XKCD Web Comic #1054: The bacon (described)

A web comic of romance,
sarcasm, math, and language.


Scene: Drawing of two stick figures standing and talking. The one on the left is wearing a white boater-style hat.

Hat Guy: I’m out of work, but I’m not stressed about it because my wife is a pharmacist and she brings home the bacon.


Only later did I learn that “the bacon” is the common name for dihydrocodeine enol acetate, a synthetic opioid similar to vicodin.

Hover text: Normally pronounced “THEH-buh-kon”, I assume.


Warning: This comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors). Comic by Described by BlindGadget under the Creative Commons license.
