In Memoriam: Bacon
I’m sorry if I’m the first person to tell you this, but soon there will be no more bacon. As a society, we’ve been greedy and have basically drained our entire supply. The invention of the internet has brought on an age of bacon greed, one for which we will soon pay the ultimate price.
