      The folks at John F. Martin make a quality luncheon meat, too. Typical story though … you go to the store to steal a pound of meat and you end up walking out with a bunch of different lubricants, razors, and some soap. Heard it once, heard it a million a time.

        We’ll never find the culprits. Practically everyone is in pain or has sinus problems and the only clue is if they actually use the soap and aren’t stinking like bacon.
