  1. Oh, man! Somebody really needs to make a bacon Mohammed. I might just have to invest in a basket full of Tesco value bacon!

  2. Van Gogh wasn’t much of a meat eater. If one is to use food as a medium to replicate his work, perhaps his “Potato Eaters” or “Wheatfields” would be more appropriate.

  3. There is a cafe in Snook, TX, which is famous for chicken-fried bacon. I have not been there, but it is on my life list.

  4. While living in Pittsburgh some years ago, I noticed that the Kosher market we sometimes shopped at sold something called Baco-Bits, which were strictly Kosher, but supposedly tasted like those bacon crumbles used in salads.

    But how would an observant customer know?
