Bacon Battle Begins
Bacon festival attendees lodge complaints with Maryland attorney general’s office
People are upset that the Beer Bacon Music festival wasn’t really all-you-can-eat.
FREDERICK , Md., May 21 (UPI) –
Some bacon fans are getting the authorities involved after they allegedly paid up to $125 for an all-you-can-eat event and only received a few strips.
Multiple Beer Bacon Music festival-goers have complained to the Maryland attorney general’s office after attending the two-day festival in Frederick.
More than 5,000 people attended the festival and they were supposed to get a chance to indulge in two tons of bacon and more than 100 varieties of beer.
Irene Hafner waited for over an hour-and-a-half for her shot at the bacon bar and walked away empty-mouthed. “Not one piece of bacon got in my mouth,” she told the Frederick News-Post. “I got a T-shirt, a turkey sandwich and probably a total of one beer for $125.”
Event promoter Kevin MacFawn said that at least 35 people have asked for refunds but that it’s uncertain whether those requests will be granted.
An attorney who attended the event, James Braswell, said that MacFawn would be hearing from him via a complaint mentioning unfair trade practices and fraud. “If one is going to advertise all-you-can-eat bacon, you better have all-you-can-eat bacon,” he said.

Some folks got upset over bacon,
Their poor hearts were truly achin’.
Some attendees were surely shaken,
So legal action was taken.
They thought that could eat,
A lot of the tasty treat.
But there wasn’t enough of the meat,
Many customers felt defeat.
They were promised at least two tons,
So that they could have some fun,
Eating bacon with or sans buns,
But they ran out, making folks stunned.
They paid a lot of cash,
For that big bacon bash,
But their hopes were soon dashed,
Now comes a legal clash.
Some people are calling it fraud,
So they called up a legal squad,
To sue, which isn’t so odd,
Over planning that was truly flawed.

Your HORROR – Scope for the week of: May 25th, 2014
Here we are again folks.
Get ready for another batch of celestial prognostications.
Things have settled down at Horror-Scope Central.
The solar chart readers have been working furiously to give you the latest results of their endeavors.
There’s good and there’s bad.
In other words, a typical week of lunacy.
Aries… The conjunction of Venus and Jupiter is significant for you. In the distant future, you could be impaled by a narwhale in Whales while you’re watching whales. We don’t have the details.
Taurus… Saturn is in its seventh house this week washing windows. Get your computer warmed up. In the somewhat immediate future, you will write a bestseller called, ” Cockeyed Cooking With Casabas”.
Gemini… Once again, Venus is trine with German wine. Art is in the eye of the beholder. One day in the future, someone will paint a paisley pattern on a prominent protrusion of our body.
Cancer… The moon is in high orbit now and very shiny. You may be barking up the wrong tree. In the not too distant future, you will bring a seeing eye dog to a duck blind.
Leo… Your sign is now mutable in its fourth house. Can you feel it? When you have to go, you have to go. You will soon find a jackrabbit named Johnny in a john.
Virgo… Mars and Mercury are square right now after being trine. Get ready to play chicken. In the future, you will be arrested for plucking poultry on a parapet with Dennis Miller.
Libra… Neptune is square with Venus. Shop till you drop. Sometime in the distant future, you will become enthralled in a mall just before a fall.
Scorpio… Jupiter is aligned with Mercury. This is better than a lava lamp. In the somewhat immediate future, you will write a bestseller called, “Baking With Basalt.
Sagittarius… Saturn is trine with Sagittarius. Hop to it. Someday in the future, you will lose all your hair, or hares. It isn’t clear at this time.
Capricorn… The sun is trine with Pluto now. Get ready for this. In the near future, you will begin an argument with yourself, but you will lose.
Aquarius… Mars is the ruler of Aquarius. Get your sun glasses on. You will soon spray hundreds of containers of sun block into the air. Your efforts will be in vain. It won’t block the sun.
Pisces… Uranus and Neptune are on the cusp of a big deal. Be aware of this. Your enemies are planning to coagulate you. They just might do a bloody good job of it.
And remember what Weird Al says about astrology in his song, “Your Horoscope For Today”:
“Now you may find it inconceivable or at the very least a bit unlikely that the relative position of the planets and the stars could have a special deep significance or meaning that exclusively applies to only you, but let me give you my assurance that these forecasts and predictions are all based on solid, scientific, documented evidence, so you would have to be some kind of moron not to realize that every single one of them is absolutely true.”
