People always ask us why we have a daily news publication dedicated to bacon. Yes faithful readers, there are those folks among us that just don’t understand the importance of this glorious meat. We generally point them first to our Why Bacon page and if they still don’t get it then we try with all our might to resist the urge to slap them upside the head with a 1 lb. pack of applewood smoked.
With the growing popularity of Bacon Today we now have alternative options of informing the BT-unawares (other than resorting to pork-laden violence). We’ve got publicity! Here’s just a few of the mentions we’ve recieved this past week.
- We were interviewed for a story published in the Sunday, February 15 edition of the Toronto Star newspaper
- Our own creation and internet sensation “Turbaconducken” was featured on ABC TV in Australia on the game show Spicks & Specs
- Speaking of Turbaconducken, it appears that we’ve officially entered the hallowed halls of pop culture as conservative columnist and Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin used our little creation as a metaphor for the U.S. government’s economic stimulus package. In her article “The Tiny Trillion-Dollar Turbaconducken You Don’t Care About” she stated:
“If the stimulus plan were a Thanksgiving dinner entree, it would be a Turbaconducken — the heart attack-inducing dish of roasted chicken stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey, all wrapped in endless slabs of bacon.”
Oh, and as of this writing there are over 40,000 references on Google to “trillion-dollar turbaconducken”. How cool is that?
Thanks to all the loyal readers of Bacon Today. Its you folks that make this all worth while. Well, you & bacon.
