PULITZER? IT'S A NOBEL:

Can bacon save the world? (S.E. Cupp, June 28th, 2010, Daily Caller)

After recently reading about an artist who created multi-colored bacon in the New York Daily News, I made a discovery that changed my life: There’s a website called BaconToday.com, which offers “Daily Updates on the World of Sweet, Sweet Bacon.” There you can find sweet treats, like maple bacon ice cream, or read about a bacon marriage proposal. Think no one’s dumb enough to get a bacon tattoo? You’re wrong, and BaconToday.com has the photo. Or buy the Bacon Freak cookbook (subtitle: “Bacon is Meat Candy”). And when the rest of the media is stuck on the goings on at BP and in Afghanistan, only BaconToday.com will give you the story that San Francisco is trying to make Mondays meatless. Oh, the horror.

In today’s world of soy-latte-macrobiotic-vegetarian political correctness, it’s refreshing to see there’s someone out there who isn’t afraid to celebrate the salty, fatty, meaty goodness of bacon with childlike wonder. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m partial to eating things that once had parents…and I do so almost exclusively. So I sent out a tweet imploring the man behind Bacon Today to get in touch with me…he didn’t, but I hunted him down online, as I’m wont to do. Here’s my sweet, sweet bacony interview with James Loosbrock, the man, the myth, the bacon legend, who thinks bacon might actually save the world. Do I smell a Pulitzer? No wait, that’s just bacon.

S.E. CUPP: What led you to start a website celebrating all things bacon? You got a beef against pigs or something? Is this a pig jihad?

James Loosbrock: One word: it’s bacon.
