    could be marginally worse unless you eat bacon and smoke:

    or you could just be more philosophical about it:

    Times do change and some of us change with them:×0/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc():format(webp)/blackpepperbaconcloseupsizzle-1-3784px-a8ac596217a14e2ba47f47877f49d362.jpeg

    AND it could be a win-win for RoVa agriculture:

    “Prime Roots is a California-based company that has come up with a convincing alternative. Its faux meat products are made from koji, a fungus that’s a superstar in Japanese cuisine but has yet to become familiar in the United States.

    The fungi are grown in fermentation vats, where they develop long fibrous strands. These are strained out of their growing liquid, and plant-based fats and flavors are added in to make the final product. Company founder Kim Le told Fast Company in 2020: “The fibers are similar to chicken breast fibers in terms of their texture and what they look like.”

    Koji stands out for its rich umami flavor. After all, it’s the same ingredient, Aspergillus oryzae, that’s used to make miso, soy sauce, and sake. High-level chefs value it for the complex taste and tenderness it adds to many dishes, with Noma owner René Redzepi describing it as “indistinguishable from magic.” When used for a faux meat substitute or seafood product, koji imparts a similarly deep and complex flavor.”

    1. Haha, Larry, I’ll let you eat the fungus. That’ll leave more bacon for me!

    Yeah, but who cares? It’s the last 9 minutes and those are really crappy anyway.

    My mother had five siblings. Her father died at age 35 of a massive coronary. She and four of her siblings succumbed to the same but at later ages, mostly early 80’s. But one brother who owns a large dairy farm (1000 plus cows) and has eaten, bacon, eggs and butter everyday is still alive and kicking at 93. No heart problems at all. Plays golf all winter in Florida and drives a tractor in upstate New York all summer. Is it all in the genes???

    1. No, it’s not the genes. Your brother is living proof that bacon is good for you.
