International Bacon Day!
"Bacon Day is held on the Saturday before Labor Day US ... This year that is the 5th of September. Last year Bacon Day was celebrated in the US, Australia, Canada, South Africa, Switzerland, and the UK ... Bacon Day is a day of Bacon ... think Iron Chef but all day and the secret ingredient is Bacon."
via Bacon Today [previously], your go-to guide for all things bacon and bacon-related , up to but not including the artery-unclogging services you will need afterward.)

...yes, yes, but why place it so far away from International Pancake Day?

Heh. And I just picked up a massive amount of peameal bacon this week. I think I know what's for breakfast Saturday ...

If you got me a bacon bra, it's over.

Bacon has jumped the shark.

Mmm... shark bacon.

Perhaps tomorrow will be Hypercolor shirt day? And then can we have soda fountain day? And digital watch day, and 640KB limit day....

I am so wearing my Hypercolor shirt tomorrow.

Oh man, I wish I still had my Hypercolor shirt. It was rad.

By strange coincidence, I had a GKB Manhattan just last night (bacon infused Knob Creek, maple syrup, orange bitters, brandied cherry as garnish). I see there is now an occasion to have another.

Bacon is just more proof that the internet can run *anything* into the ground.

On this one day of the year, do dogs know it's not bacon?

Oh good. My homemade bacon, tomato and basil infused vodka should be ready to strain and be made into delicious bloody marys by then. Cheers.

Every pork product deserves its own day: Sausage Link Day. Pork Shoulder Day. Sausage Pattie Day. Little Smokies Day. Surrey Sausage Day. Pork Tenderloin Day. Pork Chop Day. Italian Sausage Day. Virginia Ham Day. Hot Dog Day. Pulled Pork Day...

My husband sent me this when I linked him to the news of Bacon Day:

Remember, remember
The Fifth of September

The Day just for Bacon
And eatin' smoked pig til we dies.

Truly, bacon is too delicious and beautiful a thing to have ever been reduced to something so base as an internet fad.

We celebrated Bacon Day Eve...BLTs for dinner last night. mmmmmmmmm

I'm slowly coming out of an extended stomach-bug illness which has made me unable to eat practically anything in the last 5 days. I am slowly reintroducing my body to the idea of solid food now.

5th of September, eh? I can do this. (Even though Spanish bacon tends to not be as awesome as one might think.)

Dear Internet,

Please shut up about bacon already.

Fella in the booth next to me at the last comics convention I was at said he had embarked upon and eventually abandoned a campaign to make astronauts the next internet fad. ninjas, pirates, zombies, astronauts. I thought it was a noble endeavor and purchased one of the products he'd created in pursuit of that aim, sad that I would probably never see realultimateastronaut.com unless he or I sat down and put such a site together.

Ninjas, pirates & zombies are all played out. Bacon's on the decline. LOLcats have been over ever since our aunts started forwarding icanhascheezburger images to us. What's on the rise right now? Any savvy memespotters have any guesses as to which fads we'll be sick of the day after tomorrow?

mrnutty, comments like that are the equivalent of walking across a room to interrupt a conversation just to tell the people that what they are discussing is not interesting to you.

Just stay on the other side of the room and let us keep talking about stuff that interests us and realise that not everything is about you or made for your entertainment. Except bacon. Which IS made for you entertainment.

ps- So are zombies

Everyone knows this holiday was just created by lobbyists from the bacon-industrial complex.

Oh, and classic bacon-related 1970s T-shirt design found in the back pages of magazines and comic books

update: i made the bacon, and some scrambled eggs. it was delicious.

Oh, you crazy kids! You thought you had it all wrapped up, with regards to ironic bacon-fetish humor. Wellsir, The State already beat you to it (sorry for the cruddy YT sync) all the way back ca. 1995.

Now kindly get your bacon off of my lawn.

Bacon has become the most boring internet subject of all time.
posted by caddis at 12:02 AM on September 4, 2009


...I think boredom with bacon has just surpassed bacon itself as the most boring internet subject of all time. I'll always like bacon better.

Joy? I have been nice t' yah, but now, I'm comin' to th' edge.

I guess I'm late to the party, but I had to point out:
the Meatini would be a perfect way to celebrate international bacon day.
