Bacon isn't that good.

Do  they have dog bacon? Because dog bacon is the best.

Bacon is overused in American cuisine.

Better than the annual Blue Ribbon Beer festival in Portland, Oregon, which features more than 600,000 pounds of snobby, elitist hipsters and the unintelligible music that comes with it.

10/10. Pithy and declarative. You're going to get a lot of bites with that.

Bacon's nice and all but more than a few pieces in a sitting is overdoing it.  I prefer other foods for gorging.  Like tonight's charity crab feast.

A reason to visit DM...

Other than Iowa Interstate and Union Pacific?

Bacon not needed.

Ah yes. 600,000 reasons why I don't live there anymore.

Any good non traditional recipies that use bacon? I have been toying with incorporating American bacon into eggs Benedict but having limited success. Grease from the bacon throws the dish off.

Bacon-wrapped dates

Wrap pitted dates with bacon (aprox 3" strip) and skewer with a toothpick
Place on a broiling rack, set oven to broil, and broil for about 10 minutes w/ the oven door slightly open
Turn dates over, and broil for about another 10 minutes
Repeat until just before the bacon turns crisp

Not unless they can change it to Asbury Park, NJ, change the date to Halloween, and have 5000+ Goths all descend on the place at the same time. :)

Someone let them know that all the hipsters are crazy about Sriracha sauce now. Bacon was a few years ago.

If my high-school experiences with Punks and Goths has anything to do with it, you'll want the "Benson & Hedges" music festival... it's over thataway... --->

Just follow the sounds of Shriekback.

If anyone still buys their bacon out of those awful plastic vacuum sacks instead of from their butcher then, well, you just don't get it.

Eat French style. Small portions, tons of flavor.

/not fat

No such thing as a butcher where I live, we're lucky we have a grocery store. At least Wegmans sells more than one kind of bacon...

The actually taste of bacon aside, I'm pretty much over it with the internet's obssession with bacon. OMG they covered [whatever] with bacon, so random and funny LOLOLOLZzzzzz! The schtick is old.

United States of Bacon!

The only show on TV where the host has the inevitable funeral arrangements written into his contract.
