Blame the Bacon When She Dies

World's Oldest Woman Turns 115: Never Drank, Never Smoked, Loves Crispy Bacon

LOS ANGELES — The world's oldest known living person celebrated her 115th birthday Monday.

Gertrude Baines was honored at Western Convalescent Hospital with music, a letter from the president, and two cakes.

Baines said little during the celebration as friends sang to her and she received a proclamation from Guinness World Records acknowledging her as the world's oldest person.
Baines' physician said she only has two complaints.

"Number one, she doesn't like the bacon. It's not crisp enough," the doctor, Charles Witt Jr., told KCAL-TV. "And the other thing is she fusses about her ... arthritis of her knees. She told me that she owes her longevity to the Lord, that she never did drink, she never did smoke and she never did fool around." Read More

After being told this past week that eating meat will kill you, isn’t it ironic that the oldest person on the planet enjoys crispy bacon?

Getrude, you go girl! Enjoy your crispy bacon! I prefer mine a bit juicy. As OPD said "Everything in moderation."

Whenever I get a chance I make or order a bacon cheeseburger DLX. A BCB represents most of the spectrum of agriculture from the beef, pork, and dairy herdsmen, wheat farmers, and also the veggie farmers with the tomato,pickle, and lettuce.
