The World Gone Bacon Mad

(This was the first picture that came up when I typed in "person dressed as bacon" on Google as an image search...)

From Harper's via a tip from Kurt:

A woman dressed as a rasher of bacon harassed Muslim food vendors in Manhattan. "Don't you like bacon?" she asked. "Bacon is so good. Do you ever put bacon on these hot dogs? 'Cause they'd taste really good wrapped up in delicious bacon. Maybe sprinkled with bacon. Or stuffed with bacon. Come on, don't you love bacon?"

Turns out that the real source of this tale of bacon harassment is: http://vanishingnewyork.blogspot.com/2009/10/bacon-vs-hot-dog.html

... and that as my sleuth friend Kurt reports:

Reading the source of the story, it seems that the facts were only that the vendor spoke Arabic. Characterizing the vendor as a Muslim was pure speculation.

As far as I'm concerned it was worth it just to post the picture of those kids dressed as bacon ;-)

Everything looks cuter with bacon.
