Comment Or Die

(yes, I ate some of this)

THAT, my friends, is a bacon maple bar from Voodoo Doughnuts here in P-town. I think my point is made.

So here's what. I'm trying to get a feel for how many people actually read this stupid ass blog. And since I'm technologically retarded and all I have for a tracking device is that stupid free counter thing that has tragedy attached to it, I'm going to figure it out the old fashioned way...by making you all comment.

SO...EVEN IF you're a non-commenting reader, I'm going to need you to suck it up and give me a little shout out. You can say as little or as much as you want, you can even be mean; I just want you to say something. Oh, and if you want to remain a pansy (that would be "Anonymous"), that's fine too. I just need to know the numbers, people.

So comment. Comment as though your life depended on it.

I will not post again until you do.

Thus spoke Zarathustra.

No comment.

Jill said...

I want some of that bacon maple bar. Anything that combines bacon with a donut has to be fabulous.

susan said...

fine, you are making me, but you know that i do not comment - don't expect it again!

Justin said...

BACON!

Susie Q said...

Blaaaahhh, it looks repulsive, I wouldn't eat that with YOUR mouth.

i read your blog all the time and i have no idea who you are.

Bacon I think was created by God on the 8th day, because after all that resting on the 7th, he wanted a BLT.

apterix55 said...

I read it almost every day.... Unless this is happens to be "pledge week", in which case my response is, "I just watch C-Span on cable".

apterix55 said...

BTW, when Is "Kara Radio" coming back on the air (or web, or whatever)?

phosgraphis said...

I check every day. I find you hilariously funny and your posts always make me laugh.

Macoosh said...

lady, you know you one of my favorite bloggers. you my baby daddy. mmhmm that's right.

meanwhile, am i the only person who thinks that thing you photographed looks gross? if i am, well, sorry, but it looks like a bacon cacoon. you can't eat it; it hasn't grown into a baconfly yet!

yinyang said...

Bacon maple bar? I'm sure it looks more appetizing in person... or maybe it's just the light...

<.< >.>

Oh, and how will you know if you got everyone if some people choose not to participate? Eh? :P

tyson said...

gah!

Bacon and map bar. Two great tastes that do not go together.

Kellie said...

NE is way awesomer than the SE. Oh yeah...I'm starting a quadrant war. Bring it!

nato said...

as someone trying to lose weight and get healthy, that looks like death on a plate to me. :) but probably pretty tasty.

I've been reading your blog for awhile, just stumbled on it. I've been reading since before Kansas showed up and I wanted to tell you that I thought he was fine, but that day I couldn't get the comment thingy to work. Then I figured why would you care that a perfect stranger thinks your boyfriend is good looking? so I didn't work very hard at trying to comment. So that's my comment.

The Future said...

I'm with Macoosh, I think Voodoo outdid themselves this time and created something more repulsive then the noseless Mr. Fiennes, if that's possible.

And Kellie is right, NE totally rocks. If you will recall, you used to think the same thing before you crossed over to the dark side (or the other side of Burnside anyway).

Sam, Problem-Child-Bride said...

That is a hideous abomination of a food-stuff. These voodoo people ought to be hung by the neck until they are dead. DEAD!

Kav said...

I'll have a slice with one of your refreshing beverages please.

Gorilla Bananas said...

We're doing this for you, so what are you going to do for us? Think of a good picture.

Sarah said...

Voodoo rocks, but you have to be so drunk that you don't mind stale donuts with freakish toppings. My personal fav is the fruit loop one. But that's only after 6 or so drinks. I think they lose their magic when sober.

That is a lot of pressure. I'll do my best. Kara, I read your blog every day, I am sad when there isn't a new post, you are a gifted and entertaining writer. I keep telling your mom that you need to write a book or host a column in the paper....SOMETHING!
I am only anonymous because I don't remember how to sign in....very pathetic, I know.

1. Please tell me you were drunk when you ate that! Reason being it doesn't count when you're drunk or buzzed for that matter! Not only can you eat crazy stuff but you can drop it on the floor and the 3 second rule applies. ONLY WHEN DRUNK THOUGH. Any other time it's just gross!

2. As if the donut wasn't high enough in cholesterol, yeah lets put some bacon on it!

I read your blog all the time. You're a wicked pissa!!!

Kara said...

waif - you know it.

jill - you know, it was pretty cold...cold bacon hiders fabulousness.

tiny sneezer - this is not the last time you will comment, oh no.

justin - it's been so long since i've seen your monosyllabic type!

sue - and i wouldn't dream of asking you. it's not what one would do to one in polite society.

anonymous I - i have no idea who you are either! isn't this FUN???

kevbo - did it really need to be a question?

jen - BLTs are a sham...i need cheese on all sandwiches in my life. i have rightness on my side.

apterix - um, you should be PLEDGING on pledge week.

phosgraphis - well HELLO! it's lovely to MEET you! my goodness you say nice things.

macoosh - you know, when we die, we go to the land of the bacon fly...and we never get fat. that's what i believe.

yinyang - as with any good test...there will be a margin of error that i'll have to live with. and i do believe i'll be able to soldier on. somehow.

ty - gah to you too.

anonymous II - well, as a good friend described it while chewing her half "it's like having pancakes with syrup that has oozed over to the side of the plate with bacon in it". so there you have it.

kellie - oh it has already been BRU-OUGHT! That's a hard word to spell phonetically. Anyways...you need to come over and see my new basement, er...apartment. We can eat on tv trays! hurray! oh, and we both must agree that NW is lame...just so there's eastside unity.

nato - it IS death on a plate! only in this instance, it's death on a paper towel balancing on a window sill.

Kara said...

anonymous III - well! i just told Kansas last night that there's an anonymous lady out there who thinks he's FINE...and i swear to you he BLUSHED. and then he hit me in the eye with cornbread. kidding. but i DO care what you think or don't think about these posts so comment as often as you WISH!

future - those were baby steps. i'm a big girl now.

sam - that's a bit harsh...especially when they have chocolate voodoo doll-shaped doughnuts, and if you're not nice to them, you may just find your face on one. or maybe you won't find it...you'll just have a lot of inexplicable joint pain.

kav - what...like water?

goranas - you and your picture obsession. i've posted a gajillion on here.

Jill D - blogger has done all sorts of mean things to non-blogging commenters since you last commented. but i'm glad you did anyway! i keep telling my mom things too...like she needs to stop going on hugely expensive cruises and squandering away my inheritance! she never listens.

pony - i wasn't drunk...but it WAS friday! and i believe the idea is more...doughnuts are fattiness anyway...what's two slices of bacon going to hurt?

anonymous IV - well now i don't believe you're even an anonymous reader...i think you're just pretending to be difficult. we both know the truth.

Macoosh said...

i just came by again to let you know how repulsive i think that photo is. it had to be done. you must learn. eheh

for some reason, it makes me think of the "bacon burger dog" they tried to get america to catch onto on the cosby show. remember that? no? am i a total dork? so what if i was obsessed w/ nick at night back home? so WHAT?!

Anonymous said...

Yah yah yah....

AxAtlas said...

I don't know which is more heinous: Your bacon maple bar or my choco-bacon (bacon with chocolate syrup).

Jon said...

I've never seen food that had the power to make me feel dirty.

Kara said...

macoosh - well, i tried to post today, but i forgot my camera at home and i need to replace this LOVELY bacon maple bar with something YOU will like better...because it's all about YOU isn't it?!?

Anonymous IV - and NOW you're quoting FARGO at me? outrage!

ax - both...equally.

jon - sometimes...that's okay.

Jill said...

So...how will you know whether or not everyone has commented?

Orhan Kahn said...

.. bacon maple bar from Voodoo Doughnuts..

Well, atleast the picture looks edible. The description however..

froelica said...

Better late than never.

nic said...

Yup. Here I post.

And I have to agree with Jon. I felt dirty. That thing looks like a human body part with a couple of bacon strips thrown across it.

and underneath you wrote, yeah, I ate some of this...

And I thought, My sweet heaven, that's so wrong. I think I'm going to throw up. But I have to finish reading the post first.

Then when I found out it was only maple bacon thing, I only heaved a few times.

Thanks for the laughs! You're one of my favorite bloggers. :)
