Oh, I do so love infographics, and this one is close to my heart. Bacon, the candy made of people swine, is probably one of my favourite things in the world, as it goes with anything and everything. However, for years it has been demonized as being Bad For You ™. Now, science (sweet science!) gives us reasons why it is, in fact Good For You ™. And so the internet rejoices!

Oh god, they’ve finally managed to combine bacon and Star Wars. Look how huge that thing is! It contains over forty pounds of bacon! The singularity is nigh! Everybody panic!
The Bacon AT-AT: ‘Star Wars’ And Pork, Together At Last [Huffington Post]
Sometimes in your life, you sit back and look at what you have wrought, and you feel good inside. I can only imagine how fucking awesome the person who made this felt afterwards. So pretty you’d almost want to not eat it.
Almost. I mean, c’mon, it’s bacon.
Today in bacon news, we present the story of Mike Nelson, formerly the second-favourite host of beloved late-night movie show Mystery Science Theater 3000, and his ridiculous mission for the month of February. In his own words:
…for the entire month of February, 2009, I, Michael J. Nelson will eat nothing but bacon. Nothing, my friends, but bacon.
Major Mike is a sick, sick man, but I approve of his cause. Let us read farther for his reasoning behind this mad quest…
Why? Because bacon is nature’s finest and most nourishing food. Also, because several doubters on the RiffTrax staff had the unmitigated gall to insult bacon by making the outrageous claim that, as good as it is, no one could eat very much of it and live. I can and will. Therefore I will spend the month proving it.
Bravo, good sir, bra-vo. There’s nothing quite like doing something just to prove to a bunch of assholes on the internet that it can be done. Seriously, it takes a certain combination of chutzpah and balls-out (or vulva-out if you prefer) stubborness to dedicate yourself to a single form of food. He goes on to say he will not be using condiments either, which is astounded, though he does reserve the right to drink it up. Really, who are we to deny such a request?
