bacon just might be the all-over-print of the meat world

Bacon is Dead! Long Live Bacon! – Peter Meehan, Salon.com

This is a great article from Peter Meehan on Salon.com today. I must admit, I hardly ever touch the stuff anymore. 

My love of bacon used to be a hedonistic escape from the mundane. Paired with peanutbutter, infused in vodka, wrapped around apples and sausage. It was a true escape, a godsend, reserved for the weekends. It allowed me to leave my suit and tie world and just cool out.

Now, bacon is so chic… so played. I’d hate to say it, but bacon just might be the all-over-print of the meat world. Don’t get me wrong, most streetwear when worn tastefully, in moderation, and innovative ways is stylish and works. Unfortunately, after reading Meehan’s article I’m begining to believe that bacon is heading for an unavoidable trainwreck.

    I don’t think anything will out right replace bacon, but people are dickriding watermellon really hard this summer (I may or may not be one of them. nh).

    Ohhh, mama. Maple Bacon Bar. Easily in my top 3 for food road trip destinations.

  5. SergDun Says:

    I’m a big fan of watermelon but it doesn’t have the versatility of bacon.

    Sandia agua frescas are the fucking truth though, that shit is the drink of life.

    I had a bacon sammich last summer. Just peppered bacon on a roll. I actually had 1 and 1/2. The first one was so good, i made a second. Couldnt finish that bitch though.

    I havent eaten much bacon since then.

    Anyway, i like the blog, been reading for a while. You chumps need to get back on the “frequent update” plan though.

    Serg is right – watermelon is way less versatile, but it’s my flavor of the week.

    It’s clearly a seasonal thing. Bacon doesn’t quench your thirst or give you a cool feeling when it’s 100 degrees and humid, like this swamp-ass DC mess.

    Watermelon is that girl with the short shorts, dangling those long legs in front of you. You’re sidetracked by her in the summer, but in the fall when those legs are covered up, you’ll quickly realize that she lacks substance and dimension and be looking for a way to toss away the rines and get back to basics.

    Fucking LIME is getting annoying and played the fuck out. All the beers are adding it to their skeez now-a-days. I just went to Grant’s Farm today with Sandy and the girls and tried Bud Light Chalada / Calamata… Do yourself a favor and don’t walk… RUN the fuck away from this one. The shit was more sick-nasty than a Lincoln Country Meth-addict… it tasted like drinking salsa with a puke aftertaste. NOTHING even closely resembling beer at all.

    But, back to lime… Chile Lime seasoning, Tequila Lime, Lime-aides, it is out of control. Every fucking major beer that is now adding Lime to it in order to make it more “hip and appealing” to the 15-18 yr old crowd. They should take a hint from Corona… if someone wants lime in their beer, they’ll squeeze it in themselves. Quit ruining beer.

    And that is my rant on the lime. Squeeze it responsibly. (perverts)

  10. JT Says:

    P.S. Also tried the “Shock Top” Belgian White… definitely worth a try. I thought it was pretty tasty… or I might’ve just put it on a pedestal after trying the Chalada.

    I’ll let you do the math.

  11. heafesaka Says:

    Bacon is my kriptonite, nigga.

  12. CeePee Says:

    Offal is the new bacon.
    Wait and see.
    Gizzards for everyone.

  13. njg Says:

    Shock Top Belgian White is a disgrace to Belgian Whites.

  14. el jefe Says:

    Bacon will never die. Bacon being used where it shouldn’t be will. Talk of anything else is heresy. It is from the special magical animal.

  15. detroitjeff Says:

    Check the “bacon-ball”. A Chicago delicacy that I found cozied up next to a bear claw in a box of donuts at a downtown shop. It’s basically a roll studded with crispy bacon chunks. I have a snapshot I would love to share.

  16. EdKing Says:

    Go deep-fry some HOG JOWL. It outdoes bacon on a grand scale. If you love bacon, you need to graduate. Reach a little higher. Move it on UP.

  17. Whitey McCracker Says:

    Too much water, not enough melon. Cantaloupe is the melon of the hour. Pastor is the new bacon, pork and pineapple. You can’t go wrong.
