Cause and Effect and Trouser Bacon

A little while ago (ie, yesterday), this happened:

I got an email from a friend that said some things, and then right at the end (and totally unrelated, I might add), he said, "I reserve the right to make a bacon hat."

This struck me as a genius statement. So I tweeted.

Oh, and today, I got an email that said, "I reserve the right to make a bacon hat." Don't we all, unnamed emailing person? DON'T WE ALL???

People read my tweet, which still astounds me. And then Lish McBride, who wrote one of the funniest books in existence--HOLD ME CLOSER, NECROMANCER--sent me a video of a guy who wears a bacon dress and puts bacon down his pants, because she GETS ME.

So then we started ranting about trouser bacon, and how I wanted a shirt that says, "You should never eat trouser bacon," and then Laini Taylor, who I WILL MEET LIVE AND IN PERSON NEXT WEEK, jumps into the conversation, and at the end of the day, I think we might have pitched my agent with an anthology of stories...all about trouser bacon. Which I, personally, would buy.

Wouldn't you? I would very much like to see what Laini and Lish would do in the trouser bacon genre.

I'd read it!

On a similar (bacony) note, I once overheard someone say "I'd be a vegetarian if it weren't for bacon."

Trouser bacon sounds vaguely pornographic. I'm just sayin'.

But honestly I would read anything with this in the

I would definitely read an anthology of stories about bacon. Also, I can say bacon in three languages: English, Spanish, and American Sign Language.

I have yet to come up with a kidlit blog friendly comment on the topic of trouser bacon.

Mmmm ... Bacon!

I had to laugh at this post. Thanks for putting a smile on my face. If someone asks me why I am smiling, I might just have to be honest and answer; I am smiling because of bacon.
