The Name of My Blog

So how did I come upon the blog name of "There are many fish in the sea ... but there's only one bacon."

I was talking to a friend about dating and relationships.  She told me about one of her friends who had considered converting religions so he could marry his girlfriend.  She remarked that if he converted, he would no longer be able to eat pork.  I then remarked something to the effect, "I don't think I could do that.  There are many fish in the sea, but there's only one bacon."

We all laughed.

As I thought about it later, I realized this might be the greatest quote I've ever said in my life.

1) It references an old dating/breakup trope ("There are many fish in the sea ..."), so it relates to relationships and the suggestion I might pick bacon (well .. pork) over the woman of my dreams.  This by itself makes the quote funny.

2) Fish also happen to be food, so the quote ends up working out relating to the fact one food is tastier than another.

I thought, "This quote is amazing!"  So now it's the title of my blog.
