Standing before this Brooklyn pork store, I’m reminded of a provocative conundrum I baked up a year or so ago. It’s provoked lively debate ever since. Try it yourself:

Question: If you were required to give up either bacon or The Beatles – for the rest of your life – which would you choose? what’ll it be? Of the dozens I’ve queried, most leap to eagerly answer: “Pffft, WELL OF COURSE, I’d keep The Beatl… well, hang on… so… would this include, like, *all* smoky pork-based products…? Lennon’s solo stuff? Covers of Beatles songs? Soy bacon?…no wait, scratch those last two… um…so… where does ham factor in to all this…?” …etc

Contemplate this conundrum deeply and you will find your spirit animal.
