Bacon Meme of the Week

In case you were wondering, there is such a thing as International Bacon Day. Read about it here. The day brings together the diverse peoples of the world in reverent appreciation of God’s greatest gift to mankind.

Bacon fun fact: In the 12th century, a church in the English town of Great Dunmow created a tradition of gifting bacon to married men who could take an oath that he had not argued with his spouse for a year and a day.

Sadly, no man ever qualified. (OK, I made up that last part.)

Bacon sad fact: Native Americans never tasted bacon before the arrival of the Spanish in the New World. Hernando de Soto, known primarily for his explorations, brought 13 pigs with him to the Americas in 1539.
