Am I being unfair if I express doubt that bacon simmered with greens and/or peas will be one, or possibly two, of the dishes on the menu?

Okay, it's late, I'm tired and about to get myself into massive trouble, but I'm sort of past caring. It should be noted that I have indeed been a qualified fighter.

How come nobody gets their hosen in a twist about the portrayal of fighters in this event concept? I like bacon as much as anybody (and more than many), but why does my alleged poor diet, questionable taste, vegetable avoidance and high fat and sodium intake have to be such a big part of our culture?
