Bacon Drunk in 2012, the Full Review. Plus, Amazingly, Bacon.
Fried bacon upon other fried things. And bacon.

The year 2012 very well may go down as the year bacon got knighted. Or killed. Not sure which. Regardless, for better or worse, America had a clamorous affair with bacon this year. No longer a breakfast side item, bacon is now a main course, also a condiment, vodka, a scarf, an essence, a destination location, a mascot for gluttony. Shame begets shame. Nothing is safe from bacon. Let bacon ring. One nation under bacon, with liberty and bacon for all and may we forever celebrate every crackling pop of the food that fries in its own fat.

So, put on some sweatpants and tilt the recliner all the way back and rehash with us our favorite bacon dispatches of the year.
