Picture this, you go to a restaurant for a nice meal. You look over the menu and inside your mind you begin to jump for joy because they have a new bacon cheese burger! It costs a little bit more than you would normally pay for a burger but you take the hit because it’s bacon.
The whole time you’re waiting for your food you dream of thick cut perfectly smoked strips of pork belly. You see the waiter carrying a tray of food and coming towards your table. You take a closer look at the food and realize that, yes it is yours.
Your mouth begins to water at the thought of biting into that delicious meat treat. You’re so excited you lose all concept of time and it seems as if the waiter is now moving in slow motion. “Come on, hurry up!” You think as the waiter takes another slow agonizing step. An old woman puts her hand up to get his attention, she wants another lemon and more sugar because she is too cheap to pay for lemonade and will just make it herself.
You instantly wish the grim reaper would stop slacking off. It’s obvious he’s not doing his job because no person should ever be that old. The waiter, like a pro, nods at the old woman and continues on to your table.
The anticipation has almost brought you to tears as the waiter slowly lowers the plate in front of you. You look at the burger and your heart sinks into your feet. Where’s the bacon?
You lift the bun to reveal two small thin fatty over cooked rashers of what this place calls bacon. You look up to complain but the waiter is gone. It took him what seemed like hours to get here and what seemed like milliseconds to leave. So you do what everyone else does in this situation, you eat it and complain about it to your friends.
This has happened far too often in this country and it’s about time someone did something about it. We can’t sit by and just accept sub-par bacon. That is why I have started a petition to “Stop Bad Bacon.”
By signing it you are taking a vow that you will not stand for this type of tom foolery. If an establishment dose not use high quality bacon then refuse to order their bacon dishes. This might be hard for some people. I know the lure of bacon is great and some might think that crap bacon is better than no bacon, but I’m here to tell it’s not.
If you can stick to this vow it will change the world. Restaurants will be forced to change the way they think about bacon and start providing us with what the consumer really wants, high quality bacon.
Please click here and sign your name then past it along to others that love bacon. Together we can change the world!
