When something involves both bacon and pissing off Teh Won and his Klingon bride, how can I say no?
We give you the KFC Double Down, two slabs of fried chicken and melted cheese all squeezed around a sacred centerpiece — two pieces of bacon. The breadless sandwich that some are calling “angina on a plate” debuts at KFC restaurants on Monday. If customers order the Original Recipe variety, their Double Down will pack 540 calories, 32 grams of fat and 1,380 milligrams of sodium, according to KFC.
This is will not make Michelle Obama very happy.
Of course, the timing of KFC’s guilty pleasure is giving chest pains and meat sweats to nutritionists. As we’re simultaneously advised and chided how and what to eat to protect our arteries, the Double Down stares down anti-obesity campaigners like the First Lady — and does it with a bold, greasy smirk.
Dinner tomorrow? Oh, I think so.

Via Weasel Zippers' baconblogging we find out that Canadians are real Morons.
The people of Canada sure love their bacon. In a recent survey..., 43% of the respondents said they would rather have bacon than sex.
I also have to wonder if Moron Pundit has a few wives in Canada
Nearly one in four of respondents (23%) wondered if ‘my partner loves bacon more than me’ more...

Just you wait. I guarantee that some congresscritter is going to throw a fit about this study and insist that we outlaw bacon. If that doesn't make us all fight back, then, my friends - nothing will.
Scientists have finally confirmed what the rest of us have suspected for years: Bacon, cheesecake, and other delicious yet fattening foods may be addictive.
A new study in rats suggests that high-fat, high-calorie foods affect the brain in much the same way as cocaine and heroin. When rats consume these foods in great enough quantities, it leads to compulsive eating habits that resemble drug addiction, the study found.
Doing drugs such as cocaine and eating too much junk food both gradually overload the so-called pleasure centers in the brain, according to Paul J. Kenny, Ph.D., an associate professor of molecular therapeutics at the Scripps Research Institute, in Jupiter, Florida. Eventually the pleasure centers "crash," and achieving the same pleasure--or even just feeling normal--requires increasing amounts of the drug or food, says Kenny, the lead author of the study.
Imagine it - illicit bacon and cheesecake trade, in the seedy dark alleys, late at night. The DEA coming after you for owning Twinkies. You can see it happening. Admit it.

Seems to be the same principle behind the George Foreman grill, but looks like it works pretty well. And who am I to contradict Alton Brown, king of the food geeks?

Love it love it love it, except the avocado. I feel about guacamole the way Queen Alex feels about spidery clowns.

Mystery solved, that's probably why wolves decided to "come to the fire" and become man's best friend thousands of years ago.
Bacon. Is there nothing it can't do?

I had to go to Instapundit to find out it's National Bacon Day.
Isn't there someone here in charge of notifying us of stuff like that?
(I'm looking at you Mr. Chocoloate Covered Bacon MP)
Now I have to hope the area supermarkets aren't out of bacon on this important holiday.
It's like buying a turkey Thanksgiving morning.

I hear the value meal comes with a gallon of Jolt cola and a desert made of a Snickers deep fried between two Twinkies.
