    The 24-hour news cycle's adept at overwhelming you with politics, the economy, and kidnappings of attractive people, but can it keep you up-to-date on the most crucial topic of all, sizzling breakfast meat? Now it can, with Bacon Today

    Bacon Today's a regularly updated piggy news center, set up like a legit CNN-style site with categories like Economics, Entertainment, and "Bacon Around Town"; the idea was hatched by an Orange County cinematographer and a jazz webcaster whose Love Supreme is clearly not kosher. The duo both trolls the web and creates their own content, with items ranging from anti-pork-barrel activists sending Ohio congressman John Boehner raw bacon ("The Boehner Bacon Scare"), to film-set catering tables brimming with the good stuff ("Bacon Goes Hollywood"), to the authors' own attempt at vigilante justice (smuggling bacon into In-N-Out). On the lifestyle side, there's the innovative Smaste index (a trademarked formula hybridizing smell & taste), plus a slew of recipes, most awesomely bacon-laced cinnamon rolls, Bacon Diet Coke, and serving bowls made entirely of bacon, which you would presumably put bacon in, or possibly potpourri

    To bring in the man on the street (you), there's also a hotline with a jaunty theme song where readers can drop tips and thoughts, the best of which'll be posted online as MP3s. Unfortunately, this level of bacon integration will ensure that, when you get kidnapped, the story will remain relatively hush-hush.

    It seems a little ridiculous for certain things to be off-limits -- seriously, how do you expect to keep your private life on boil if you can't text your chickens while driving? For a scrumptious blog from a guy who realized he could have his pig and eat it too, check Adventures in Pork

    From a local Muslim who decided his faith's laws against hoovering hog were misguided enough to defy during a six-week stint in Rome last summer, newly launched Adventures documents his steps towards full porcine conversion as he "eats various pork dishes for the first time in his life and divulges his thoughts", although most not so awesomely third-person. Now consume his words

    First taste of Bacon, in penne a la vodka w/ pancetta: "Through my days of restriction, nearly every pork eating person ... mentioned bacon as a favorite. This always managed to surprise me, as I always thought other forms of pork looked so much tastier. While pancetta in pasta sauce was really tasty, I attributed the bulk of the talent to the sauce. I decided to wait patiently for the magic of bacon to reveal itself in later dishes". (Spoiler alert: It did.

    Trip to NC for ribs: "I realized that what I was missing out on was, in fact, simply meat. For the first time, I thought of how arbitrary the restriction of pork was. I'm missing out on kangaroo, shark, and elephant too" -- thank god for panda, lettuce & tomatoes, or the guy would starve

    A visit to Huong Lan for Banh Mi: "[It]had it all; Pho, banh mi, and a highly abrasive Vietnamese woman telling us about the different sandwiches and simultaneously yelling at us for not already knowing...it seems that chicken and beef get worse tasting as you go down in grade, whereas pork just gets better". Note: area sex-crimes detectives, he is talking about food

    Eventually, the intrepid porkster comes face-to-fat with that bacon he so callously hated on when he finds "the new object of my interest: Pork belly ... Bacon, my old nemesis, in its purest form. The image of a half inch thick piece of bacon sizzling on a Korean BBQ griddle remains the goal in my mind" -- suggesting that there's an inverse relationship between bacon sizzling and private life boiling.

    The Joy of Cooking may be the most well-known cookbook in the world, but did you know it only has three recipes involving bacon? If you did, shoot yourself. If you're still alive, purchase The Bacon Freak Cookbook

    From the geniuses who brought you bacon-laden pancake mix and bacon jerky, The Bacon Freak Cookbook's exactly as genius as it sounds, with many of its hoggy recipes coming from renowned chefs, apparently none of whom are Jews. Each recipe's written specifically for a simpleton/non-cooker to follow, and're broken into categories, which start with delicious takes on traditionally porky meals, like breakfast (bacon burritos w/ avocado; biscuits & gravy w/ bacon grease-cooked sausage) and lunch treats like the Asian bacon Num Pang sandwich, and Chi-town stud Rick Bayless' avocado-mango salad, which's topped with four sow-strips, in case anyone ever overhears you ordering an "avocado-mango salad". There's also a slew of dinner options, including juicy bacon-wrapped lobster kebabs and a bacon-laced rice and beans recipe from a private yacht chef, as well as appetizers like shrimp BLT's w/ dijon mustard vinaigrette, bacon wrapped medjool dates w/ goat cheese & balsamic, and Atlanta chef Gary Unger's chipotle raspberry bacon (guess which three ingredients were left in his refrigerator?)

    If your sweet tooth is obese, there're even deserts (bacon grilled s'more; pork-laden custard pie) and a couple of boozy drinks -- another well-known thing that can turn pretty much anything into a joy.

    If bacon wasn't the greatest thing on earth, then Kyra Sedgwick wouldn't be happily married to him for the last twenty thre-- wait a sec. Who in the hell is "Special Agent Fritz Howard", Kyra?! What about your family!?! For a new food cart slinging nothing but what's apparently Sedgwick's second favorite meat, the Bacon Bacon Truck, rolling out for the first time today. From a Cole Valley dude who originally moved to SF to manage his brother's rock band, the BBT is a 1986 Chevy lifted from a retired Hayward burger-maker, now serving up SF's first fully pork-ified menu, which includes just one sans-pork menu item, though if you order it, you immediately fall through a trap door into a pool of lame. The list of fatty swine-topped eatables was developed with help from a chef buddy (Olives in Boston, Rubicon and One Market in SF), and sports six sandwiches on Nash Baker bread, including three classics like a grilled cheese smothered in tomato and bacon jam, also a Looney Tunes film in which Louie Anderson plays the Michael Jordan character, and just ends up eating Porky Pig and most of the Monstars. The other trio's an exercise in porky miscellany -- there's the Banh Mi (two 3.5oz pork meatballs, pickled veggies, bacon, cilantro), the Almost Veggie (broccoli rabe, roasted red pepper, melted provolone, Sriracha aioli, bacon), and a griddled pork belly/farm-fresh fried egg/arugula/caper aioli mouthful dubbed "The Belly", which Jonah Hill fans can sadly no longer enjoy. There's also on-the-side eats like Parmesan fries for bacon deniers, spicy belly fries (topped w/ pork belly trimmings), and the bacon bouquet (a bunch of bacon bundled like flowers), plus draft root beer and dessert treats like chocolate-covered bacon, which is what Kevin sexily tried on Valentine's Day when he realized his wife was much Closer with the oil company CEO from Free Willy 2.

    The morning after a night of heavy partyin', many people experience that moment of clarity, and, accepting full responsibility for their actions, decide not to listen to Jay-Z again 'til at least the afternoon. Or, more profoundly, decide to create Bacon Hot Sauce

    One morning, three hungover college friends were bickering about what was more important to have with their eggs -- bacon or hot sauce -- when the clouds opened, God winked, and from that day forth each friend knew his destiny: to bring the world Bacon Hot Sauce, then make a pact to lose his virginity during the post-prom party at Stifler's mom's house. In order to learn the industry before blowing its mind, they spent months traveling to hot sauce festivals and communing with the field's "thought leaders", ultimately creating five different iterations of their sauce, before settling on the sixth prototype and selecting a humble co-packer in...Pittsburgh, CA, a town whose previous claim to fame was ending a BART line, and being confused with a place even worse. Onto that sauce: BHS's vinegar based, with a Carolina-style BBQ first bite, followed by not-too-heavy hints of cayenne pepper and New Mexico chilies, before finishing with a solid burst of bacony goodness and a whisp of liquid smoke, also the by-product of an effective electric slide.

    Because why not, they're also selling BHS tees, and are gonna be hittin' foodie events like this weekend's Bacon Camp, where people from all over'll be able to experience that moment of clarity, right before their hearts explode.

    Deerfield Beach's Boca Java just dropped their ingenious Arabica-bean Maple Bacon Morning Coffee, which smells like maple syrup, sports a mild flavor with subtle notes of bacon (and more maple), and is said to have an "attractive mouthfeel and body", the same qualities that kept it from getting the crap beat out of it in coffee prison.

    This shaving lather from a Wisconsin soap maker promises to smell "just like fresh, maple-cured bacon right before you put it into the frying pan", which begs the question: what the hell does bacon smell like before you put it in the frying pan?

    The first collaboration between two iconic Seattle food/beverage crews (Jones Soda and Bacon Salt) -- this best-served-cold drink's both sweet and savory with a burst of porcine flavor that "tastes just like drinking a pig"; the liquid awesome can be enjoyed in cocktail form, thanks to a recipe from Cap Hill drinkery Tavern Law, that suggests you turn heavy cream, egg white, maple syrup and bourbon into a Yankee Breakfast Fizz, aka the breakfast of not-even-the-American-League-Champions.

    Some things are complicated, like superstring theory. Some are not, like bacon jerky. Since superstring theory's impossible to get out of your teeth, eat Bacon Jerky. From Bacon Freaks, the pork-crazed visionaries who brought us bacon-spiked pancake mix, this 100% swine line claims to be the world's first commercially produced bacon jerky, making them every bit as awesome as the dude who invented sex. Eschewing commercial bacon, most of which's pumped full of flavor-sapping water, the Freaks start with hearty cuts of their in-house Boss Hog brand, which's hickory smoked, hand rubbed, and dry-cured to produce an ideally meaty slab; the hog then undergoes a proprietary convection oven process and emerges fully jerkified, with its fatty deliciousness still intact and in strips so easily chewable, they won't be the least bit at odds with your Polident. The initial line includes five flavors: Honey BBQ, Cajun Style, Jalapeno, Pepper, and a sticky-sweet tomato number called Summer BLT, because you've got all winter to eat lettuce. If bacon jerky's a little too real for you, you can tone it down with their Ham Jerky, a less-fatty jerk product made with hams aged for almost an entire year to bring out their flavor, because some things are complicated, and others are not, like forgetting about a ham for a year to contemplate bacon.

    Foodzie, the local e-slingers of all things delectable, have unearthed a Seattle-made jam you'll wanna slather on everything because it's made of fine bacon rendered with onions/spices/balsamic vinegar before it's simmered for four hours, pureed, chilled, jarred, and shipped to your door unless your mailman was the one who intercepted your X-Ray glasses.

    Now available from handcrafted cleanliness experts Soapier, this glorious bar depicts a pair of streaky sow strips against a green background, and is deeply infused with the flavour of pig candy ("you'll have dreams of heavenly fields of bacon, fed to you by really hot women"). Nonetheless, it stays kosher by "not including any of said meat product" -- because besides a deep clean, there's nothing more satisfying than...constantly smelling something you'll go to hell for actually eating?

    Step into Primehouse and order up these part lighting, part flavor little beauties that melt down, then watch the waiter pour the bacon-y goodness all up in your food (they've also recently dabbled in getting some vinaigrette in there and using it to dress a spinach salad). The candles are even available for take-home use in the kitchen or bedroom, provided the missus doesn't keep kosher.

    Because even fat pigs deserve a home: Bacon. Conceived by the motliest of crews (architect, insurance agent, resto expert, Southside Sanctuary t-shirt designer), this porcine transformation of the Screaming Goat bungalow sees chefs from Along Came a Slider and El Arbol work wonders on 150lbs of p-belly cured in-house daily, as the pigs were very insistent with their protests of "Don't take me to no hospital!".

    By-the-slice, ultra-thick hog-strips come in blackened or hickory styles for now, with soon-to-arrive flavors including hatch green chile, coffee-rubbed, and cinnamon; Babe-bits are also creatively snuck into breakfasts ranging from build-your-own tacos to Bacon Waffles topped with sliced bananas, coincidentally the fruit you'd be most likely to pork someone with. The rest-of-the-day menu counts starters including Bac-Fries (sharp cheddar, chives, sour cream) and Sweet Corn Fritters (w/ bacon aioli, of course), daily specials like deep-fried pork ribs in bleu cheese crumbles, and substantial standbys like the steak + bacon Double Grind Burger, which unlike the Double Grindhouse won't have you walking out midway through the first patty.

    Since nothing pairs better with swine than swill, they're also boasting 30+ bottled beers, with more local micros on the way, guaranteed to turn your crew motley, and your already swinish body into a local macro.

    Currently online-only, this crew's pigged-up the bakery concept by adding substantial cuts of bacon to every single thing they produce, from brownies, to blueberry muffins, to chocolate peanut butter cookies, to chocolate-dipped rice krispy bars. They also hawk merch with slogans like "Life is just better with bacon", which is too bad, because it's also shorter.

    If you're a true son of Chicago, then no matter where you go the city's spirit stays with you -- the indomitable friendliness, the indomitable accent, and the urge to make yourself and those around you grossly fat. Accomplishing the latter in new and exciting ways, J&D Foods' "Baconnaise".

    Co-founded in Seattle by a 'Cago guy who financed his first piggy foray -- Bacon Salt -- with $5000 from his toddler's prize-winning, tee-ball smashing America's Funniest Home Videos entry, J&D's just jarred a stupefying combination of every sandwich's two essentials, bacon and mayo. Six months of rigorous testing produced a Thousand Island-colored spread that contains no actual meat and's certified kosher, a miracle, considering test subjects "wanted less mayo taste and more bacon taste -- it should be Baconnaise, not Mayocon". While spooning directly into your mouth is perfectly acceptable, fatty, the site also offers up recipes like creamy bacon mashed potatoes, bacon Caesar dressing, and a "No-B-L-T" that suggests skipping the crispy stuff altogether -- but hopefully your penis will suggest otherwise.

    To drum up excitement, J&D just posted a vid of two guys wrestling in 6,000lbs of regular mayo -- proving you can take the man out of Chicago, but you can't take the Chicagoan out of the condiment.
