Mystery Muffler

it's been six days since we discovered a mystery muffler in front of homer's. i predicted that it would "become part of an art display" and now it's hanging from a tree. maybe it will begin migrating like a traveling garden gnome.

Lost and Found

usually when someone forgets something at homer's it's a pair of gloves or a notebook. last week somebody lost a muffler. now i understand how absent minded we all get when we're talking and put something down and then forget about it... but seriously... anybody? anyone? bueller? it may become part of an art display if the owner doesn't claim it soon.

Bacon Flavored Coffee

brace yourselves. the next couple of sentences may change your life. if you don't have time to drink coffee AND eat bacon on a daily basis, that is no longer a problem. thanks to a winning entry in the iowa state fair you can down both things in one gulp. here's the story of one woman's goal to combine two breakfast staples into one morning-tastic drink.
