Colorado prefers Bacon over Fries
As voters nationwide were choosing Barack Obama as the next U.S. president, people north of Denver, Colorado, were weighing a contest involving two other candidates with uncommon names.
Incumbent Bob Bacon squared off against challenger Matt Fries for a seat in the Colorado Senate.
Some media outlets found it difficult to resist the inevitable wordplay when reporting on the race, which Bacon won.
“It sounded more like a choice between side dishes at a diner,” began one report.
“Bacon cooks up win in return bid to Senate,” said another headline.
For accuracy’s sake, it should be pointed out that Fries pronounces his name ‘Freeze.’
Alas, that doesn’t help with the puns either.
Bacon withstands freeze?
