Comedian Jim Gaffigan has the gift of seeing humor in everyday situations.
He’s also known for how much he loves to eat. (One of his books is even entitled Food: A Love Story.)
In this classic routine from his “King Baby” show, Gaffigan praises “the most beautiful thing on Earth” — bacon.
“Bacon’s the best. Even the frying of bacon sounds like applause,” he quips.
According to Gaffigan, much of bacon’s appeal lies in its ability to enhance other foods. After all, “if it weren’t for bacon, we wouldn’t even know what a water chestnut is.”
And when a salad is topped with bacon bits, it always “becomes a game of ‘find the bacon in the lettuce.'”
