It's OK To NOT

It's OK To NOT

By Rocco Loosbrock

Hey fellow Baconistas, " everything is going to be just fine!

There`s absolutely no need to feel such overwhelming and intense pressure to assertively come down on a definitive Ye or Nay, " Pro or Con " side of current Hell-A-Bulloo " about this guy online who is now calling himself The Bacon Man!

While I think it`s generally good to contemplatively mull things over and do whatever it takes to make some wise, rational, intelligent and well educated decisions about: your (1) chosen career path, (2) personal religion / philosophy / cosmology / belief system, (3) your life-long Spouse(s) and (4) your favorite type of bacon,.... when it comes to Bacon Man, " I think we all should just take a swill pill " and chill out a bit.

If I had $4.37 " for every question I`ve gotten in the past 10 days asking me what I think of Bacon Man, I`d actually have enough money to go out and buy myself something that cost exactly $157.32. "

I mean, ... I mean ..., I mean, ... this whole Bacon Man phenom " or as some like to call it, Bacon Man-ia " is clearly just some nice people having some artistic fun with a little creative expression about their deep love for Bacon. That seems logical and innocent enough.

Now I personally don`t want to take my time away from eating REAL bacon to sit around watching short films about this big bold & brazen, bountifully bearded bacon buddy, but I absolutely wish him no ill, smilingly salute him and appreciate the fact that you really have to LOVE bacon to spend your time doing that kind of thing.

My only problem with the project is, why always give the bacon to the dogs, why not some hungry family sitting in the park with absolutely NO BACON at all, or a tail-gating, body painted football fan watching his friends eat bacon in the parking lot before the big game and he has absolutely NO BACON at all?

Why does the bacon always go to the dogs and not to the Hogs?

Art is meant to be experienced and either enjoyed or not. What`s right ... rock or country, classical or jazz, comedies or action flix, Family Guy or Stephen Colbert, Robot Chicken or Bacon Man?

Signing Off and Pigging Out,
