In an interview with a fashion industry web site, Kate Moss said, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” Said the rest of the world: Bacon! – Seth Myers
Bacon has long been a favourite in households across Canada; the smoky aroma of sizzling bacon is a welcome addition to any – and every – morning. But our love for bacon is more than just skillet deep; asked to choose between bacon and sex, a whopping 43% of Canadians chose bacon. Men are particularly enamoured with bacon; according to the same survey (commissioned by Maple Leaf Foods), almost 18% said they simply can’t survive without it. Seriously. (Source: Angus Reid)
What is it about bacon that is so darn life changing? Is it the saltiness of the meat? Or the irresistible combination of crispy and chewy? Why is bacon considered to be a staple for Canadians, ranking up there with maple syrup, double doubles and doughnuts? Regardless, bacon has played an important role in our culture and lives, bringing us together through the good times (the new Canadian Bacon Cookhouse in Halifax) and bad (the worldwide bacon shortage forecasted in 2012).

Sadly I think that bacon would simply incinerate if close enough to a nuclear explosion… and if you’re downwind, but outside of the blast zone it would just be radiated (and thus poisonous)… but if you’re upwind and outside of the blast zone, then your bacon would be just fine! (Though, i’d still consume it with a side of KI03 lol).
Although I do like bacon (in smallish doses) I won’t be twitterpating. Hope everyone has fun !
I just wanted to write that the Twitter Party was a lot of fun last night and thank you for moderating the event!
I would have the entire family over for Sunday Bacon Brunch and I vowed this year I wouldn’t be hosting anymore large family events
