Cast your mind back to December 21, when Bites offered a cookbook for the cleverest caption for an image of a man with a bacon headdress.
The prospect of owning the New Southern Garden Cookbook resulted in a slew of funny answers on the porcine minotaur.
Now that Christmas madness has been stuffed back into its closet, and cookieless, boozeless January has moved in its slippers and neti pot to nag about our habits, it's time to recognize and award the triumphal punster with a cookbook.
Two equally strong entries tied for best caption. Short and sweet clenched it for commenter RainandRoses ("The power of bacon compels you!"), while Terence's caption summed up the current climate of bacon worship ("Crisp it from here with the torch — I'm not dunking my head in the deep fryer a third time...")
Congrats, funny folk. Message me at nwood(at)nashvillescene.com for book pickup arrangements.
