Wagon Wheels & The Bacon Wannabe

Everyone knows that nothing beats Bacon, except of course, Chuck Norris

But once upon a time, in a little known country town of Bree-Land there was a duo who dared confront Chuck Norris. Their names were Waigone and Sasquatch. Everyone called them by their outlaw nicknames of Wagon Wheel and Sausage. They were always raising a fuss around town, trying to pick a fight just so they could earn more glory for themselves. But Chuck wouldn't have it. He rode into town and stared them down. You know, his stare alone can make grass stop growing or get an innocent girl pregnant from across the street. But this stare, this one had never before been seen and would not be, could not be endured. Waigone and Sasquatch cooked themselves right up and served up on a silver platter, right there in the middle of the road. Chuck picked up the plate and walked into the Prancing Pony and sat himself down to have a bite to eat. He was a bit disappointed as to how his stared turned out though. He had intended for there to be bacon with his wagon wheels, and instead he ended up with sausage, the ultimate bacon wannabe.
