Bacon the movie

e83397f4d9544a84f9b9fb007039d626It is time to have little fun at the expense of Political correctness gone mad. Oxford University Press want to ban words that refer to PIGS and in America a business was bullied into taking down a sign that contained the word BACON.

Your Politically incorrect mission ( should you choose to accept it ) is to replace one word in a Movie title with the word BACON.

When an institution sets out to ban something, more often than not the thing they choose to ban simply reflects back on that institution’s way of thinking.

So what does it tell us about the Oxford University Press that they are banning authors from using words that refer to pigs?

Yes, you read that correctly. Oxford UP is prohibiting authors from using the words pig, pork, sausage, or other pig-related words because they are afraid of offending Jewish or Muslim readers who consider pigs and pork to be off-limits for religious reasons.

Bacon-Muslims-1024x536

One could imagine that the scent and sound of crisp bacon waffling through Winooski Vermont, would perhaps send most Muslims into overdrive, but a sign with the word “Bacon”, to be precise “Yield Sneakers Bacon” apparently outraged a Muslim woman who took to an online community forum to complain about the sign.

Another from the science wasn’t really settled after all files

For years we have been told the science is settled…in climate change. In every other scientific discipline the science is constantly changing. But for climate change we are told the science is settled.

it is also ironic because the warmists who insist that also refuse to accept other science out there like genetic modification, despite that being settled too.

Another area where we are constantly told the science is settled and we should listen to people, especially if they are trying to ban something or prevent us from using it because they know best is in the food industry.

For years we have been told that salt is bad for us (it isn’t, doctors use saline solution after all), butter is bad, eggs are bad, sugar is bad…everything is bad for us and must be controlled, managed and more importantly taxed.

Except it was all wrong…the science wasn’t settled.

For decades they have been blacklisted as foods to avoid, the cause of deadly thickening of the arteries, heart disease and strokes.

But the science which warned us off eating eggs – along with other high-cholesterol foods such as butter, shellfish, bacon and liver – could have been flawed, a key report in the US has found.

Foods high in cholesterol have been branded a danger to human health since the 1970s – a warning that has long divided the medical establishment.    Read more »

We can’t talk about politics but we can talk about Meat

There is nothing better than meat…other than meat wrapped in bacon…because bacon.

Because Bacon

werw

Bacon has moved one step closer to being the only thing anyone needs to survive. A Minnesota-based madman-slash-genius just took a diesel-powered bike and, with some backing from his bacon-loving friends at Hormel, now has a fully functioning, bacon-powered cafe racer. Yes, the exhaust smells like bacon.

Oh my…

On the one hand:  this is so cool.  On the other hand… what a waste of good bacon!   Read more »

Bacon and eggs lead to Alzheimers. What’s the point to living?

The Daily Mail puts the boot in

Cutting back on fry ups could cut your risk of dementia, according to new research.

A ‘compelling’ study has linked compounds found in fried meat and eggs with one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease.

Bacon is particularly problematic and the suspect chemicals are also found in many cakes, biscuits and pastries.

Bacon As Currency

Driving across America in a non-gay ute and using bacon as currency…awesome:

Josh Sankey needs your help.

In a clever marketing move by Oscar Mayer, they have put him in a trailer, filled it with piles and piles of bacon and are seeing if he can make it coast-to-coast only using their bacon as currency.

No coins, no bologna. Just bacon.

“I need your help. I’m driving from NY to LA with no cash and no cards—just a trailer full of Butcher Thick Cut Bacon to barter with you for everything I need,” Josh explains.

On their website, you can propose a barter, see what he needs, and follow his antics on TwitterFacebook andInstagram.

Burger King is rolling out a bacon sundae…plus a whole heap of other bacon treats…fingers crossed they come here:

It seems that Burger King must have taken a very long position on pork futures, because they’ve rolled out a temporary Memphis Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich, Carolina BBQ Whopper, Texas BBQ Whopper and a bacon sundae:

The AP reports that BK will launch the treat — which has fudge, caramel, crumbled bacon and a full piece of bacon — later this week, along with other limited time items.

It has 510 calories, 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar, but we’re guessing that these numbers won’t discourage the bacon-curious from giving it a try.
