Who among all erudite ATSers here four years ago does not remember seeing, participating in, laughing, and drooling over Hefficide's (call him John) now-famous bacon thread? It was classic and many of us still refer to it now and then with fondness and a wide smile. (For newer members, you can find it here

Ok, you aficionados and dreamers, Canada has answered the prayers of some of you and Ta dah! Maple Leaf Foods is actually looking for a (get this), an honest-to-goodness bacon ambassador! You read that right. There is a real job opening for that position. I kid you not.

Here's the ad:

Yahoo News

See for yourselves

Anyone interested?

Makes me hungry to this day. I saw it well before I actually registered, but i swear I still put bacon on my grilled cheese because of it. As far as the topic at hand, I am simply...not worthy. I would love to be, but I was impatient a few weeks ago and nuked it while making a sandwich. I'm fairly certain that disqualified me

Rumor has it that because Mike Duffy was willing to take the fall for King Stephen that he will get a full pardon and acquire the position by Royal decree .Earlier in the process to fill the spot ,it was John Baird that would be the go to guy and that is why he left politics ,but Pamela Wallin brought up the fact that John had a Israel citizenship .

the problem that i see is that Canadians keep using the word bacon, but it doesn't mean what they think it means.

Huh? We call bacon 'bacon" just exactly like you do. There is no difference at all. A BLT or bacon cheeseburger is exactly the same in either country.

However an American term that you refer to as 'Canadian bacon" is perhaps what you're talking about? I think it's peameal covered back bacon which I had once when I was little, sort of like tiny ham rounds. It's not crispy and doesn't measure up, imho.

So what you do think we mean?

All's good then. Imagine, trying to get my mind to think straight when I'm only on my second cup.

I remember Heff's epic bacon thread. He should be the bacon ambassador just for writing it.

Ah, I fully agree. Can you picture all the excellent letters of reference ATS members would send to the company on his behalf?

It would take months to read all of the emails. It might even shut their server down.

How simply glorious would that be! Our beloved Heff as Ambassador of Bacon; it has a certain crispiness of authority and an aroma of all things good. Gets along with everything, married to cheese or pizza, potato salad, and of course eggs. The Ambassador would be the ultimate enhancer.

Does the Ambassador of Bacon come in this truck? If not, he or she should just to make sure that all diplomacy is smoothed over with yummy, bacony food goodness ... fries.

I never heard of that outfit. In days before cooking oil, fries used to be cooked in bacon fat. Is that what this outfir offers?

They have "bacon jam" on one of their sandwiches. What is bacon jam? Bacon grease?
