Cooking and Eating the Bacon

"Brrrr." Julian muttered as he stepped out of the freezer.

Crissy handed him his coffee sludge. She told him, "The eggs are almost finished, so I  turned the oven on."

"Cool."

"You've got a pig back there?"

"Most of one."

"Huh."

"Yup."

"Where'd you get your eggs?"

"God." Julian laughed. "I got them from God."

"Very funny."

"No, I'm serious. I know a guy named Jesus, Hey Zeus, really, but we call him God for short. He raises chickens, hens and cocks, and I did him a favor last year, helped him keep his chicken farm."

"There are no chicken farms in Detroit."

Julian smiled, "You're right: There aren't." he replied.
