I'm starting to think bacon needs to be a scarcer resource. We're getting to the ridiculous stage. That stage where we think that we'll never run out of bacon, so we might as well just start burning bacon in order to cook another order of bacon.
Matt Blum -- one of the bloggers at Wired's Geekdad -- embarked on the Great Bacon Odyssey several weeks ago. And his creation this week, a burger made entirely of bacon, would be beyond credulity if not for the cringeworthy, eight-minute video of him downing the 1/3-pound beast in front of his wife and two children.
With his bacon burger, Blum is pushing the bacon-flavored envelope. It comes just a week after Blum wrapped a burger in 10 slices of bacon, a la the Bacon Explosion. I'm a bit worried that he has bacon dementia. And if ever there was a series on Geekdad that could be sponsored by Crestor, this is it.
Inside a bun, the burger looks like a slightly reddish version of the standard beef option. It's only after the first bite that Blum appears to be struggling with the fatty goodness.
"Mmm...uh...that's...really bacony," says Blum.
Shortly thereafter he reaches for the mustard and also takes repeated swigs from a bottle of beer. His two kids shout words of encouragement in a video that bears some resemblance to watching competitive eating challenges in that Blum appears to be expending a lot of effort to both chew and swallow.
About two-thirds of the way through the video, his son asks him if he is sweating.
"Partially because when you eat a lot of meat, you sometimes sweat...and partially because the kitchen was really hot because the broiler was on," answers Blum.
You know what they stay. If you can't stand the meat, get out of the kitchen.
