Platonic food

Bacon is, of course, nature's most perfect food – fatty and salty and crunchy and easily eaten with the fingers. How can you beat that? My favorite salad has bacon on top, and the world's best meatloaf features bacon. Here's a paean to bacon. Go and make your house smell warm and welcoming.

I read somewhere, several years ago, that the meat that a vegetarian eats first when 'falling off the wagon' is bacon.

My 26 year old cousin was a vegetarian from like age 2 when she refused to eat meat. She recently started eating meat. Her forst choice--BACON. Shortly thereafter, while on a trip to Australia, she ate kangaroo.

Personally, I would have stayed a vegetarian if faced with kangaroo.
