Is bacon better than sliced bread? Is it overrated? Is it good but there are many other foods that beat it?

Also, if you're wondering why I chose these 38, I didn't. I stole them from this list of a different topic:

I like bacon, but I think it's getting to the point of being over-hyped.

I like bacon a lot but yeah, it's gotten a lot of love over the last several years for whatever reason.

I clicked on a bunch of those foods being better than bacon. :yes:

When the waitress asks me if I'd rather have bacon or sausage links with my waffle I always get the links. :hail:

Bacon in a cheeseburger?
Hell yes.

No bacon available?
No big deal as it's still a cheeseburger and definitely worth my bite.

When you have more results (er, 'data'), you'll have to whittle this down to "Bacon vs The Magnificent 7".
I've never been a huge fan. I get enough salt and grease in my diet through other means. :D

My thought too!  Bacon on pizza.  Bacon cheeseburgers.   Mashed potatoes with bacon and cheese.  That's just a few of the obvious . . .

I picked 20 or so better than bacon...and that's a fairly conservative number for me.  Bacon = great, but still overrated.   Kind of like AFTK.

You've given me an idea for a Magnificent 7 thread.

Bacon is more like Caress of Steel. Like bacon, it's an early feast and it's gotten a lot of love in recent years, particularly on TRF. It's surely an enjoyable treat but there are many other treats that I like much more like roast pork and Moving Pictures.


Caress of Bacon

Side one
1. Bacon Day
2. I Think I'm Going Bacon
3. Baconside Park
4. The Baconmancer
  I. Into the Frying Pan
  II. Under the Oil
  III. Return of the Grease

Side two
5. The Bacon of Lamneth
  I. In the Stomach
  II. Dinings and Nibbles
  III. No one at the Table
  IV. Pan 'o Oil
  V. Bacon Plateau
  VI. The Bacon

Surely there has to be a bacon-themed concept album...other than this:

A bacon album can't stray one iota from the use of the word "bacon" in its songs.
The sections within a single song are more flexible however.
These are the rules as told by Prince Bacon-Tor.
