I like bacon. I enjoy bacon. But I do not understand the internet's obsession with bacon. I mean yes it is tasty but so is a lot of food...

Because bacon is the easiest way to obtain tasty food, and the internet is lazy.

Bacon is one of the greatest gifts mankind has ever given itself.  It is a true wonder.

But THIS is the Necter of the Gods:

Look, roasted Duck (with a delicate orange or cherry sauce) is easy to make but you've got to stay away from the store bought stuff. Go shoot your own, then you'll know.

Much of their bad news is highly suspect or WRONG.     Saturated fat and cholesterol are not the same thing  and are not related iN THE FOOD.    You can argue if one metabolizes into the other in vivo, but they're first point is half wrong.

Arguing that people who eat bacon might otherwise eat unhealthy is SPURIOUS.   Giving up or eating bacon isn't going to change anything there.

Don't get me started on sodium.   The vast majority of the population doesn't need to worry about Sodium PERIOD.    Unless you've got some specific cardiovascular problem or are on dialysis or such, excess sodium is just excreted.   There's NEVER been any conclusive evidence that people are better or worse off for consuming sodium in the general population.

Further, these clowns who quote highly reputable medical journals such as the Huffington Post (chortle), obviously haven't been near a pig or agribusiness.    I do a whole hog every memorial day and go to my little hmong farmer and get one "off the hoof."    The bigger threat to public health over caged versus free range pigs (chortle again) is the fact that much of the industry is recklessly using antibiotics in the process for no other reason than increasing weight gain on the animals.    This is bad.    Even some of the bigger producers are beginning to relent.  Even if you don't go organic, many are going processed verified.   While organic meats are costing many times the regular in my market, I'm beginning to find USDA Processed Verified meats (notably Frank Perdue and even much of the store brand beef) which precludes antibiotics.

Must have been half written by a vegan.

After reading I am craving bacon on a stick from Dempsys in Baltimore.

The internet just likes obsession. Planking, those bad english cat macros, chuck norris, etc.. I've noticed that I can't go more than an hour without someone mentioning sriracha like it's some new thing, I think it's going to be the next bacon. Yay, I get to hear a bunch of idiots go on about something I got tired of twenty years ago....again. I guess maybe it's a generational thing.

Ahh bacon, the Lindsy Lohan of food. Looks so good and tasty when young, but turns into an old dried up unappealing hot mess.

Bacon - good
Bacon flavored/infused anything - vile

That's it.  For lunch today it's chocolate covered bacon on a stick with a side of srircha.

Last month I fixed a toilet on a boat with bacon grease.  I'm pretty sure that's the last thing on the list bacon needed to do.

According to Dana Cowin on Top Chef, yes. The fad should be over as well as the "Kale fad" whatever that was...

We seem to have a bacon/sriracha trifecta in play today.  Which is probably among the reasons when I tell people "you should check out FARK.com," they look at me with suspicion after they've done so.

Had a gig at a food industry trade show in Florida years ago, and came home with a sample bottle of Siracha.  Liked hot sauce and liked that stuff, but now I'm content with just a bottle of good old Frank's cayenne pepper sauce.

/tastes fine with bacon and eggs

This. I like bacon as much as the next person, but come on.

Let's get on with the next food meme: Sichuan peppercorns! What other food can make you feel like you've stuck your tongue on a 9-volt battery?

The bacon meme needs to die. You're not cool or clever for pretending that it's the best food in the world and you can't live without it. It was funny when Jim Gaffigan did it, but now it's just tired.

If you don't think it's a trend, just look at Google statistics and see that volume of searches for bacon have doubled since 2005, with one point in the last year where it was almost triple. Searches for 'bacon funny' (basically, you guys looking for witty bacon images) went from a statistical zero in 2007, to peak this year. It's becoming the food version of Daft Punk!

Naw. During your lovemaking the friction will cook the bacon to the proper temperature, which means your mate can have a delicious snack after you get done giving her the ol' "in/out".

bacon flavored whiskey is awful, but bacon cheeseburgers are delicious.
