Bacon Does Not, In Fact, Make EVERYTHING Better

My son (aged 8) was sitting at the kitchen table, eating breakfast and doodling on the newspaper with a mechanical pencil.  Just then, the pencil ran out of lead.

So, naturally, he took the pencil apart and replaced the lead with a strip of cooked baconNaturally.

Later in the day, I needed to jot down a phone number, so I grabbed the closest pencil and began to write.  Sadly, I found that bacon is not an adequate substitute for graphite.

File that away in  your memories, people.

Perhaps mechanical pencils are the exception that proves the rule.
