    Paul Bunyan was a mighty big loggin' man who had a mighty big appetite.
    This was the way the cooks at the logging camp greased the frypan to get ready to
    make flapjacks for Paul's breakfast. Of course, the flap jacks were so big, the cooks needed to use a steam shovel to flip 'em.

    A woman has bacon tied to her feet in a giant frying pan.
    This renders your argument invalid

    This is probably the best way to grease a pan of this size before starting to fry stuff in it.

    She certainly had a radiant smile and a beautiful face!
