Traina Thoughts: PETA asks people why they eat bacon and it doesn't go well
The best of the Internet, plus musings by SI.com writer, Jimmy Traina.
1. Passing on an item related to sports at the top today because we have to start with something the Internet loves more than almost anything: Bacon. For some reason, PETA thought it would be a good idea yesterday to ask people to present their best argument for eating bacon. Now, asking the most innocent, benign question on Twitter can often lead to a complete s---show. But when you question people on the World Wide Web about bacon, all hell is gonna break loose. And it did. If you need a few laughs today, click the tweet below and check the replies.
