You guys are so unforgiving. I believe in the Power of Bacon. Even if Bert doesn't love bacon, bacon loves him, and in time, with our careful guidance (and endless nagging), Bert will let bacon into his heart, and stomach, and arteries, and...

Plus, if you guys think the girl in the tee-shirt doesn't have better social opportunities than hanging out with a bunch of internet weirdos who may or may not own a camera she's never heard of, you really should start drinking a better grade of shoe polish.

Very generous of you. But he did say that he doesn't like bacon.

Besides, it should be possible to find a replacement with a longer life expectancy than Rupert's girlfriend has.

I don't have her contact info, but I'm sure I'd recognise her should I meet her.
No, that was in her early bacon days....you wouldn't recognize her today. You think we might make room for her here if I can make contact again?

Can we trust Bert? It's hard to trust a bacon convert........I've never even heard of such a thing? Has any real human ever had to be "converted" to bacon? There are many verified accounts of babies that uttered their first word ......Bacon! No one "converted" them......the bacon gene is either there or it isn't.

I'll go with whatever you guys decide, but I am skeptical? Maybe a years probation and some photos of Bert actually eating some bacon would sway my thoughts? Otherwise, I'm for letting the squirrels deal with Bert.

...and what about the ham? Don't forget, Bert hates ham too......who the hell can hate ham? My ex brother in law, a good man that married a nagging self centered woman, was highly allergic to ham, yet at family gatherings he ate all of it he could choke down. A few days in intensive care was worth it. Maybe I was wrong to give him that 14 pound hickory smoked ham for his birthday, but he did have the most wonderful funeral I can recall attending....and was buried alongside a 15 pound pork shoulder.

...doesn't like ham.....I don't know, that is hard to accept, knowing others have sacrificed their all for tasty ham.

Bert, are you willing to die for ham like my brother in law? You see, it's hard to trust a guy after he makes the kind of posts you have made, though I want to give you every opportunity for salvation.

Get a buddy to take a snap of you eating a bacon & ham sandwich on white bread with a big slice of Velveeta on it and I'm convinced. You have to have it in your mouth and teeth entrenched or it won't count. It's up to you Bert.....going through life as a bacon/ham hating pervert is a nasty label to carry. As a young man with your future ahead, here is your chance to rectify your poor judgment.

Regards!

I thought of that earlier, but I also thought you were a better person than that.
Where did they put that "ignore" button?

You didn't fool anyone, you young whipper and/or snapper! Love of pork products isn't something that happens overnight - it's a slow process that takes years, like heart disease or cholesterol buildup in the arteries.

Hey, I love ribs, pork chops, mince, roasts, etc.. But don't like the way bacon or ham is cooked. And I don't like liver.

Tell Otis to tell his army to take mouthwash when they head north.
I'm sure a bacon/ham hater will leave a foul taste.

Liver and onions can be great, if cooked correctly.
"cooked correctly" = "at least two continents away from me"

I like chicken livers battered and fried or cooked in garlic butter.

edit, I deleted my chicken livers photo because this thread went dead after my post.
I'm replacing it with my girl Brooke getting a bacon snack.
