderful teacher"), one of the most famous Franciscan friars of his time.

Francis Bacon, 1st Viscount St Alban (22 January 1561 – 9 April 1626) was an English philosopher, statesman, and essayist and a member of the Reformed Puritan Church, not Catholic. His works established and popularized an inductive methodology for scientific inquiry, often called the Baconian method.

And if you do a Google search on Bacon and the “Roman Catholic Church” you get 88,000 references. You can pick the appropriate pun on your own to describe this relationship.

Kevin Bacon was in Swingers with Dustin Hoffman who had the title role in Hook. Captain Hook was always after Peter Pan. Wendy is Peter Pan's friend. The Wendy's menu features The Baconator: Six strips of hickory smoked bacon piled high atop two 1/4 lb. patties of fresh, never frozen, beef. Complete with two slices of American cheese, mayo and ketchup for a mountain of mouth-watering taste.

Major bonus points for using the Baconator. I'm not sure how it hasn't worked it's way into a post yet.

I do feel obligated to say that the movie you're referring to is Sleepers not Swingers. That being said, I'd kill to hear Dustin Hoffman and Kevin Bacon yell "Vegas baby! VEGAS!"
