What is it with people who are obsessed with bacon? I mean, I'm all for creativity with food... Seeing someone make a flute out of a carrot is very cool. But this obsession with putting bacon in everything is just plain disturbing. Take for example, bacon ice-cream... ICK!
Sure, I used to like bacon - before I realised the piglet on my plate had his tail cut off (cutting through bone), his testicles sliced off, and his teeth snapped down to the marrow (and nerves) inside - all without pain relief. It's hard to tell yourself "but it tastes good" when you know that BLT was an abused animal - especially when you could have a tasty FLT (facon, lettuce and tomato) without any casualty.
Now, I can't help but feel ill when I see some of the putrid products people produce from pigs. You roam the internet a little and you'll notice people have gone batty on bacon. A little while ago, I started a list of things I would never want as a present. Well today I want to add to my un-wishlist all those gastly bacon creations, and every bacon flavoured, scented or look-alike product out there. Here are just a few of those dreadful ideas:
Bacon Tuxedo: Apparently this suit not only looks like bacon, but it has been chemically treated to smell like bacon. So just like real bacon, it probably increases your risk of cancer.
Bacon Mints: If BK Flame was the perfect way to ruin your first date. Then this is guaranteed to ruin your first kiss.
Bacon Bra: I don't think I need to tell you how many ways this is wrong! *shudder*|
I could keep going, but I think I've had enough of thinking about dead pigs.
What do you think of this obsession with bacon? Got another 'craze' that bugs you? Leave a comment.
