Bacon Boy in The Edmonton Journal

02/24/11 2:54 PM

A year ago today, I was on my way to to Wendy’s for Baconators with some friends. But it was a special day (my birthday), so I promised to wear my bacon uniform. I received a phone call from Marta Gold at the Edmonton Journal, informing me of a LifeStyles spread all about bacon. My first reaction was to laugh at her. Then, I told her to send a photographer. This she did, and I made top shelf on the front page!

My burger was a gift from Alex Lee, who ordered a triple Baconator, minus the beef patties, plus 20 extra orders of bacon. See below for the receipt and other photos. FYI, I did not eat the burger. I actually took it home and froze the bacon. It lasted a long time (shocking, I know).


While not obvious, I’m reaching for my wallet.

Triple Baconators are for babies. We’re talking 6 inches of bacon, people.

    EWwwww… I think my arteries clogged up just looking at all the bacon on that burger…

    I’m relieved to hear you didn’t actually eat that thing in one sitting.

“What the heck is Best Bar None, anyway?” That was my question when Dave Young invited me to attend a walking tour of 4 BBN accredited downtown Edmonton bars. At first, it seemed odd to invite a straight-edge guy to a series of bars, although it didn’t take long for
