Bacon Expert

Usually when I'm misquoted or my quote is truncated to the point of meaninglessness in a newspaper article, I don't care. But, when you are being quoted as a spokesperson for bacon and it makes you sound like a crazy person...

Bacon article on Salon

The question I was asked was, "How does bacon fit in with your other product categories?"

I said something like, "Most of the products we sell are based around things that people like as children before they have any critical thoughts about them. Bacon, like pirates and ninjas, have negative qualities, like murdering people or causing high blood pressure, but we have only positive connections with them."

This got reduced to:

"It's like ninjas or pirates."

Which makes me sound stupid. Bacon is far more delicious than ninjas or pirates.
