    I'm seeing a divine trinity of bacon, chocolate and weed emerging. Truly god is great. Bacon o akbar. Magni animi est!

    I know my brother, and at least one teacher aide at my school will join me!

    Would you?

    You wouldn’t have to go to church! However, you would have to consume the flesh of bacon and give thanks to the poor piggie that gave up its life for it!

    Instead of church, regular meetings where the consumption of bacon, and other pork products, are a must, as well as appropriate beverages!

    How many of you would join such a religion?

    A couple questions first...

    Do we have to go door to door on Saturday mornings spreading the good word about pork belly?

    And Canadian bacon...what about Canadian bacon? I personally enjoy it but there might be people who consider it apostasy.

    Firstly, no, we will not go door to door on Saturday mornings to spread the word. This is because we just ate a lot of bacon fro breakfast and are too sleepy to do anything like that.

    Secondly, Canadian bacon is called ham. Don't try and add things into the religion just because you Americans can't use words good.

    When I lived in Canada, many years ago, what we Americans call Canadian bacon was known as "back bacon." That was in Vancouver.

    Actually, as long as it's Canadian bacon, I might join this cult. Canadian bacon is good on pizza. Can we nominate pizza for Sainthood? Or, at least make it a holy sacrament?

    Ham (in whatever form) and pineapple pizza is already a sacrament in the worship of the Invisible Pink Unicorn (Peace Be Upon Her Holy Hooves.) And She has no least objection to weed, or chocolate.

    In general, though, worshiping the foods you eat is a foulness unto Her nostrils. As I've tried to convince the followers of that silly floating pasta, there is a special area in the Dark and Drear Spiky Place where those who show excessive gluttony by worshiping their foodstuffs will have it endlessly force-fed to them, forever and ever, or at least until they cheer up and call upon Her omnihumorous mercy. Repent, repent, before it is too late!

    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.
    Crackling is good.

    My hubby often says that pork belly meat is a fortunate circumstance to the creation of crackling!

    Aww man, now I am conflicted!

    heck no! Saturday’s are for resting after consumption of copious amounts of bacon and beer!

    And Canadian bacon...what about Canadian bacon? I personally enjoy it but there might be people who consider it apostasy.
    Yes, Canadian Bacon is ok.

    Yes. Canadian Bacon is counted, as is streaky, short cut, regular, rind on, rind off etc.
