Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Iowans celebrate the Bacon Festival by eating giant bacon-infused doughnut balls topped with chocolate and more bacon. "I mean, really, you wouldn't see this baconfest happening in California"

I'm morbidly curious to see how California would respond to this.


"Hey California! Iowa called."

"Huh?"

"Iowa. You know- under Minnesota. Anyway, they must have got their corn crop in, cause they're havin' a festival. Anyways, once again, they left a pissy message for ya to tell ya yer not invited."

"Iowa... Are we related to them? Are they the Hoosiers?"

"No, that's Indiana. Iowa's their hick cousin."

"Are they the funny-lookin' farmers with the three-month growing season? Whole state bout the size of one of our counties? Whole state's got just one altitude?"

"Yeah, that's them. They're a little bigger than that. Anyway, they said you weren't creative enough to celebrate bacon."

"Yeah, I remember them. We flew over them when we went to New York last month. They still braggin' bout killin Buddy Holly? Oh, and dude, Bacon? You called me out of my state-wide orgy month to tell me this because???"

"What should I tell 'em?"

"Huh? Oh yeah. Tell 'em thanks for the invite, we're all comin' next year. *snerk* OK now, Mila this time I want you reverse-cowgirl, and Scarlett, you do that other thing I taught you. Oh, and peel me a grape. That's right, now roll it in sugar..."

theoneontheleft: Pfffff. That's nothing. Their "bacon" is just one step away from grass, which is practically lettuce.

That's why I only eat bacon made from pigs that were raised on a diet of bacon.


That is not funny, dude. I have seen pigs eat testicles.

1/3 lb cheddar cheese chunks
Mayonnaise
Fresh cracked black pepper
Salt liberally with Kosher salt

that actually sounds good.


Actually... I have steamer bags of peas, a bag of shredded cheddar... but no mayo. I could substitute ranch dressing, I guess.

And that will be only the second time I eat since I woke up 8am Saturday.

In California they have caffeinated bacon and baconated grapefruit. Take that!

Lionel Mandrake: "I mean, really, you wouldn't see this baconfest happening in California. Only in Iowa will people come together to eat a bunch of bacon-covered bacon."

I love bacon as much as the next guy, but when you're trying to one-up that next guy by clogging your arteries, it's time to reevaluate your priorities.


C'mon man. It's all they've got. Eating a large amount of bacon is the only achievement most Iowans can hope to accomplish. Let them have their psuedo-glory.

I'd like to defend California on this count

but I can't. Somehow these idiots forget how to drive in the rain every frikken year! You might think Darwin would take care of them, but no, they hit standing water at 80mph, spin out, hit the barrier and survive! I've begun to think cars have too many safety features these days.

Back on subject, Moike is right, the Bay Area has access to great bacon.

Yes a whole state, with two major metropolitan areas of 17 and 7 million, both of which already more than twice as populous as the whole state of Iowa, don't already hold their own individual bacon fests.

Yes, its impossible a super fruity hippie vegan city like SF would ever allow a Bacon Truck, that sells mass quantities of bacon to drive around every weekday lunch hour and encourage patrons to eat a bouquet of bacon. They would definitely never have a restaurant that serves a bacon cheeseburger on a doughnut and a monte cristo sandwich made out of a waffle with deep fried chicken inside. Never at all! All we eat is tofu, all the sex we have is gay, and we all hate america.

tehbeermang: Bacon is good for you (new window)


Well, considering my diet and activity routine... bacon comes second only to eggs and potatoes as staple foods. And considering I'm bigger and leaner than I've been in a long time, I wouldn't really call that a bad thing. Of course, heavy weight lifting and a shiat ton of hiking and climbing probably shifts my ideal nutrient amounts and ratios way out of line with sedentary people, the same way I need more Mg and Vitamin A and B-12 than a teetotaler because I'm a heavy drinker, or to up antioxidants and general cardio work because I'm a chain smoker. Everyone should learn (at least)basic nutrition and adapt to their needs for individual body type, metabolism, and general activity level.

I try to keep the ridiculous bacon recipes I've developed over the years down a bit though, who the fark would ruin good bacon with doughnuts and chocolate? Doughtnuts are worthless as far as I'm concerned, and chocolate should be enjoyed by itself. On the other hand, once every few weeks I'll weave bacon together and cook it in the oven, then use it like bread, usually for a grilled pepper jack cheese and carne asada sandwich. Shrimp is sometimes added, or used in place of the beef. In general day to day use, I'll just add a couple slices to a salad or scramble though, rather than that whole mess. About the only practical use for that kind of thing is after a few days doing survival camping and coming up short on food the whole time, and even then you have to wonder, still farking delicious though.

Sorry about that, I posted something near identical. I moved over to get the link and started reading all the appalling stuff made from garlic. Shows I should have linked and posted.

California is to Iowa like the United States is to Canada.


So, what you are saying is that Americans are moving to Canada to find jobs and then biatching to Canadians about how great it was back in America?

Lived in Austin, TX as it was being overrun by Californians looking for work. They had the gall to sit there and brag about how great California was while slamming Texas and always refering to, "This is how we did it back in California"! Yeah, and that's why California is broke and you moved here! We care how you did it in California only as a reference as to how not to do it here.

Also, am I the only one who gets a vibe that bacon is Fark's beloved hipster trend?

Sure, it's a classic, but the renewed reverence Fark holds it in feels uncannily like the revival of Pabst.

Thanks for finally coming out of the closet. I'm sure your parents are relived they can finally give up the charade of acting like they didn't know already that all you have is gay sex. Like never being married, never bringing a girl home, bringing guys home for Xmas because "His family is out of the country", and living in the Bay Area for years never tipped them off as to your only having gay sex.

Grass-fed, locally sourced artisanal bacon on a bed of organic kale.

With a side of cruelty-free tofu baconlike product for the vegetarians.

There is nothing bacon like about tofu and you know it. Either get real or don't bother.
I just ate a pan full of brussels sprouts with Hempler's black pepper bacon. I am full an eyeballing a bacon donut for dessert.
Not to worry, I'm having some red wine to make sure my arteries are clear.

Are you farking kidding me? Iowa's Bacon Festival is only five years old when the whole goddamn state is a giant pig farm? That is sheer negligence. California's been doing organized bacon for at least a couple of years, which isn't bad for a state that doesn't smell like pig shiat.

I'm a San Franciscan born and raised, we had our share of hyenas but then the tech start-ups landed, which begat the a flood of rich yuppie dudes (not good), which begat waves of gold diggers (also not good). Somehow in the last decade that hottie infusion has raised the bar considerably.

Any reason you seem so obsessed with gay sex? Here we are in a thread about bacon and it seems all you can focus on is gay sex. Just look at this post, you entire response is a non-sequitor about gay sex. The guy you respond to talks about all sorts of food and makes one sarcastic quip about the San Francisco stereotype, and your whole response is to leap into this odd rant about being gay.

I'm morbidly curious to see how California would respond to this.

Something spectacular, no doubt. California has a town whose name, translated from Spanish, literally means "Lard." Iowa will really have to bring its A-game to compete with that.

This is true. I lived in Manteca for 17 years. Sadly, there's no lard fest.


Sure there is...the Manteca Walmart.

What you do is make biscuits with bacon in the dough, then you top 'em with country ham, then sausage gravy.

NOM.
