Bacon is good for you.

Potato chips, not so much.

It's because of the nitrates. And that's good because they're cheaper than day rates

Please let the fact that there are only 12 comments here mean that the bacon meme is dead.

Give an adult human something sweet and they'll lick their lips. This might sound obvious, but when you take it to the next level in terms of detail and rigour you start to get a powerful system for telling how much an animal likes a particular type of food. Taste reactivity involves defining the reactions precisely - for example, lip-licking would be defined as "a mild rhythmic smacking, slight protrusions of the tongue, a relaxed expression accompanied sometimes by a slight upturn of the corners of the mouth" - and then looking for this same expression in other species. A baby human can't tell you they like the taste like an adult can, but you can see the same expression. A chimpanzee will do the same with a sweet taste. A rat won't do exactly the same thing, but they do something similar. By carefully observing and coding the facial expressions that accompany nice and nasty tastes, you can tell what an animal is enjoying and what they aren't.

I must be weird because you give me something sweet and I'll eat it and make a nasty face but something sour or bitter and I'll smile with glee. Seriously, even thinking of eating something sweet makes me sick to my stomach, the closest I get to sweets are chocolate chip cookies and brownies.

I'll see your bacon bowl and raise you the bacon blanket that was on my burger this afternoon.
