Title: You've been like Bacon...
Post by: c-lando on January 21, 2008, 02:29:08 PM
Jim Gaffigan was on Letterman Friday and he did his entire stand-up routine about bacon. I found out afterward that he has performed the same bit on Conan. Regardless, when something is this good, it should be repeated anywhere, everywhere, & all the time.

I wanted to post the transcript here as the whole thing made me think of at leat 3-4 boarders (including myself)! :)

"I just had some bacon. Anybody ever had bacon before? It's good. Oh, my greasy lover, bacon. It's the best!

You wanna know how good bacon is? To improve other food, they wrap it in bacon. If it weren't for bacon, we wouldn't even know what a water chestnut is. "Thank you bacon. Sincerely, Water Chestnut III."

And bits of bacon, bits of bacon are like the fairy dust of the food community. "You don't want this baked potato? Brrring! Now it's your favorite part of the meal. Not interested in the salad? Bibbity bobbity BACON. I just turned it into an entree."

But once you put bacon in a salad, it's no longer a salad. It just becomes a game of 'find the bacon in the lettuce'. It's like you're panning for gold. Eureka!

There is something dishonest though about putting bacon in a salad - it's kind of like smoking while you jog. "I want the BLT, but I'll just get a salad with bacon and tomato. Can you put it between two pieces of toast and stick a toothpick through it? That'd be great..."

It's amazing the shrinkage that occurs with bacon. You start with a pound, you end up with a bookmark.

I never feel like I get enough bacon, at breakfast it's like they're rationing it. "Here's your two strips of bacon." "I want more, more bacon!"

Whenever I'm at a brunch buffet and they have that big metal tray filled with the 4000 pieces of bacon, I always think, "If I was here by myself...I would eat only bacon. I would steal this tray, go lay down, and eat bacon all day."

But you can't eat bacon all day, cause it's horrible for you. You know bacon's bad when a healthier choice is a donut. And we've known bacon is bad for thousands of years. It's literally a restriction on entering certain religious. "Our rules: No Killing, No Cheating on Your Wife, No Bacon." "Oooh, what was that last one?" "No Bacon." "Aaah, I'm in the wrong line."

"How many bacon jokes is he gonna do? It's like, come on!"

But bacon is that good. I bet if you put bits of bacon on a strip of bacon, you could travel back in time. It's like a tasty vortex.

And fat back, supposedly fat back is like bacon on steroids, you know. I've never tried fat back, probably because it's called 'fat back'. I don't know what creeps me out more - fat or back. Why don't they just throw in hairy while they're at it? "That's some good hairy fat back. That reminds me, your mother called."

"That's gotta be the end of the bacon jokes..."

I even like the name Bacon. You can't tell me the success of Kevin Bacon isn't somehow tied to his name. You're not going out to see a Kevin Hot Dog movie. "Who's in this movie?" "Kevin Bacon." "Sounds good."

Thank you very much. You've been like bacon.

Bibbity bobbity BACON."
Totally my new favorite saying! :)

I didn't realize that this transcript doesn't have the bit about a BLT being like buying a pack of gum to distract the cashier when you're buying a Playboy. (Gum = Lettuce & Tomato and Bacon = p0rn!) HA!

Man, I was wheezing by the time this thing was over. I think The Greg was trying to decide if he was going to have to pull some EMT manuevers on me just in case I totally stroked out from the bacon jokes.

My top 5 favorite foods (in no particular order after bacon):
1. BACON
2. Popcorn
3. Mangoes
4. Shrimp
5. All other food

I've always been thrilled by the bacon and shrimp combo and shrimp and mango can be a treat. But, I never thought about a bacon & popcorn combo.

A thousand times, I thank you.

Instead of your favorite healthy oil such as canola or what have you, use the bacon grease to pop the corn. It's really good if it has some of the tiny little burnt pieces, 'scrapins' I like to call them.
You have to heat the grease a lot slower than you would the oil or you'll burn it and create a lot of smoke..or worse. But I've never had a flare up in all of the artery clogging years I've been doing it.
After it's popped just sprinkle in a little sugar instead of salt. Just a pinch.

I had you, even if it does sound so unhealthy that I couldn't imagine doing it, until the sugar part.  Bacon grease and sugar don't sound like a good combo to me.

I am still very upset that I can't see Mr. Gaffigan when he is in town in September! SNARF. To make matters worse, I received a notice that a second show has been added. But, it's the same night as the 1st show. So, no luck for me in getting to see him live.

However, I felt mildly less disappointed when I saw this:

In my (somewhat limited by WebSense) googling, I found this quote:
Quote
"Aldrig kommer att ge dig upp" is Swedish for "Never gonna give you up"
Is this some kind of Think Geek Rick roll?

I admit, I still don't understand the whole Rick roll phenomenon, since I almost never click on YouTube links anyway.

I was at Vosges Haut Chocolat the other week and they were giving out bacon toffee samples.

It was a little disappointing to tell the truth.  The bacon was entombed within a layer of hard toffee like Han Solo in carbonite.  That hard toffee was then dipped into chocolate to provide yet another outer layer, like um... Han Solo in carbonite dipped in chocolate?

Trying to just chew it proved to be a frustrating experience as the bacon just sort of shredded and mushed and disappeared.  So what you did was basically just let the chocolate melt in your mouth, then sucked on the toffee until that disintegrated, and then you were left with a small square of dried, somewhat stale (but still tasty) bacon as a bit of a bonus.

The experience was akin to finding out that they were marketing Bacon Cracker Jack, and getting all excited.  Only instead of bacon surrounded by hard caramel to go along with the peanuts and popcorn, it was just regular Cracker Jack and then after eating your way through the entire box, you find the prize at the end is a tiny strip of bacon.  Not exactly unwelcome, but still a bit of a letdown. 

I feel like a lot of synergistic possibility was left at the table.

Someone ran the Pig yesterday wearing a bacon costume. Not sure if she did the half or full but major props to her, the shark guy and anyone else running in the heat wearing a costume.

I heard about someone wearing a Wonder Women costume, but not the bacon girl. Major props x2!

Bacon Vodka (http://uncrate.com/stuff/bakon-vodka/)
No, that's not a typo. Bakon Vodka ($30) is a new premium-quality potato vodka infused with a savory bacon flavor. Distilled from Idaho potatoes and possessing a perfect hint of peppery bacon flavor. Great in a bloody mary, good when paired with scotch, not so hot in a white russian unless you like the way they taste on the way back up but what we really, really want is a recipe for a bacon cheeseburger.

Recommended to go with Glazed Donut Vodka (http://uncrate.com/stuff/glazed-donut-vodka/) to make a martini. ;)

Yes, please, and thank you.

My first thought was that Cadbury had released a new flavour for their Roses (http://www.bmstores.co.uk/images/hpcProductImage/imgFull/181364-Cadbury-Roses-68g-2.jpg), so I thought maybe they could have the purple one with, like, bacon in the middle instead of a hazelnut.

I had the Boss Hog from Dojo Gelato this weekend.  It was chocolate gelato with sea salt and bacon in it.  That is some yummy stuff!

Moving out of the apartment this weekend, it was discovered that for the past 4 years my roommate has had these  bacon flavored spices in the closet. It's incredible that they were in the closet and never used. It's incredible that he forgot they were there.

I think it's more amazing that those products even exist.

These were probably part of some kind of gift pack he got and forgot about.  My office may or may not have received these at some point in the past.

Well, the question remains - should I keep them? If you had them, how often would you use them?

I'd probably pitch the Baconnaise and keep all of the salts for popcorn, taters, etc.
