    I had bacon on my burger yesterday. Feeling quite ashamed of myself for not paying due homage and swearing fealty and obedience.

    I eat my crackling as 'Chicharrones A la Lima, Peru' :

    First a good-sized pile of them cooked with "yerbas buenas" , then fried, and served with fried sliced rounds of sweet potatoes and a salad of raw onions and special hot peppers (sliced jalapenos are a good substitute), and all washed down with copious Crystal lager.
    The yerbas buenas are not just 'good herbs', but a specific herb, unobtalnable in Canada, so leave it out or try other herbs to taste.
    Eaten regularly like this the crackling makes you forget bacon even exists.

    Hail Bacon,
    Full of grease,
    The Lard is with thee.

    Blessed are thou among piggies,
    And blessed is the fruit of thy womb pig.

    Holy Piggy,
    Mother of Bacongod,
    Pray for us gluttons,
    Now and at the hour of our premature death,
    Amen!

    Praise Bacon!

    No not bacon! Just call me an infidel because I despise bacon. I might join a religion that worships chocolate as I have a sticker on my refrigerator that says, "If I ever need religion, I'll worship chocolate cake". I'm a very progressive ecumenical believer, so I will be tolerant to the bacon worshipers, as long as they don't force their bacon down my throat. Are you bacon worshipers fundamentalists?

    Joseph Campbell observed, time and again, that while priests and other authorities of different religions tend to shout at each other about the differences, the monks of completely separate traditions shared a common understanding of that feeling of connecting to the divine. Whether they achieved it through prayer, meditation, drugs, fasting, whatever it took, they understood each other at a basic level.

    Bacon or chocolate, as long as you're willing to rip it out of the hands of someone who doesn't appreciate or deserve it, I think we can find a common ground.
    Ever tried chocolate covered bacon? Could be a bridge...

    Thanks T2. Did some asking around, turns out Peru's "mysterious" herb is in fact spearmint Mentha spicata.

    I also plan to make homemade chocolate treats infused with weed.

    Two beers and chocolate treat makes any movie good.
