A day without bacon is like a day without bacon.

And that is a good day to die.

It is a far, far better bacon I eat than I have ever eaten. It is a far, far better slab of bacon I go to than I have ever known.

The genius, wit, and spirit of a nation are discovered in its bacon.

Bacon makes dull men witty, but it keeps them poor (and fat, too).

Acorns were good till bacon was found. But acorns cooked in bacon grease are a man's mistress.

A little bacon inclineth man's mind to atheism; but depth in bacon bringeth men's minds about to religion.

Hardly more thoughtful nor heartfelt eGullet contributions have ever been wrought than those I find here. Just the topic title hitself is quite provocative ain't it.

Must add, this evening I used Niman Ranch no-nitrate, erm, nitrITE bacon (experimentally) with green beans, you know, a green beans with bacon and onion trip and WOW was that good bacon.

Bacon is as bacon does, uh huh.
