When really old people talk about their life, I think we should all listen. Pearl Cantrell is one of those old people. She is 105-years-old. This week, Pearl celebrated her 105th birthday with a three-day-long party. Cameras showed up and asked the age-old question, "How did you live so long?" Pearl was happy to oblige with the answer. Her secret to longevity, it turns out, is bacon. "I love bacon, I eat it everyday," Pearl told NBC affiliate KRBC.
There you have it!!! Bacon!!!! Not exercise, vitamins, eating vegetables. It's Bacon. Cool, but I do kind of wish she had said chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream, personally.
So, Pearl got a big birthday present from Oscar Mayer when they found out about her love of bacon. They sent the Wienermobile to make a bacon delivery to Cantrell's home. Pearl got to ride around her Texas town in the Wienermobile.
