Maybe only in America....

... and maybe only in Chicago, Illinois, the home of the old, large slaughterhouses, can there be a Baconfest... and there was, last weekend.  A few weeks ago the organizers noted:

"Baconfest 2011 is totally sold out and tickets cannot be had for love or money.

Their manifesto is worth reading too:

"We live in one moment in a great continuum – a single fatty cross section of our lives – a straight line from birth to death, punctuated by cured meat."

I love people that do what they believe in while making many people around them happy, not poor, and not stupid.
