Surge vs. Ecto Cooler - April 8, 2013 57 Responses « Older Comments Archbishop Superbishy April 23rd, 2009 I’m at a loss to understand the hostility to bacon here, or anger at the fact that the people who like it are organised to vote in this forum What have the steak supporters got to hide? Doesn’t the fact their preference isn’t supported with such dedication as bacon tell them anything? Bacon has led throughout the voting, which is just straight democracy. You may not like the result, but don’t knock the process, and once the porky victor has been declared, I trust we’ll all reunite as meat lovers and get behind the result Amen Reply Miles April 23rd, 2009 Steak….I know we can do this. If Bacon fights dirty , we have to as well. Gather the troops and let’s win this one! Juicy, hot, carnal steak. If Pan, the goat-god of mischief had to choose between sinking his teeth into a strip of salted fat, or an adrenaline filled high-quality steak…you know which he’d choose. Reply Archbishop Superbishy April 23rd, 2009 Miles: I think you’re just dividing meat lover against meat lover. Make sandwiches, not war Remember we have to get on with each other peaceably after this vote on the planet of meat. I’m sure the President of our Bacon Nation will want to maintain excellent diplomatic relations with the Steak Republic, and any breaches of the Geneva convention must be answered No fighting dirty: just a straight clean contest, I beg of you, for the sake of mankind. Whilst I appreciate and recognise your comments regarding goat-gods, I’m not sure any will be registered to vote on the SoGood electoral roll? Peace be upon you all Reply Alexis April 23rd, 2009 Bacon all the way. I would not be alive were it not for this succulent meat source. It should also be noted that steak is a genre, not a specific meat. It’s all in the cut. I mean, I hate cube, chuck, and flat iron steaks, but I loves me a filet, sirloin, or a good ol’ KC strip steak. That being said…. GO BACON!!! Reply Skiff April 24th, 2009 This is a little disappointing, but not surprising. I like bacon and its a great accompaniment, but steak is the truth. Reply Cindy November 23rd, 2013 Do we really need a contest to show how awesome bacon is?
