Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Nope. It does sound awesome, but I can feel my arteries hardening just thinking about taking a bite of something like that.

Down the drain?! ???
I pour my excess bacon fat into the garbage. I already have several containers-full of it in my freezer for seasoning cast iron pans or for frying. I used to use it for making suet balls to feed the non-migrating birds during winter but read that the high levels of processed nitrates are dangerous to them with their already rapid metabolisms so now I just get the suet cakes at the local Job Lot store..

U.S.—A new study suggests that avoiding red meat may lead to a longer, more miserable life.

The study found that by carefully avoiding bacon, carne asada, chicken-fried steak, hamburgers, brisket, tri-tip, tomahawk steak, and filet mignon, you might be able to eke another year or two out of your pointless existence.

"You might live a little longer, maybe," said one study intern. "Of course, then you'll be eating salad, kale, vegetables, fruits, and generally just hating life. So yeah, it's kind of a lose-lose."

Careful research showed that those who spent every waking moment trying to avoid the temptation to bite into a delicious bone-in ribeye could gain a few months of life, but they would pretty much hate those extra months of life, as well as the rest of their life, because they weren't eating red meat.

One man in the study, John Alpers, died at the ripe old age of 80 after avoiding red meat his entire life. His last words were, "Life is awful."

Another man in the control group, Lyle Manning, died at the age of 79 while eating a plate of bacon. His last words were, "I've lived a full life, and now I'm ready to go to the eternal meat-filled potluck in the sky."

Experts are recommending that if you want to live a melancholy existence full of existential dread and unfulfillment, go ahead and avoid red meat so you can go on existing a little bit longer.

While amusing, that's honestly pretty much my philosophy when it comes to food.  Who wants to live until they're 90 if you can't eat the things you enjoy?  (Granted, it's easier for me to say that, as I have no children or grandchildren to compel me to try and stick around for an extra decade or so.)

America's Pile of Uneaten Bacon Is the Biggest in 48 Years! :timeout:

Apparently we Grogs are not eating our fair share of bacon.  So step up all ye Grogs!
