Four Strips of Bacon

New York Magazine did a profile of the world’s oldest living person this week. 1

The lady’s name is Susannah Mushatt Jones. She was born in Alabama back on July 6, 1899. She has led a long, interesting life, and appears to have many admirable traits. But what endears her to us no end is a tiny little note at the bottom of the profile:

She is fragile, no question about it. Sleeps a lot, can’t hear well. But she still loves her bacon — four strips, every morning, eaten with gusto.

That’s right: four strips of bacon. Every morning.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: fuck a buncha cancer researchers.

  1. Isn’t that just stupid? “World’s oldest living person”? As opposed to what: world’s oldest dead person?

Something to say...?
