• A woman in suburban St. Louis returned to her home to find a burglar frying bacon in her kitchen. Damon Petty, 36, was arrested and charged with burglary due to his affinity for salty pork deliciousness. Petty tried preventing the homeowner and a friend from entering the home — presumably to finish preparing his snack — but ultimately couldn’t stop them. Mmm…bacon. I guess it’s kind of hard to blame the guy. I mean, could you walk away from a pan of partially-cooked bacon without eating its crispy, fatty goodness? [msnbc]
