5 Tons Of Bacon A Week

For all the "America is an idea" exceptionalism around here, this is who we are. And damn proud.

I'd keep my eye on that northern border if I were you.

Am I supposed to object to the idea that we're a pound of bacon, and you're cheese curds?

Heh. Seriously, as you know, we're big on getaways to the States (Just back from SC. What a wonderful place!), and are quite familiar with the gargantuan portions in family restaurants. What continues to astound me is not so much the size of the portions as the age of the people who manage to eat them. Twenties-somethings who can are just gluttons, but seniors who can are...well...exceptional.
