I grew up in a solidly middle class, mostly Jewish neighborhood making this bacon business all the more bizarre. Here’s another bit of bacon from a former classmate. This one, is in the Smithsonian. Not bad for a nice boy from Rogers Park.

Was there something in the water?

This is so wrong it’s right.

And while it doesn’t get more low-tech than matzo, what with hailing from the days of Moses and Pharoh but in the spirit of the holiday, why is this post different from all other posts?

Thanks to the Association for Women Journalists and their listserv for the heads up……

Or maybe just a long weekend.

This is Bacon Camp. It’s a blog but also, an actual event Where folks swap recipes and tales of bacon love. People have been sending me all sorts of bacon links and it’s great to see how much we share the a fascination for all things bacon. Thanks to Nick Brown for this.

I just wish I had come up with the Bacone recipe. That pig trophy is sweet.

It’s been a week of more bacon than tech, but there seems to something happening, sociologically speaking. I can’t turn around without a new bacon bit, pun intended. Yesterday, the most intellectual person I know sent an email that when opened turned my 24-inch monitor into an enormous perfectly crisped piece of bacon.

It’s not enough to just enjoy the bacon blitz. Oh no, there must be some kind of deep meaning to it. Is winter and our craving for fatty foods? The economic doom and gloom that has us yearning for simpler times when food like bacon wasn’t vilified? A craving for comfort foods? A combination of all these things, I suspect.

So what’s the technological equivalent of bacon? The TV? Not quite so warm and fuzzy as a piece of bacon. Video games seem to be recession proof, sales are actually up and game software is outselling prerecorded DVDs and Blu-ray discs combined. Game nights and Wii parties are popular, what with no one having any money to go out. No word yet if bacon is being served…..
