Combo Plate: Cheese seized, Taco Bell fights back, a bacon kiss and more

BACON PSA from Todd S on Vimeo.

 --We all know bacon makes everything better, right? But did you know that bacon makes a bloody Mary better, too? Watch this video of Todd S using a slab o' bacon as a stirrer. And wait for the part about the bacon-y kiss...

--Many online photo galleries rely on -- yawn! -- stock photos. Well, check out the selection of celebrity and movie stills to illustrate this photo gallery, which is presumably about all the things your grocer won't tell you. But what I really want to know: Who is the movie buff with the photographic memory who put this all together? Nicely done.

--Food for thought: Is there a link between food prices and the unrest in Egypt? Good has this take on it.

--Say cheese: Federal prosecutors in Central California have busted outlaws they describe as pale-skinned and somewhat smelly, with mug shots worthy of Bon Appetit: 97 wedges of raw-milk Gouda cheese.

--Irvine-based Taco Bell is biting back: Faced with a lawsuit alleging the company’s beef isn’t very meaty, the Mexican fast food chain has launched a massive marketing campaign including snarky full-page newspaper ads that declare, “Thank you for suing us.”
