Saving Winooski's bacon

The Sneakers restaurant in pretty Winooski, Vermont, maintains a flower garden in a local traffic island. Alas, it got run over, and the restaurant was offered a road sign to show the community's support and gratitude. The resulting sign asked drivers to Yield for Sneakers Bacon, in tribute to its thick slices of Canadian bacon.

Isn't that sweet? Well, a Muslim resident didn't think so, and a couple months after the sign went up, she decided it was offensive to anyone who doesn't eat pork. So the sign was taken down.

I wonder if the Muslim lady knows that observant Jews don't eat pork, either? Perhaps she and the rabbi could get together over breakfast at Sneakers and ... oh, well, never mind!
