unholy bacon Friday

Apparently Friday has become Random Food Posting day, and Writtenwyrdd wins the prize today for these bacon-related links.

First, did you know that John Scalzi put bacon on his cat? Ya, he did. It's right here. Also, now he's the world authority on bacon, so if you have any bacon stories you should send them all to John Scalzi, right now.

Second, are you throwing a cocktail party and simultaneously really, really bored and ambitious? Because then you can make these awesome bacon cup appetizers!! And since I'm a pagan without any religion, I can eat them any day, even Friday. (Sorry to all observant Jews, Muslims, Catholics, and vegetarians, none of whom can eat bacon today.)

If they'd had modern day bacon slicers in medieval times, they'd have invented frogmen way way earlier.

Hahaha! I knew you would like that!

word veri, I kid you not: fliess

Flies? Why, that's rather appropriate?

The only way those bacon cups could be any better is if you filled them with bacon. Or balanced one on a cat's head. Or both!

I saw this on FARK.com a long time ago, and I used my detective skills to relocate the image. It is Bacon Nirvana:

In other news, there is a BaconToday website.

Some of the links on Scalzi's Canonical Bacon Page are so bizarre it's indescribable. Like a replica AK-47 made of bacon. *headscratch*

Bacon as dishware? That's my idea of heaven.

Stuart Neville said...

I am most intrigued my the idea of Bacon Salt. I intend on purchasing some next time I visit the US. Seriously.

PurpleClover said...

ooh, gotta love bacon wrapped filet, or bacon wrapped asparagus, or even the bacon croissandwiches at BK (which I had this morning...yum!).

hmm...now i'm hungry.

Sarah Laurenson said...

But I can have veggie bacon.

Kat Harris said...

Meh...Lent is over. Catholics are free to eat meat whenever and wherever.

It doesn't matter. Every year for lent, I give up eating fish on Friday.

Word Verf: Gutte -- the body part that grows the largest when you eat too much bacon.

Of course you know of the Baconcyclopedia?

Charles Gramlich said...

I had bacon and cheese hash browns this morning. Mymmmmm

There is no food better than a solid bacon sandwich. I was vegetarian for 22 years, and it was such a bacon sandwich that made me crack.

And my husband once balanced his beer-bottle on our cat's head. She sat, perfectly still, for nearly 15 minutes with it there, purring and dozing. She loves him: she would not have allowed anyone else to do it (I use a photograph of it as my avatar at Absolute Write, where I post as Old Hack), and as she's both Siamese and ever-so-slightly brain-damaged, I'm amazed she managed to sit still for so long, let alone be happy doing it.

Unlike the photo here, though, no artificial aids were used in the affixing.

I had carmelized bacon at a cocktail party recently and it was beyond delicious. *Everyone* was eating it, along with some little cocktail pigs in a blanket. The caterer couldn't get enough of it out.

Now I'm hungry.

Sweeeeet. Bacon cups.
I love when people use the internet for good.

Rebecca Knight said...

Mmmmm... I once saw someone make a sandwich using woven bacon pieces as bread. Low carb, right? :D

Also, I had no idea that Mr. Scalzi was a Bacon Nut! I'll never be able to read Old Man's War again without giggling and thinking "Mmm, bacon."

Thanks, Moonrat!

Oh, man, as a self-proclaimed bacon lover, this is the post for me. I got this email from someone this week. Chocolate AND bacon. Life is complete.

Well, it's Saturday now, and no longer BaconFriday, but we shouldn't forget that mind-blowing cool dude who has written a book to teach Ruby programming with the help of two foxes and Chunky Bacon. http://poignantguide.net/ruby/whatisit.html

Apparently Bacon gets around these days.

Ooo, yummy! I believe I need bacon salt too, Stuart and I even have A Source. My sister is coming to visit the end of July. I'd be happy to mail you some if you're in the EU.

Chris Eldin said...

Now you're combining CATZ with funky food?!
It doesn't get any better...

I've been reading Scalzi's blog for awhile, and if everybody emails him stuff about bacon, I guarantee he will post on his blog asking everybody to please stop emailing him about bacon.

My own personal bacon story: I once cooked bacon at 3 in the morning, wearing only underpants and an apron, specifically so that I could photograph myself in the act and post the picture online reasons I can no longer remember. It was funny and cool at the time. No, you cannot see the picture. Unless you bribe me with bacon.

Jolie--I have a delicious BLT sitting right here...
