Bacon Is Best Currency At Burning Man!

Bacon Is Best Currency At Burning Man!

By Rocco Loosbrock


We`ve all heard some of the wild, wonderful and wacky tales coming out of the annual Burning Man " celebration. Some of the stories are psychological, philosophical or political in nature while others are artistic, some silly, some scary, some freaky but most all of them are pretty trippy " to say the very least! 


Our very good bacon buddies over at the Royal Bacon Society snagged this story and once I read it, I just knew I had to pass it on to all of you Bacon Freaks out there as quickly as humanly possible!

Do I smell bacon?


I`ve always thought that bacon was a highly valuable commodity. My entire life I`ve been hearing about pork belly futures, and honestly, nothing works better as a bribe to get people out of bed. So I wasn`t too surprised to learn that even at a hippiefest like Burning Man, bacon holds it value like gold.


According to this anecdotal tale from Noelle Carter in the LA Times blogs section, bacon is king if you find yourself in a bartering situation. And speaking of the Times, they`ve been on a serious bacon high lately. The Daily Dish has been hooking up one article after another with tons of great bacon recipes. In fact, Noelle is currently in the process of compiling a list of 1,001 things to do with bacon. Ambitious! I like it! In addition to her regular updates, you can find lots of handy bacon ideas in the comments section of her articles.
