While I labor ingloriously to ignite a second Bacon’s Rebellion here in Virginia, a Bacon Revolution has taken the United States by storm. The United States has developed a craving for bacon that cannot be satiated. We now have bacon ice cream, bacon-infused whiskey, bacon soap and, my personal favorite, served at a birthday party over the weekend: Tater Tots wrapped in cheese and bacon. Yummmm. Oh, my heart, I think my arteries just clogged up. I don’t care, give me more baaaacon!
