Decorno said...

Amen.

Barbara said...

Bacon, oh how easy it is to get people to comment...on bacon and their opinions, it's salty greasy and delicious also evil, evil, evil.

Decorno said...

:At the blogging panel event I was just at, we joked about my lazy "Lamp - Yes or No?" posts, and bacon came up, and well... it seemed like a dare from John for me to post this.

But seriously... bacon is so good.

This is what started it:

This is one of Megan's most popular posts ever. And why wouldn't it be? It's bacon that CAN HOLD OTHER TASTY ITEMS. Amazing.

JJ said...

always yes.

Suzy said...

Absolute YES!

Jules said...

Not after I saw a Dirty Jobs episode on pig farming. You don't want to know what they eat.

Rachel said...

Totally phoning it in.

HELL TO THE YEAH! Thank you again so much for speaking tonight. It was awesome. I am so sorry that we didn't get this event podcasted. The next one we will, along with microphones for sure! How sick is it that you get home and blog, and I get home and read your blog. Great minds think alike. Thank you again for your humor and insights tonight. You rock big time. - John from Velocity

Decorno said...

Aw, shucks... thanks John! It was really fun. And holy cow, you know how to pack in a crowd. Good job.


Rachel - I am so phoning it in. :)


Everyone else... comment moderation is OFF. Please turn off the lights when you are done, stay out of the liquor cabinet, and play nice with others!

See you all tomorrow.

Megan said...

Just wanted to say "hee hee". Thanks for doing such an early wrap up!

The Hose Winner said...

Bacon is one of the sacraments in our house so...yes.

Lisa & Alfie Wilson said...

Is there really a question here? Maybe its a trick question cause I thought there only was one answer. Oh yeah!

Maria said...

Haha, YES! It was so great to hear you speak tonight. You were so funny up there on that panel. Thanks for sharing your blogger expertise!

my little apartment said...

kristinimartini said...

it was one week ago today that i had bacon on a chocolate tart at gramercy tavern. so, uh, yesssss

Apt. #34 said...

you'll have to let us know how many hits you get off Bacon :) Great job tonight and great to meet you!

Uncle Beefy said...

Mmm...I don't know? Bacon? All that crispy, smokey, salty, fatty, goodness? No, I think I'll pass. (Yeah...pass out from eating too much damn bacon! Bring the pig!)

jane said...

As my husband says "If Jews had tasted bacon they never would have banned pork." (So as not to get anyone's panties in a bunch I'll mention that we're Jewish). Also, I was a NON meat eater for 20+ years until my husband waved repeatedly waved bacon in my face. I couldn't help it - I caved. Now I can't get enough of it's salty, fatty, yummy goodness!

tula said...

hmm, between this and the big pink hose, i'd have to say no. bacon may provide a temporary high, but the hose will last a lifetime. xoxo

Mary T. said...

Okay, I now confess: every time I write "pink hose" I laugh!!!

Bacon's gooood.

Carbonara anyone? i rest my case.

Bacon is the new Black.

Bacon as art...no. Bacon as food...of course!

Kwana said...

One of my motto's is : "Everything tastes better with bacon. EVERYTHING!"

Anonymous said...

See now I think bacon is good, just not on everything.

It annoys me that on Top Chef (Bravo channel) if the chef puts bacon in his dish, it wins every time, what's with that?

diana @ please sir said...

YES - BLT baby!

Hovey Vintage said...

Nothing in the world is better then BACON!! Yummy in the tummy!!!

Anonymous said...

Hmmmmm, for everyone sayin' "yes" read the book "Skinny Bitch" ....a real eye opener about the meat industry. I've been a vegeterian all my life, so I probably don't know what I'm missing, but still, reading this book really made me think.

Being the devout bacon lover that I am, (and having an acquired yet unrelated nickname), my friend based his final project from pastry school on bacon desserts, which were showcased at my last birthday party. You haven't lived until you've tried a maple bacon cupcake with brown butter frosting and crispy bacon sprinkles.

Everything does taste better with bacon.

alis said...

no, coz I don'T eat pork, for religious reasons. Even if it weren't banned I still would eat meat that's 50% fat. We have a similar thing here called pastirma, it looks like bacon, and its made by covering up a chunk of meat with various spices, so the spices cook it. It's like a non-dried dried thin meat slice- highly recommended if u ever come to turkey.

Sarah's Fab Day said...

Mmmmm, BACON!

Anonymous said...

My husband and I were in Portland the other weekend having the complimentary hotel breakfast (turned out to be a gargantuan mondo buffet) An *unsupervised* 10-year old boy sat down at the table next to us holding a plate HEAPED with bacon...only bacon. It was awesome.

Sarah said...

I always say YES to bacon.

Jessie said...

Call me crazy, but I like turkey bacon the best.

Also, weird weird weird way to eat bacon (I'll admit), but deLISH: Bacon, and peanut butter sandwich on sourdough bread. I know it sounds gross, but if you truly love bacon, you'll go home and try it.

Anna said...

Wait, wait! I'm "in" on this! I get it! <- that was literally the first thought I had when I saw this post. And if that's not enought to tell you The Lab event was a good way to get a conversation going among the clever, artful, snarky and sometimes OT crowd of Seattle bloggers and blog readers... I don't know what is.

bacon is God's gift to food.

Uncle Beefy said...

Hey, you win some, you lose some. Maybe you wanna just take this post down...since nobody is really leaving any comments? ;) (If this keeps up they may make bacon a controlled substance.)

Kwana said...

Oh Anonymous I do agree with the TOP CHEF judges on the bacon thing. It's always better in the right hands. They are on point with that. Not to bring another blog to dear Decorno but check out my TOP CHEF recaps.

As a proud card-carrying member of the Bacon of the Month Club - most definitely, yes!

also works as a great pickup line:

"Do you like bacon?"
"Wanna strip?"

Schmancy said...

damn girl, you move fast. Hell Yes!

Betsy said...

Yes. Twice a day if possible.

mominaledo said...

Just returned from a vacation - so eating healthy wasn't high on the list. I had so many fabulous dishes - that had bacon! Not big, greasy bacon strips - but crumbled and crunchy.

jen said...

Absolutely yes. But only crunchy and crumbled, can't stand it greasy and chewy. And if I'm going to eat bacon-I'm eating the REAL thing, none of this turkey bacon shit.

My husband likes his bacon "succulent". Mine must crunch. Strange how a word like succulent, with its positive connotation, can make me wretch when modifying so sublime a food.

icouldkillher said...

Hells to the yes. I was just telling my husband that we have to find out where Genie's restaurant in SE Portland gets its bacon - cause seriously...that shit is most awesome. I'm trying to talk like the kids - granted, the borderline developmentally disabled kids but nonetheless. This Jew loves her some bacon!

An Aesthete's Lament said...

I was at a business meeting a couple of days ago. Did I say yes to bacon? Um, yes, I did ... five times ...

Anonymous said...

aesthete's lament goes to "business meetings"?!

I feel like I am getting a visit from God every time Elaine/I Could Kill Her graces the comments section.

I know! As her chariot rides off, all us astonished peasants are left in the dust, murmuring "Did you glimpse her???"

Sacheverelle said...

Bacon is disgusting & very bad for you, obviously because of the pancreatic cancer-causing nitrates in processed meats but also because pork is probably the sketchiest of meats (tho I think all meat is sketchy). I used to feed feral cats at a hog farm & I saw up close how dirty pigs really are. They didn't seem to mind sitting in their own poop & their diet was supplemented with cafeteria waste from a state mental hospital.
Pigs will eat literally anything which makes them susceptable to internal parasites, worms, etc. Read here about why some religions forbid eating pork:

FYI did you know the blood thinner Heparin comes from pig intestine mucous?

Now, to boost your comments up into the three digits, combine "bacon" with "Grievances against Domino"--as in:

"Domino's July issue:
Bad for Bacon Eaters?"

Anonymous Hardware Guy said...

Sacheverelle: That makes them taste better.

Hell, yes to bacon! If they made bacon donuts, all shit would stop.

If the tobacco companies ever launch a bacon-wrapped cigarette, they're back in business. Unemployment rate in the Carolinas would fall to 0%.

Bacon donuts...bacon-wrapped cigarettes...

Madeleine said...

Unfortunately I randomly opened the Skinny Bitches Diet Book, when in the bookstore, and read just a teensy bit about slaughter houses. In particular some quotes from people who worked in them. I was so completely grossed out. I don't know how long I'll last not eating meat, pork or chicken, it's been a week. But no bacon for now.

No. It loses its appeal after you find out how it gets to your plate. Disgusting.
