    I bet I have more. Cockwire.com counts as ten. Robotsocks.com at least three. Baconbot is 1.34456.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Did you know I used to work at the only store in the U.S. that sells <a target="_blank" href="http://www.seriouseats.com/required_eating/2007/03/bacon-maple-doughnut-a-handful.html">bacon doughnuts</a>?

    But these reptoids see, they're probably cold-blooded, right? So you could kill them with enough freezing cold? You could flash freeze the Bush cabinet and find out which ones were reptoids probably right? Or maybe just use a fire extinguisher? You could do it on live television so the whole world could see before you were Guantanamo'd. And by "you" I mean anyone immediately available later on I guess. This could work though right?

    I once saw Richard shoot a reptoid alien right in its head with a gun that was made out of bacon and shot bacon. I took pictures with my bacon camera, but someone from the Illuminati ate them.

    And it was only after that last event that Wil ejaculated.

    @Wil - is a bacon camera a camera made of bacon, or a camera that can only take pictures of bacon?

    Well, you've managed to get me back to this board. You also caused me to go out and buy Smart Bacon, a tofu substitute. But I doubt you condone that behavior.

    Hey R! Great to see two of my favorite online comics converging like this. I've been reading Diesel Sweeties for years, and recently started listening to you on Twitter. You deliver quite a lot of entertainment!

    When you started pixelating robot love, did you have any idea it would become what it has today?

    I find it funny that I came in here to post a picture of a bacon maple bar, which I ate last night, only to find the last comment in the thread (at that time, you all are fast) had just mentioned it.

    It's like eating bacon along with pancakes and maple syrup. Delicious.

    One of the perks of working at Voodoo was being paid in bacon.

    Nope! It was only after a year or so and some luck with t-shirts that I realized something long-lasting could come of it.

    Are all these bacon doughnuts from VooDoo Doughnut in Portland? I need to get some of those. They make grape pixie stick dust glazed that are mutagenically good.

    Yah, the Bacon maple bar is a Voodoo Doughnut creation. They don't get to sell the Nyquil or Robitussin doughnuts anymore because some stupid parents complained to the FDA, but so far the illuminati is helpless against our bacon.

    I think I speak for many members of the board* when I say there is nothing smart about tofu bacon.

    *unless they disagree with me...

    I read sluggy freelance and xkcd. Also I look at comics at comicmix (not really webcomics per se, but comics on the web I guess) big head press, sin titulo, dinosaur comics, and for some old comic goodness I revisit Oscar and Annie. This last has only a few comics, but I love them.

    Bacon is the duct tape of the food world!

    I have many of your fine shirts. Glad this other business is working out for you too. I saw something called Ostrich Bacon in the store on Saturday. I believe that is a sign the Apocalypse is near.

    Long-form webcomics (besides FA): Red String, Khaos, Brink, La Muse, Errant Story, Goodbye Chains, and YU+ME are some of my faves.

    As far as strips, just DS and The Devil's Panties.

    R Stevens, bless you for the links to Dicebox and Family Man. I've been looking for more longform webcomics.

    Also, despite being vegetarian, I find this "bacon salt" intriguing. There's a god that is playing tricks on me, and I don't like it.

    One of the immediate attractions to Diesel Sweeties is the indelible mark of the video game systems that many of us grew up with. Heck, the main character for the Atari game 'Adventure' was just one pixel!

    Adventure!

    After I got into Diesel Sweeties though, I think that the comic really works well on facial expressions alone. Not to detract from the rest of the strip, mind you. I love the quotables, "Poorly chosen words are the most effective contraception known to man" for example. And then there's the easter eggs; Intricate, pixelated represenations of Chewbacca and other childhood friends...

    Godfather

    So, here's to boosting your ego! I think I should order a T-shirt now....
