So, does anyone recall how bacon became the official BGG food? We have Winkles and wicker baskets, and even the Yahoo boots (which I still don't understand), but when did bacon become the Chit Chat topic guaranteed to garner many thumbs?

BACON!

BACON!

Oh man I'm going to buy a pound of bacon tomorrow and eat it all (sharing with my roommates, of course, since bacon is meant for EVERYBODY!)

Well, that settles it then. My only request is that the bacon comes from a baby that has been kicked.

I need a bacon micro badge, STAT!

BTW, did I ever tell you all that I'm giving my father in law "Bacon of the Month" club for Christmas? He's still got 10 months to go. I'm so jealous. I think I'm going to make bacon-pig as the finale.

OMG, I didn't even notice that! That's terrific! Very clever, Isaac.

By any chance, are you actually both a Cubs and a Braves fan? Can one man take so much suffering?

Man, if that were a singular bacon icon, I'd have it in place of the lightning bolt. But if I get the current one, then my shades won't match my drapes.

Or something like that.

EDIT: Oh, and I'm a Braves fan from a long way back, and I guess I'm a Cubs fan, as much as any non-native Chicagoan can be. The only one that isn't strictly accurate is the "Retailer" badge. Can we get a bacon badge in the shape of an S? If so, I'll be set!

All bacon goes to Eleven. Unless it's floppy.

I believe bacon has replaced pork as the official comedy meat.

Let us not forget the comedic value of the lowly Spam

Btw, if you haven't tried it, Brittish-style bacon is much better than our American bacon - a much nicer, meatier cut. If there are any Freash & Easy markets in your neighborhoods, you might find some there.

BACON!


Ah it all started back in aught aught just after Aldie & Co. had partied in that fabled time of 1999. They knew that the servers of BGG were due to crash and hordes of gamers would start turning into mindless creatures of pure rage. In anticipation of the sure fire upcoming horror, they stocked up on emergency supplies. Sadly, they waited until just before midnight because, well, they were procrastinating. So in a somewhat hung over stupor they purchased 800 pounds of bacon, which they divvied up and put in their freezers.

Fast forward a couple of years and it was becoming that increasing clear that the Armageddon of 2000 was not going to happen. It was also clear that the gamers were indeed turning into mindless creatures of pure rage. By that time Aldie had turned BGG into a full time job and need to pay some bills to upgrade to a sturdier cardboard box in which to work. BRAINSTORM - There were still 750 pounds of bacon floating around so Aldie slyly started dropping hints about how awesome bacon was. As bacon futures began to take off like an albatross gamers everywhere (you know excpet for the vegimatarians) started jumping on the bacon bandwagon.

Now Aldie is down to 75 pounds of bacon from the year 2000. So buy some bacon to help support BGG. Bacon's Good & Great!!

And here I was getting excited that someone was planning the BGG Alternative Convention, a.k.a. BACON. C'mon, it'd be an easy sell, as it's guaranteed to sizzle!
