Wasn't us, we swear!

If you haven't checked out F My Life, it can be an entertaining read, I even have the iPhone app.

Bacon Jason and I can totally understand this post, but it was not us. We are fans, fanatics even, but neither of us has had "The Bacon Dream".

Just wanted to be on record with that.

Spittin Bacon.

Do you like sunflower seeds?  Well we all know bacon makes everything better, the folks at BIGS Sunflower seeds have partnered up with our old friends at J&D and voila Sizzlin Bacon Seeds!  I can't wait to try these, you can order some for yourself here.  Love their tag line "Anything + bacon = awesome!"  True... true...

Snake 'N' Bacon

New on Adult Swim....

This was originally a comic book, does it make me a nerd that I knew that?

Healthy Living....

That may seem like an odd title for a post on a blog about bacon. Bacon Jason and I have spouted the wonderful health benefits to anyone within earshot for a long time, most think we are crazy. We think that they are just sheep that believe anything the poultry and beef conglomerates tell them, but this is no time for conspiracy scientific theories.

Well its not just us bacon loving lords any more. Checkout Bon Appetit's slide show on "surprising" healthy foods. Whats that on slide one....? Bacon?!? (wasn't a surprise to us here at LoB). Monounsaturated baby... that's the good kind.

I was fully with it until they said "Of course, moderation is key here...." Had me... then ya lost me. I mean if someone was gonna give you a million dollars do you stop them at $10,000 because you want to be moderate? When your woman says "No its all about you, lay back and enjoy this" do you stop her part way through and say "That's a moderate amount.. I'm good, you can stop". Yeah, me neither. Last I checked, you only got one go around in life, and its far to short to deprive oneself of bacon, moderation be damned.

OK any of my friends that print this up and bring it to me in the hospital after some sort of coronary, or worse to my funeral if the old ticker stops ticking....... that's pretty damn funny.

Bacon: Live!

I wish I was going to be in NYC this June.  There is going to be a little show at Joe's Pub entitled Mysteries Of The Unexplained: BACON!  I ask you, how can you go wrong with that?!?

Show description:

Mike Daisey returns to Joe’s Pub with a one-night orgy of all things bacon: from sizzling fat to swine flu, from baco-bits to Hasids to Charlotte’s Web. In one delicious hour we’ll explore bacon in all its filthy, gorgeous deliciousness. 

Note: Bacon will be cooked and served by the performer during the performance. 

I would show up just for the bacon!  Add to it that Mike Daisey gives great monologue and you got an evening to be remembered.   I really hope someone goes to this and can give us a review.

Mmmm Meat and Potatoes

I have always been a meat and potatoes kind of guy. So I am very excited by this new product:

Bakon Vodka!

Now they spell bacon with a k and I am hoping that it is for trademarking purposes, not because it is some artificial bacon like krab is to crab meat. The bottle also reads "A Premium Bacon Flavored Vodka", I suppose that could be taken to mean a premium vodka that is bacon flavored, or the way I want to take it, a vodka flavored with premium bacon.

We are going to have to find a bottle of this like right away and give it a taste or twenty and let you all know how it turns out. It is only available in the northwest, anybody up for shipping us a bottle??

Check out the site there are some great recipe ideas, you can also sign up to find out when it hits your zip code.

I gotta see if I have any old friends in Seattle...
