Where’s the BACON? I smell Bacon! I can’t reeeeead! (Beggin’ Strips commercial, God I love that commercial.) So, ummm….BACON!! Ribs are certainly delicious, but not always accessible on a whim when you need/want them, and take too long to make. Worth it, def, but…BACON!! Reply BabyBot April 9th, 2009 Mmmmm, bacon wrapped ribs. Reply Bob K April 9th, 2009 Bacon’s awesomeness is exceeded only by ribs. Reply Aaron April 9th, 2009 haha I want bacon wrapped ribs! Bacon still wins. Reply rossitron April 9th, 2009 i voted ribs, knowing they stand a fraction of a chance. i do love bacon, though. i just feel more loyalty and affection for ribs. Reply DAVE ID April 9th, 2009 Had to go with Bacon but it was close. Both are awesome meats. But bacon can break vegans, it’s that good. Reply Miles April 9th, 2009 Yeah. Go ahead and order yourself some bacon instead of ribs. Real cold. Ribs are better. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
