There’s no doubt bacon is, hands down, the food of the gods (and likely swiped along with fire from the Greek pantheon by Prometheus). It’s salty, greasy, delicious—but not by any stretch of imagination geeky. Like LOLcats, this is another instance of accidentally grouping Internet and geeky trends together. Really, bacon is nothing more than a food-oriented non-sequitur with no actual basis in geek culture. But we promise we’ll recant that statement once someone manages to successfully produce a film or book launching the cured breakfast meat into the realm of epic fantasy.
