I lived in two of the greatest pork cities in the world. I don’t mean political waste, I mean actual pork.
I grew up in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area where we have the two great regional pork delicacies, pork roll and scrapple. Then when I got married I moved to North Carolina the home of the best barbecue in the world. North Carolina loves there barbecue so much there is a sort of a barbecue civil war between eastern and western North Carolina. I have been pork blessed.
However if my son took the last piece of bacon or ate most of the bacon, which he has done, I wouldn’t do what 63-year-old Marilee Ann Kolynych did to her 9-year-old grandson.
Kolynych of Clifton Heights, Pennsylvania, not too far from Philly, was arrested for allegedly throwing her grandson to the ground, sitting on his chest, beating him on his legs and spraying a garden hose in his face at full blast. All because…
“Apparently, he ate more bacon than anyone else at breakfast,” Press said. “She was yelling at him and picking on him all day because there wasn’t enough bacon for everyone.”
He’s a 9-year-old kid. They like to eat, sometimes a lot. It’s what they do. They’re going to sneak cookies. They’re going to try and get a piece of food while you’re cooking. They will eat all the bacon if you don’t keep an eye on them.
I’m going to out on a limb here and say that Granny Hormel has other issues besides her love for bacon.
Thanks to Rhonda for the tip.
