This is Tom Coghill, owner of a little placed called Iron Barley in South St. Louis. That tray he is holding is FILLED with bacon.  All those people behind him were working this weekend on putting together the worlds longest BLT sandwich!

The previous record was 169 feet.  Tom and his crew of 90 volunteers built their sandwich to a new record length of 179 feet, two inches!!!  In all they used 500 pounds of bacon, 1,280 pounds of tomatoes, 100 heads of lettuce and 48 gallons of mayo.

You can see more photos and video of the team building the record sandwich at the RiverfrontTimes.com.

Well done sir, well done!

Who has got two thumbs and has it bad for this gal?  THIS GUY RIGHT HERE!

Oh, and she digs choco-bacon!

From her recent interview in Esquire:

CH: And two kinds of pork in one soup? Bring it on. I just learned what guanciale is, when I was in New Orleans. It’s the pig jowl. I went to this butcher there, and I came home with lots of sausages: a big andouille and a blood sausage.

ESQ: You know your pork.

CH: I can see it in Esquire — “I know my pork!” Oh, my gosh, you’ve had chocolate-covered bacon, right? It’s so perfect.

How can I love her anymore?  *SIGH*
You can read the rest of her interview here.
P.S. Season Three of “Mad Men“, one the the best shows on TV, starts this Sunday, August 16th on AMC.
