For the record, I’d like to state that if it wasn’t snowing like the world is ending, my bacon loving behind would be in Des Moines, Iowa, for their third annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival.

On Saturday, February 27th, 600 lucky ticket holders will convene and pig out on 1000 pounds of bacon.  1000 pounds! That’s half a ton!  To give you an idea of how much bacon that is, let’s review what else weighs in at 1000 pounds:

  • a Siberian tiger
  • an 8-month old baby elephant
  • Michael Bay’s ego
  • A freak “Cinderella carriage sized” pumpkin in Kentucky (I am not making this up.  Read about it here!

Blue Ribon Bacon Festival 1

Last year, there were 13 different kinds of bacon to sample.  So far, one of the hottest items this year are the chocolate chunk bacon cookies being sold at Baby Boomer’s Cafe in the East Village.  (If they would like to send me some, I’ll be happy to try them!  I’ll need about 30 though for an accurate tasting.  I call it a “bacon’s dozen.”)

While I’m sad that I’m not attending (nor will I get to participate in the bacon-eating contest, which I’ve honestly been inadvertently training for my whole life), I am glad that 600 fellow bacon lovers will be getting together and masticating on tasty pork products.  Mmmm.  Masticating.

    I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours nowadays,
    yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is beautiful price sufficient for me. In my view,
    if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you
    did, the web might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    This is the right webpage for anyone who wants to find out about this topic.
    You realize so much its almost tough to argue with you
    (not that I really will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new
    spin on a topic that has been discussed for decades.
    Excellent stuff, just wonderful!
