Buy Dan Bacon?
« on: November 11, 2008, 08:56:49 PM »
There's a story here. I demand to know what it is (re: your link off the Writing Excuses website).

http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2KB8VTV693ZPC

And don't tell me you just like bacon. That's a cop-out.

(I will say that I was laughing.out.loud at that list. Amusing on so many levels.)

I am feeling some serious love for that bacon wallet, man. It holds your money and it tastes good!

The only story here is that Brandon and Howard have books to sell, and I don't, so instead of a "buy's Dan's stuff" link under my author bio, there's a link to this wish list. And it works, too--so far I've received a wallet, an air freshener, some mints, some bandaids, a saint, and a T-shirt. All the REAL Dan fans are doing, and so should you.

I have never seen so much bacon inspired stuff in my life....I could have looked I suppose, but, I must not like bacon as much as Dan. ;) And the car air fresheners? Do they really smell like bacon? I love the list though, it is a treasure trove of gift ideas for you, and for  people in my own family. :)

The bacon air freshener is arguably the worst-smelling thing in the world. Imagine cardboard that has somehow gone bad, and then been left in a hot car all day. It is completely awesome.

I actually laughed out loud to that. Thank you. I guess the only thing I can ask is, do we need to get you everything on the list so you can write us a product review?

So, do you really like bacon this much?

...or are you just trying to get free stuff?

I think he's a closet Kevin Bacon fan.  The other items are just there as camouflage.
If I had any clue, would I be here?

I imagine that keeps you from having to give rides to people unless it is an complete and utter emergency. ;) And I'm not sure how "arguably the worst-smelling" equates to "completely awesome", but somehow I'm sure you will explain it so that it makes sense.

That is the craziest compillation of items I have ever seen. And the fact that they can all be bought in ONE place is...well...AMAZING! :D

I'm trying to get free stuff BECAUSE I like bacon this much.

Well, you better enjoy bacon floss then, because you're about to get some in 3-5 business days :D

You forgot about this:

Imagine Footloose with biking instead of dancing and set in New York instead of Lehi.  You get the idea.
If I had any clue, would I be here?

That looks cool, but I'm skeptical. I have trouble believing any movie in which the villain is not played by John Lithgow.

A. Bacon. Wallet. Bwahahahahahhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Oh, my. You can actually bring home the bacon in more ways than one. Oooh, and the bacon & eggs cufflinks are spiffy.

But, hang on one second, Fell. I seem to recall that EUOL's arch nemesis has a very worshipful relationship with bacon. Are you joining together with the force of evil known as SCALZIIIIIIIIIIIIII?
