Kayelle, it's a long cable news era! Every little unusual thing gets way more attention than it's worth.

I could also be that even those who run the media zoo are sick to death of the political hoopla, and a story about some other nut is comic relief.

Isabella might want to reconsider that "engaged" thing...
Yep, and hopefully he doesn't reproduce and saddle any young'uns with that last name. Sheesh...some people will do anything to get in the news.

He could just shorten the last name to "Burger" (as in Perry Mason's DA opponent Hamilton Burger). That might appease his fiance without ending the relationship.

Take away the name and you make the girlfriend more likely to marry you!

Hmmm... name or marriage....

Tough call, huh!?

I'm not sure I could keep a straight face at the wedding

"Isabella, do you take Bacon to be your wedded husband to live together in marriage? Do you promise to love him, comfort him, honor and keep him for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and health and forsaking all others, be faithful only to him so long as you both shall live?"

Ha indeed! Or even...

"do you take Bacon to be your awful wedded husband to live together in marriage? Do you promise to go to McDonalds and feed him for better or worse, forsaking all side salads, faithful only to him until he has a heart attack?"


(Too cruel?

Then maybe change the last to Burger and the middle name to Cheese and drop the double. Bacon Cheese Burger.

Well, at least he's got two of the three food groups covered: bacon and cheese. All he needs to do now is add potato and he has the holy trinity.
