I'm going to the Wisconsin State Fair today.
I'm going to eat CHOCOLATE COVERED BACON.
I'm going to take pictures.

We here at DPUD have always been ahead of the curve when it comes to bacon technology. We were doing it long before it became "trendy" to sing the praises of BACON through the tubes. It is my honor to present DRINKABLE BACON:
It's about that time of the week when plain old coffee just doesn't do it anymore.
Now, you need something that has your familiar jolt of caffeine, but a little unexpected zing is in order too.
And that's when we cue the bacon.
Say hello to the Maple Bacon Latte—a double espresso latte spiked with organic maple syrup and homemade bacon, sprinkled with Bac-Os—available now at Pirate Radio Café.

But going into bacon-blogging might be a post too far.
Eh, it's worth it;.
Behold, the baconbra
The best part? I know I'm usually hungry after sex.
The worst part? It'll make sex a lot less likely if you're hungry when you start.
The problem with the bra pictured? I would need at least a "D" cup to fill me up.

Roland Kopecky won the title of Bacon King after showing up at Saturday’s BaconCamp with an original dish called Loaded Bacon Pirogies.There's lots more bacony goodness at the link, including "Double-Decker Bacon Tacos." I'm pretty sure that's what they serve every night for dinner in Heaven.
And he has his unborn child to thank.
“The idea came from my pregnant girlfriend, who is craving all types of things,” he said. “And she came up with a loaded baked-potato pirogi.”
Turns out, Donna Tate’s cravings were spot on, as the potato-and-bacon-stuffed pirogi—whose dough, by the way, was made with bacon fat—stole the show at Columbus’s first ever BaconCamp. The event was held at Wild Goose Creative, a nonprofit arts group located at 2491 Summit St.
Oh, and the most surprising thing? The whole BaconCamp concept originated in...San Francisco. Didn't see that one coming.

The Machine Shed looks and feels like a shrine to the Midwest farmer, and the homage extends to the gift shop, where one corner of merchandise is all about bacon. In the inventory are bacon-flavored toothpicks, mints, gumballs and lollipops (dubbed “man bait”). They surround “bacon 24/7” T-shirts, bandages that look like bacon strips, bacon-scented air fresheners, wallets and lunchboxes with bacon patterns.
Still with me?
The Machine Shed loves bacon, so why wouldn’t Aaron include it in food-on-a-stick experiments? For one week, co-workers were taste testers for his inventive combinations.
“My belly just kind of aches when I think about that week,” says Erin Zylka, the dining room manager. Restaurant guests also sampled the finalists.
At the end, the chef had two winners.
One: fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on a stick. They will be dipped into pancake batter (“I add a little Sprite, to lighten it up,” Aaron says), then dunked into hot oil. “Like a jelly doughnut,” he explains, and $3 each.
Two: chocolate-covered bacon on a stick, served frozen, two strips for $3. The combo, although unprecedented at the Wisconsin State Fair, has shown up elsewhere. Aaron tried a dozen bacon-chocolate matches before deciding on milk chocolate over hardwood-smoked, honey-cured bacon.
“A ganache chocolate was too bitter,” he explains. “The real key is adding a little bit of sea salt to the chocolate at the end.”
“I love chocolate, and I love bacon, but I just can’t come to peace with bringing the two together,” admits Erin. I figured it would be the same with me, until taking my first nibble.
The tug between sugar and salt was attractive. No sign of greasiness. No chewiness. No brittleness, despite the freezing.
So another novelty is born, and 20,000 stick-impaled slices of chocolate-drenched bacon will make their way to West Allis this month.

From xkcd natch.
Also to make sure that we lead the way in both bacon related searches and that other search: Ass Fuck.

(Yes, I know it's not real bacon. Nor is it even a real meat product. I'm not asking you to eat the crap, I'm just asking you to answer a question about it.)

That bad boy is "The Smoker," which falls into the former category. It's described as:
A half pound ground ribeye, sirloin, prime rib patty topped with Havarti cheese, seven pieces of maple bacon, sauteed onions and smoked pepper mayo.Want like burning.

The Bacon Explosion is two pounds of bacon and two pounds of sausage. One pound of bacon is weaved around the sausage, and a pound of fried bacon in the center, with barbecue sauce over the whole things.I beg to differ with their serving estimates. The full one serves me.
The Bacon Explosion sells for $29.99 for a full or $17.99 for a half. The full one serves 12, the half serves 6.
Anyway, aside from this being about bacon wrapped with sausage wrapped with bacon (I drooled on my keyboard just writing that), this is also about the entrepreneurial spirit of America. FUCK YEAH!
There's a brief video at the link. If you'll excuse me, I've got a flight to Kansas City to book.

I think Capt. James T. Kirk would have to agree that this is all the awesome ever.

It's an age-old question, but I hope to answer it. Namely, which is the better burger for a buck when you’re on the way back from a night of drinking–the McDouble or the Wendy’s Junior Bacon Cheeseburger?
Well, the McDouble has some things going for it. It’s very filling. It has pickles, mustard and ketchup, along with that cheese-style stuff (it may actually be cheese, but I'm not entirely sure), giving you the McDonald’s taste you remember from when you were a kid and got a shitty toy along with your meal. Two patties of beef for a buck ain’t too bad. In fact, there are a lot of children in Africa who would envy you for having either a dollar or eating two patties of ground beef. Ever. FEEL GUILTY, FAT AMERICAN!!!!!
The Wendy’s burger tastes much more fresh. You can tell that the
patty is freshly seasoned with a little bit of salt. There’s some
lettuce and tomato, which are okay (if you're the kind of homo who likes salad), and the main condiment is a sort of
thin mayo. There's some cheese, which isn't any more or less flavorful than what McDonald's offers. Then, there’s the BACON!!! That’s right…you get a
cheeseburger that includes BACON!!!!! for a buck. Think about that–you
can get a cheeseburger that includes BACON!!!!! for less than the cost
of, well, anything these days. Until we end up with Weimar Republic-style inflation, that is.
Advantage: Wendy’s Junior Bacon Cheeseburger. I'd suggest hoarding them.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go back to rocking in the corner and hiding from the Spendulus Clowns.
