How Could You Do That to Bacon?

There are pictures going around the Internet of a Chinese apartment building with bacon hung on all the balconies. The Website, which apparently is some sort of video gamer hotspot, re-posted a bunch of photos of the dastardly deed.

It got me thinking about Ronmer Swimpson, a mix of Ron Swanson and Homer Simpson that I created in a blizzard-induced fit of boredom a few weeks ago. Basically, Ronmer is the ideal man -- funny, lazy, government-hating, lazy, beer-loving, lazy, etc.

The Homer part of Ronmer's personality has this to say about bacon (from the Royal Bacon Society):
--“Porkchops and bacon, my two favorite animals.”
--“When you’re in my house, you shall do as I do and believe who I believe in. So Bart, butter your bacon.”

And the Ron portion of the personality says this (from
--"Just give me all the bacon and eggs you have... Wait, wait. I'm worried what you just heard was, 'Give me a lot of bacon and eggs.' What I said was, 'Give me all the bacon and eggs you have.' Do you understand?"

(I love it when April gets in on the act.) 

Apparently, Chinese bacon is air-cured instead of smoked. Still, with all the smog in Chinese cities, I'm pretty sure Ronmer wouldn't approve of that mistreatment of the "magical animal" known as the pig.
