Yes, Bacon Just Might Save Us

Sunday, 5 p.m. It is a little-known fact that if bacon were provided free to every man, woman and child on the planet — not for a limited time, but in perpetuity —wars would stop, the global economic crisis would cease and the tragedy of environmental despoliation would suddenly come to an end. This is for the simple reason that bacon cures human suffering. Among the few people to have recognized this power of bacon are the organizers of the Brooklyn Bacon Takedown, a cook-off at Radegast Hall and Biergarten Beer Garden in Williamsburg. Save the world — eat bacon.
