Pepper(ed) Bacon

Maegan and I were watching Iron Man a few weeks ago (amazingly well done), and noticed that the woman's name in it was Pepper. Maegan said to me, "Pepper. That's a pretty girl's name." I started wondering why would someone name their daughter after a spice. But then she said, "Oh, wait. Pepper Bacon. That won't work at all." At which point I started laughing. Hmm... Pepper Bacon. And we could name a boy Hammond Bacon. And there's the ever popular Chris P. Bacon.

I always loved that Chris P. Bacon joke!

Hey, if y'all moved to the north country you could be The Canadian Bacons!

I thought as soon-to-be newlyweds, you might appreciate this.

You are probably familiar with the phrase "bring home the bacon." Back in the 12th century, a deacon in the English town of Dunmow is said to have promised to give a side of bacon to any man who would swear that he had not quarreled with his wife for a year and a day. A husband who could "bring home the bacon" was held in high esteem by the community for his upstanding behavior.
