“Umm…Was that a piece of our robot?”
“Maybe we should have been named ‘Exploding Robots’ instead of ‘Exploding Bacon’…”
“Whats that in the sky? Is it a bird? A plane? It’s SPAM!!!”
Student on Left: “What is that thing?”
Student on Right: “I don’t know. It looks like a flying pig.”
Student on Left: “Eww, look what he left on your hat!”
Driver on left: Hey dude, what’s that smell?
Driver on right: I’m not sure, but I think this piece of exploded pig on my head is going bad. I guess we should have listened to wendymom when she said it wouldn’t last all weekend.
Coach in background: I’m outta here!

Notice the coach in the lower left corner. I don’t think it has an official Coach button.
It’s also a bit disturbing that the driver has four arms.
Somehow this brings the saying “When pigs Fly!” to mind. I don’t know why it just does.
James: Man oh man - Scott, you think our Senior year is going to be as good as this?
Scott: I don’t see how, the GDC would have to kick it into overdrive to beat this.
Student 1: Do you think we can rewire this LCD screen?
Student 2: Do you think it would short out that blue light?
Student 1&2: Ooh, blue light…
After this very sucessful match, the whole alliance was unfortunately disqualified after the referees realized the stuffed little piggy members of the team were not wearing safety glasses while in the alliance station.
The term “Exploding Bacon” was coined shortly after a driver, wearing a pink pig hat, had his head explode when their robot
didn’t score in Autonomous. The pig did not fare well.

This little piggy went to market
This little piggy stayed home
This little piggy went to an awesome robotics competition and…
oh. not pretty.
James:Why are we here?
Scott: I don’t know, why are any of us here. It’s one of those big questions of life isn’t it. Do we all have a purpose, or are we all just here by some odd cosmic coincedence? I don’t know man, but it keeps me up at night.
James:…No I mean why are we at the field, the match hasn’t started yet.
Operator: dude! I think we just ringed mo’ bacon than the pan can handle!
Mythbusters -Episode 187
In “Fly Bacon”, Adam and Jamie tackle the rumor that pigs can fly.
They attempt to create the myth that at the 2007 FIRST Championship,
Team 1902’s fuzzy pig mascot was launched by an exploding toroid game piece 270 ft. and lodged itself in the ceiling rafter.
Oink, Oink, Boom is supposed to them, not us.
“I’m sorry, but I don’t think the stuffed pig will meet FIRST’s safety standards to qualify as a forehead protector.”
I am the guy on the right. This is what was really said.
Guy on right: Dude what was the score of that last match?
Guy on left: I don’t know. Why don’t we stare at the board until the score shows up.
James: Look at the pretty blue light. Its almost… hypnotic. I know why moths do this.
George: Who ever came up with the idea of 3/4 length sleeves? Perhaps If I stand behind scott, no one will notice me because of his obnoxiously awesome hat.
