    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.

    Some Canadians prefer the other bacon...
