    Someone posted a recipe for biscuits made with 7-Up (seriously... 7-Up) on Facebook. I was puzzled. I asked my 84 yr old grandma about it, and she said, "Oh, that kind of thing was a fad in the 60's."

    One of those annoying "suggested posts" on my Facebook feed today is from Yoplait. It's a meme: "Sorry for what I said when I was hungry." Made me think immediately of this thread. Yeah, you will...

    Also, since I put bacon in the title, maybe I should say something about bacon... Today's $0.02: Trader Joe's bacon kinda sucks. It shrinks to half the size when it's cooked. I have tried it twice...
