    Default Canada - known for it's bacon?

    I don't see a subforum for "silliness" so I am putting this in food since it's bacon related.

    Good for a chuckle, especially if your a Canuck.

    "When asked what first comes to mind when thinking about Canada, 52% of 2,750 Americans polled said "Canadian bacon"."

    Living in Iowa, where there a twice as many pigs as humans, I find that funny. I do love pork, and all of those that provide it, where ever it comes from.

    I showed this thread to my wife and I got the look. She is from Canada. I bug her about why they call ham bacon. It really gets her going. lol
    One day she will cook my bacon.

    I like this line, lol: "We wanted to complete the poll but government cuts and the renewal of Don Cherry's contract made that impossible," said a CBC spokesperson.

    Proper "Canadian Bacon" is back bacon, not the fatty strips you yanks are used to eating. A lot of you guys would probably think it was ham.

    Canadian bacon rules!! Poutine is great also. Then again if you go to Newfoundland you can try seal flipper pie.
