“I feel that I will never cease
To hold in admiration grease.
It's grease makes frying things so crackly,
During and after. Think how slackly
Bacon lies before its grease
Effusively secures release.”—Southern humorist Roy Blount Jr., “Song to Grease,” in Save Room for Pie: Food Songs and Chewy Ruminations (2013)
