It’s entirely my fault: I taped bacon to my cat a couple of years ago, thus apparently signaling to the whole of the Internet that what I really wanted to be was the guy to whom everything related to bacon was forwarded to. Indeed, there has emerged a “Scalzi’s Law,” which is a consonant variation of Godwin’s Law, and it goes as such:
Any conversation on the internet will eventually include bacon in some way. And then be forwarded immediately to John Scalzi.
Since it appears that “Scalzi’s Law” is indeed followed religiously by various and sundry, and I am daily inundated with e-mail and links about bacon, I’ve decided that what really needs to happen is a public repository of links to all things bacon — so that a) people passionately interested in bacon can find all the links they desire, and b) that people have something to check to see whether or not someone else has already informed me about whatever bacon-related thing they’re also thinking of sending me.
Thus: The Canonical Bacon Page, the place to go to post the bacon-related links you want me to know about — and also the place to be for the latest and greatest in bacon-related stuff online.
Here’s how it works:
1. You find something bacon-related on the Internet.
2. Rather than sending it to me in e-mail, you post it here in the comments.
3. The whole world basks in your superior bacon skillz.
It’s just that simple.
That said, to be sure you don’t “bogart the bacon” — and to make sure that your comment doesn’t get trapped in the moderation queue, I request that each comment be limited to one (1) bacon-related link. That is, one bacon-related item, picture, story, etc. Don’t just post a link to the Archie McPhee catalog; that’s lazy.
The fun and utility of this page will be entirely up to you, good bacon finders — it’s up to you to fill the comments with bacony goodness. I look forward to enjoying the hickory-smoke brilliance of your contributions.
So: What bacon-related links have you got to share with the class?
