CNBC reporting on the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival:
The festival features 10 different types of bacon, plus all things bacon — bacon sausage, bacon meatballs, bacon doughnuts, bacon butterscotch cupcakes — even a walking slab of bacon! There’s a bacon-eating contest, bacon lectures and a bacon song contest — and yes, there’s a crowning of the Bacon Queen! Contestants are asked questions like their favorite memory of bacon, their favorite kind of bacon and their favorite way to cook bacon (the most common answer is “naked,” incidentally).
It sounds magical.
Pretty sure I saw this one a while back and forgot to post it, now it’s making the rounds again. If you ever needed instructions for how to make a bouquet of roses out of bacon, the internet has the answer for you.
Roses are red,
Bacon is also red,
Poems are hard,
I don’t mention bacon related things nearly enough on this blog for some reason. I’ll work on that. I happen to like bacon and know a thing or two about it.
Someone actually tried the now infamous cheeseburger in a can. After reading it, and seeing the pictures of it prepared I can now form a solid conclusion. It must be a complete waste of calories. How the hell can a cheeseburger have a bitter aftertaste? There are so many things in this world that I would eat before that. I’ve tasted dog treats for money before. I’d eat them for free before eating a cheeseburger out of a can.
That post however is quite funny to read.
While on the the topic of strange foods… Has anyone ever noticed how much dog food is bacon flavored? Why can’t they do that for people food? I’d love bacon flavored cereal, etc. Bacon flavored vitamins would also be nice.
The Consumerist has a post on making your own bacon. I did not know that a mortal can make such a delicious meat. I thought you had to be at least an angel to create something so good. I knew about the Life Cycle Of Bacon, but didn’t know humans are allowed to participate in the process.
There are even photos of the magical process for viewing.
Is bacon considered red meat? I saw this on TV this morning wile flipping through the morning news. During some stock video of various red meats it was mixed in with mainly shots of beef. It comes from a pig, so I guess under the definition “anything from a mammal is red meat” it is. Though pork is traditionally white meat.
Bacon… meet tomato a
