Widespread Baco-Mania is Key To Latest Top Ten Bacon Rankings.

By Rocco Loosbrock

Well, for those of you who have been vacationing somewhere outside of the Earth`s atmosphere, or perhaps under a rock or in a cave somewhere far removed from all pop culture and mass media, then you may not have yet heard of the raging trend that is sweeping society, known as Baco-Mania! "

As the two elements of the term clearly denote, Baco-Mania " is basically an obsessively maniacal infatuation with what is quite obviously, hands down, the most sought out item located around the globe at this time, namely "Bacon.

Evidence of this fascinating fad can quite literally be found spattered all throughout our modern day culture, from our hippest videos and coolest music to practically any and all television and radio commercials involving food and right into the very print of most menu`s of practically every eatery located on the planet, from pretty much all of the fast food " joints right up to the most elegant, posh, trendy gourmet restaurants.

What`s most fascinating about this MOVEMENT (something this big and long lasting this long can no longer sensibly be referred to as a trend) is the fact that so many of the fast food and corporately franchised restaurants are scoring BIG POINTS and MAJOR BUCKS by advertising their seemingly endless list of new and instantly popular rood items featuring everybody`s favorite Meat Candy " " BACON!

What`s even more fascinating, is how effectively the franchised eateries and fast food joints have turned their clear alliance with all the Bacon Freaks and Baconistas " out there, who are suddenly, for the first time ever, actually listing some fast food joints and specific restaurants in the list of Top Ten Bacons " this month.

Actually even more restaurants made it onto the list, but clearly only those with chains located all around the country, had the National Exposure to make it up into the elite Top Ten Bacon status. 

What does this new turn of events tell us about ourselves?
