Shark bacon?

/is shark bacon even possible?
 
2009-10-07 02:36:39 PM  
YES. I still love eating it, but christ has it ever jumped the shark.

Of all the ridiculous baconalia out there, this is something that I would actually consider trying.

Bacon and bourbon just sound so right together.

Blasphemy. All things bacon are holy.

I know. There were plenty of doubters, however. (new window)

It's good. There's a place in Uptown Mpls that's been serving it for a few years. The Town Talk Diner. I tried it last time I was in town. Initially you just taste bourbon. The after taste has an obvious smokey bacon flavor, but it's not over powering.

Just when I thought I'd had every Manhattan on the planet.

I picked a hell of a week to quit drinking.

Then, by odd coincidence, you picked a hell of a week to take up drinking again.

Is there nothing that bacon can do? Taking on the most feared predator in the high seas.....WOW!

Yep. It sure has.

I had this two weekends ago. It was tasty and fine for sipping. However, I would not want to drink more than two of them at dinner.

Yes it has jumped the shark. It's old and busted. Just like garlic back in the 90s. (Garlic is sooo 90s.) Before you know it these bacon advocates will seem sooo 00s. I think anti-meat backlash fueled this bacon-praising trend. Don't get me wrong, bacon is good, but GUSHING about bacon is old and busted. Please. Stop. Now.

I declare the new hotness: Offal (new window).

Pffft. I had an offal only dinner at the French Laundry years ago.

I was a bacon nut before it was cool to be a bacon nut.

//Duck bacon > regular bacon.

Bacon cannot jump the shark. (A pig can, but bacon, no.)
It is a case of the sharp jumping the bacon, which is its natural tendency.

Am I wasted or did that really transpire?

So many metaphors - - my brain is on fire.

Bacon can never jump the shark, bacon will consume the shark
 
2009-10-07 06:28:25 PM  
Yes. No more bacon jokes. I am sick, sick, sick of them. And I rarely get tired of even the most lame memes around here. Although bacon and bourbon doesn't sound half bad.

This is the only funny bacon joke:

You mean expensivebetter bourbon than Jim Beam?


Beam is pretty horrid

If you're going to go with cheap bourbon, at least go with Wild Turkey. If you feel like spending money, than go with Blanton's.

And bacon jumped the shark over a year ago. Yes, we all know it's delicious; let's stop talking about it.
 
2009-10-07 06:45:44 PM  
I gotta tell you, bacon as an internet meme jumped the shark about a year ago.

Farkers hold bacon in very high esteem, but I wonder how much love it. A survey:

Would you rather have bacon (1/2 lb), or:
1. Gold (1 oz)
2. Megan Fox (for 1 hour)
3. Australia (for a day)
4. White Rhino (1/2 lb, choice cut)
5. Unwatch all Michael Bay movies (forever, or until you watch again for some reason)

I now have slobber all over my screen. Thanks a lot.

/yay, bacon!

Actually, the bacon infused vodka being produced commercially comes from Seattle, not Boston or Waltham.

Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfarker. Pigs sleep and root in shiat. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.

What good would having Australia for a day do you?

Wait a minute... we can use bacon to salt the rims of margarita glasses?

A bacon and tattoo thread? Why not just divide by zero and get it over with?

bring to a festering boil: Has bacon finally jumped the shark?

Not until pigs fly.


we may not be able to farm the bastards then, but the Miracle on the Hudson would have been 100,000 times more delicious if this was the case.
