Has The Internet’s Obsession With Bacon Gone Too Far?

It’s an “unholy union”!

The Guardian thinks you just need to stop, okay? Just stop. This is what they have to say to you:

Is anyone else feeling queasy about the bacon-in-everything thing? I’ll tell you what pushed me over the cured pork edge: the recently opened “meat bar” at Shaka Zulu in London, which serves a range of carnivorous cocktails including Bloody Bacons. These alcoholic fry-ups in a glass feature bacon vodka and crispy smoked bacon. And a skewer of soft cheese on the side.

It’s just the latest in a run of worrying bacon news. The US is braced for its first bacon reality TV show. And Burger King recently launched a bacon sundae – vanilla ice cream slathered in fudge sauce and topped with lardons. Oliver Thring might enjoy the latter as an amusing pudding course to a hot dog stuffed crust pizza but for my money bacon mania is spinning out of control.

Here is where to buy those things and how much they cost:
Bloody Bacon - served at Shaka Zulu, a 24 hour mature Bloody Mary mix, bacon vodka served with celery, crispy smoked bacon, a skewer of soft cheese and tomato. $24.

Burger King Bacon Sundae - Sweet and savory made with cool, creamy and velvety vanilla soft serve, chocolate fudge and smooth caramel, made to order with our new thick hardwood smoked bacon. Limited Time Only. $2.49

I am pretty sure this entire Guardian article is a secret advertisement for Shaka Zulu and Burger King. Well played, Shaka Zulu and Burger King

    There is no such thing as too much bacon.

    Finally, people besides me are realizing that this bacon thing has gone on long enough. Yes, there is in fact such a thing as too much bacon, and I’m not talking about just eating too much of it. There’s bacon air freshener, bacon bandaids, plush bacon, bacon dresses, and I’m pretty sure there’s even bacon wallpaper. ENOUGH WITH THE GODDAMN BACON already.
