Happy Birthday Gertrude Baines


I don't know how I missed this yesterday. Gertrude Baines turned 115 and is the world's oldest person. Besides being damn sexy for 115, she is my hero. Why? Well according to Gertrude she credits her long life to a love of sweets, bacon and healthy doses of Jerry Springer and The Price Is Right. Who wouldn't love this woman?

Everything's better with bacon (and a little ranch dressing).

Happy Birthday, Gertrude!

See there you proved all of the health experts wrong.


Bacon and sweets (no sodium issues, carb issues, sugar issues, cholesterol issues or red meat issues) yummy!
