Blatant Video Theft Corner: This Kid Loves Bacon

This is one of them thar video clips that's blowing up on Al Gore's Internet, so I figured I would drop it in for you losers.

I like this clip for many reasons. The little boy is funny because he thinks he's a grown up. He's talking like he thinks adults talk, but the fact remains that he is losing his shit because his new "mom" is throwing away his bacon. I like when he packs his suitcase and leaves. It's just adorable.

I believe it is worth mentioning that this is the second clip from Wife Swap where I have seen a tubby boy from the Deep South pack his things and leave because his swapped mom took away his junk food.

Now I won't bore you with facts about obesity in America or excerpts from Michael Pollan's wonderful studies about the food we eat, The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food. I won't do it because its boring and I would come across as completely full of shit (which might be the case anyway). I think this clip speaks for itself.

I'm not even going to decry the young man for his actions because I LOVE bacon and I can't say I wouldn't have done the same thing in his place.

Now to address the elephant in the room. Who the hell throws away bacon? That's just fucked up. Its so crispy and tasty. I remember one time in my life where I stopped eating pork products. It happened right after Babe came out on video. He was just such a cute pig that I couldn't bring myself to eat him. Then I realized that I wouldn't be eating the Babe, just some dumb pig from some farm. After this epiphany everything went back to normal.

In conclusion, bacon is the cat's meow and this kid is a modern-day Patrick Henry or Thomas Paine. He should be applauded for sticking to his guns.


  1. Ha- I remember watching this show. I love that kid. That's how Mom acts, like she the queen, and we the sorry people. I hate always having to be the sorry people.

  2. He packed up his little suitcase on wheels and showed her!
