Today's edition of The Missing Links contains TV and food. And that's pretty much it. Because who doesn't like those?

Gone Too Soon: TV Character Edition
Try not to tear up as you read through the 30 Saddest Television Deaths.

And since people hate spoilers, I will tell you not to read this if you’re halfway through any of the following series:

Beverly Hills, 90210, The Simpsons, Prison Break, The Sopranos, Scrubs, Cheers, Brothers and Sisters, Charmed, How I Met Your Mother, Game of Thrones, Alias, The West Wing, Archie Bunker’s Place, Desperate Housewives, Dawson’s Creek, M*A*S*H, Degrassi, Dexter, The Wire, E.R., Lost, Sesame Street, Rescue Me, Grey’s Anatomy, Six Feet Under, Mad Men, The O.C., Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or Futurama

You’ve been warned. Although, if you’re watching the entire series of Sesame Street, you’re rather odd.

Speaking of TV Deaths
Typically when your favorite shows are cancelled, they’re just gone forever. Every once in a while, though, the fans make enough noise to raise them from the dead.

Adding Bacon to Something DOESN’T Always Make It Better
Let’s quit with all the bacon. There has been far too much bacon love lately. Adding bacon to something doesn’t always make it better. We can do without the bacon sundae.

The bacon nosebleed solution, on the other hand, really has some merit.

Adding Pizza to Something DOES Always Make It Better
Making a pizza out of pizza-flavored foods? Yes. That is acceptable and necessary. I believe a great man once said that making a pizza out of pizza-flavored Doritos, Pringles, Goldfish, Combos and hummus was “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. I may be remembering that incorrectly, but I don’t think so.

Another thing that needs more pizza? Vending machines.

Everyone’s favorite lanky, red haired talk show host really got acclimated to his Chicago surroundings by fully embracing the local cuisine.
