  • Bacon is the enemy...

    ...according to this woeful piece on Yahoo today. Apparently bacon is the second biggest contributor to salt in our diets after, yep, you guessed it, bread. So naturally, it's time to quit the bacon.

    Let the facepalms commence...

        I agree, you should all give up bacon now! I'm a team player, and willing to jump on this grenade for the team. Send me your bacon and I'll dispose of it for you, at no extra cost to you. Because I'm your friend.

          I guess the centerpiece of stupidity is that they made an article about the harms of salt in bacon, and in that same article describe how it's the second biggest source of salt, behind bread.

          Yahoo must have got their geniuses to write this one...

            Bacon is the Chuck Norris of food. No matter what anyone says, bacon always wins.

                Bacon is proof that the Universe loves us, and wants us to be happy.

                Yes, I stole that, but bacon is better than beer. Really.

                    Yahoo news is the equivalent of a (insert adjective) (insert disease) on the side of your (insert body part) that makes it extremely painful to (insert every day activity). But you somehow live with the (above disease) because you've convinced yourself that having it (insert synonym for removed) would interfere with (above every day activity) for 2-3 days, and that would just be unbearable. When asked about it you say "(insert random words of wisdom)".
                    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

                      You think bacon is salty, try salt pork.

                        I think seaweed is the saltiest thing I eat nowadays. I doubt yahoo would call seaweed unhealthy. I wager nobody would. But I am also in the minority who doesn't like bacon and feels wary of it because of all the chemicals that go into its preparation. If I cured my own in a traditional way with just salt, paprica and garlic, I would be happy. But last year, when we asked for our pork belly from our pork to be left uncured, but cut up into 1 lbs pieces, we've got... cured, unsliced bacon. The worst of both worlds. I am still bitter.

                              Oh my, then you must learn to make a good pork belly. With the crispy skin and everything. You won't be bitter anymore.
