Last night we got together with all the family- about 15 in all. Great amounts of different food, liquor, beer, babies, etc. Every year, my wife brings "meat candy". It's little smoky sausages wrapped in bacon and topped with brown sugar. You line them up in the pan and bake them until the sugar melts and the bacon crisps. They're very good. When they come out of the oven, there is about 1/2" of grease left. When the grease cooled, my Sister in Law poured it into a green solo cup. Meanwhile, my uncle is hammered and yammering on about his favorite beers. He's quite the aficionado. I grabbed the green solo cup of grease and set it front of him. I told him it was a special Christmas stout that was smoked and made with maple. He eyed it up, raised the cup, inhaled deeply and expounded on the aroma of this "special beer". He took a huge pull on the cup and swallowed. He licked his lips and this look came over his face. He looks at me and says "I hope that wasn't expensive, that crap tasted like bacon grease!" The whole table erupted and he sat there and finally realized it was bacon grease. In spite of what he just drank, he gently swore vengeance. Everyone at the table was laughing so hard they were crying.
