Let Bacon take its rightful crown, to reign over the other meats it has defeated BLESSED ARE THE BACONMAKERS GOD SAVE THE BACON NATION, AND ALL WHO SAIL IN HER Reply Johnathon S April 24th, 2009 Was there really any doubt?! Bacon RULES! Reply Youppi April 24th, 2009 bacon wins on the day of a swine flu outbreak… Reply Taylor April 24th, 2009 I love how when bacon beats out steak it becomes a “fad”. I guess if that makes the steak lovers feel better about losing they can consider it that way. Reply Rachel April 24th, 2009 Yay!! So can I get some of that bacon on my ‘Mix My Granola’ or what?! Reply Jason April 24th, 2009 Oy veh. Reply Raiders757 April 24th, 2009 Yea!! Steak wins!!! I love bacon just as much as anyone else, but I know the fix was in, and refuse to recognize it as the winner. It’s kind of like a poll where Abba beats out Led Zeppelin. Most know who’s the better of the two, but nothing could be done to stop rabid fans from fixing the results. Reply Cary April 24th, 2009 “Most know whoâ€™s the better of the two, but nothing could be done to stop rabid fans from fixing the results.” Oh come on, and Miley Cyrus is the best musician in the world? Of course not, but she has millions of rabid fans who would vote for her over Led Zeppelin any day. Everyone has different tastes, respect the winner. Also, this has nothing to do with me predicting bacon as the overall winner, which didn’t take a rocket scientist to do. Reply Zenne April 25th, 2009 @Taylor But bacon has turned into a fad, for the moment. It’s been a staple in many recipes for a long time, but it has gone viral in almost every way possible on the internet in the past year. So all of the blogs cashing in on your interest can just send their fans on over – I’m surprised steak did as well as it did. It’s kind of like Colbert when he tells his followers to do…well, anything. Or 4channers voting up Rick Astley. Reply Hillary April 29th, 2009 Yea, I totally think you swayed the vote Jon with all your bacon blogging during the voting! I chose steak to take the tourney, ah well.
