The loveable guys at Bacon Today scored an interview with Mike Nelson. I know what youâ€™re thinking, â€œWhoâ€™s Mike Nelsonâ€? Well, he was the guy from Mystery Science Theater 3000 (if you donâ€™t know what that is, congratulations youâ€™re not a nerd) and it turns out he is a lover of bacon.
Mike is calling February â€œBacon Stupidity Monthâ€; he is going to eat nothing but bacon for the whole month.
Mike Nelson: Well, itâ€™s as stupid as it sounds. I just vowed that for the month of February 2009, I would eat nothing but bacon. And Iâ€™m in my sixth day of it, and Iâ€™ve held true to it.
Mike Kirsch: Have you? So, nothing but bacon all day, every day?
Mike Nelson: No. Except I did make a few exceptions just so that I wouldnâ€™t go mad and so that I could visit other peopleâ€™s homes without them throwing me out.
Itâ€™s nice to know that Mike is going to be honest with us. If he goes to someones house he can eat other stuff. Still, I think trying to eat bacon everyday of the month is a pretty big feat.
You can listen or read the whole interview at BaconToday.com, Mike explains why his is doing it and what he is allowed to drink during the month.
I am glad to know Mike Nelson is still alive and a bacon lover. Maybe with this new found fame they will bring his show back, or at least the 3am reruns.
