1054: The Bacon
Title text: Normally pronounced 'THEH-buh-kon', I assume.
This comic plays off a typical American colloquialism in which "Bring home the bacon" means working hard and bringing money home to your family to put food on the table.
In this comic, Randall learns that "Bring home the bacon" is actually a double entendre for the above phrase and bringing home a drug that is known as "thebacon". In case, you aren't familiar, Vicodin is a pain medication that can be used by some as a drug of abuse. This comic features the White Hat character.
- White Hat: I'm out of work, but I'm not stressed about it because my wife is a pharmacist and she brings home thebacon.
- Caption: Only later did I learn that "thebacon" is the common name for Dihydrocodeine Enol Acetate, a synthetic opioid similar to Vicodin.
