    Bacon has become the forum's highest standard of "all that is good".

    With that in mind, there is a feature that allows a reader to award a post "Bacon" for the highest appreciation instead of a standard "Like".

    Of course, there is also a "Dislike" option as well. Fortunately, that option doesn't take bacon away! :lol:

    Hmmm, so just what does bacon mean.....

    (Please kneel)

    Bacon means that all is right with the world.
    Bacon means the sun will continue to rise in the east.
    Bacon means your woman will always be faithful.
    Bacon means the music you hear will sound better than ever.
    Bacon means your soul will be cleansed (All hail Bacon)
    Bacon means your sandwich is no longer just a sandwich. It is the lunch of the Gods.
    Bacon means your truck will start on a cold winters night with a full tank of gas.
    Bacon sounds like children laughing.
    Bacon feels like soft fur.
    Bacon triumphs over all.
    The nectar of bacon is sweeter than honey.
    Bacon means the moon with shine brighter than ever.
    Bacon is the way, the truth, and the light
    Bacon simply is bacon.

    All may now rise and continue your day!

    It's part and parcel of your very soul:
    Ode to bacon and how I love thee,

    For without you and your salty goodness,

    Your meaty charms,

    I’d be quite hungry.

    Oh bacon,

    how wonderful you make the world.

    You’re the one food that improves everything it touches,

    Other than cheese or peanut butter of course.

    Just one slice of you,

    Or maybe two or three,

    And a mediocre sandwich becomes divine,

    A dull salad turns tasty.

    And luckily for me,

    Bacon can be eaten anytime of day,

    In anyway, with any dish,

    It’s a versatile crunchy meat,

    A delicious treat.

    Bacon is one of the 3 perfect things in life. Kate Beckinsale with a plate of bacon in one hand, and the other holding a bottle of Booker bourbon.

    Correction, one of 4 things. I would see Terry in the rear view mirror tied up as Kate, I, Bacon, and bourbon drive off :evil4:

    That was an ode written by Miranda Koerner . The rest of it is:

    There’s eggs and bacon,
    With pancakes and hash browns,
    Or waffles and omelets,
    Or grits and fruit, for those watching their figure.

    Bacon is very diet friendly, you know.
    It’s true.
    Would I ever lie to you?

    Then there’s bacon for lunch,
    On a club or turkey sandwich,
    A pizza or panini,
    In pasta or in a salad,

    It’s particuarly good with cheese.
    Or on a burger, but that’s another ode,
    For another day.


    Now bacon for dinner,
    Is quite a spectacular thing.
    There’s bacon wrapped chicken and steak,

    Bacon burgers and bacon wrapped hunks o’ beast,
    bacon wrapped fish, bacon pizza, pasta, pie and more–
    Why, any dinner at all could be better with bacon it seems,
    Try it, and I promise you’ll see what I mean.

    Even picky eaters,
    Will happily eat veggies,
    With a few slices of bacon,
    that make it extra tasty.

    Crunchy and crisp,
    Soft and chewy,
    Hot and salty,
    Warm and greasy.

    No matter which way you cook it,
    Or how you eat it,
    On it’s own or with eggs and toast,
    On a sandwich or burger,

    Crumbled into pasta or pizza,
    Or veggies that could use a little omph,
    Bacon, oh dear bacon,
    you’re always the most.

    Ode to bacon,
    And how I love thee.
    For without you my life simply wouldn’t be,
    As wonderfully tasty.

    Y'know the pig has to be God's miracle creature. It eats garbage and produces bacon. What's better than that (apart from Kate Beckinsale)?

    And of course you have forgotten.... the standard dilemma ... bacon or not bacon.

    or....

    O Bacon, , thou Art like good health,
    I never knew till now How precious, till I lost thee.
    Now I see The beauty whole, because I yearn for thee.

    Hello from another newbie and thanks for asking 'the' question. I was at a loss too!
    Anyway, I'm enjoying the ride and I'm sure you will.
    Now all we need is eggs, tomatoes, black pudding, fried bread and sausages. But I don't know what any of them mean...:lol:

    I notice Wurger's attempting soliloquys now...this sure is a straaaaaaange place. :D
