("Mary! He's doing it again! He's posting bacon links!")

Yessireebob, the Baconpunk wave is cresting and I'm about to surf that sucker headlong into the metaphorical porkcore pilings.
I mean, check out this MetaFilter link and discussion: Just Call 'Em Slabs of Joy. And reddit now has a designated aggregator entitled Bacon--Nuff' Said. Plus there's the For the Love of Bacon Archives. and the Battle of the Bacon Dogs.
Bacon is the new Absinthe and I couldn't be happier.
On the other hand, nothing, absolutely nothing, could have prepared me for The Bacon Loincloth ("Like the Romans, but with bacon. Hamcore!").
It's a weird and wonderful world.
