          Is that a rhetorical question, cuz there is no other answer but yes. Bacon is not a boolean switch. It has a univalue of YES.

            Are you guys actually looking at the link I posted? That's the point of the question.

              I looked but it was too small to read. Please enlighten the rabble.

                    Got it! Great! To paraphrase H. Simpson "Bacon, what can't it do!"

                      Answer is always "Yes"; only the question varies ;)

                  The bacon would be gone before you finished thinking and resolving.
                  You need to use the Homer Simpson logic model: Do I want some bac(GULP). Doh!

                    Very funny, but they left out one of the most important questions: Can I afford the calories today?

                    (Of course, we all know what the choices for that would look like on the flowchart.)

                      It's bacon. You can ALWAYS afford the calories.

                      All things serve the Bacon.

                        I think wearing a shirt is more important than pants. But I'm not a guy so maybe my priorities are all screwy.

                          Agree on wearing a shirt vs. pants. But either way - bacon grease spatters on junk or elsewhere hurts like the dickens. :-)

                          I was coming onto this thread to say "How can you even ASK that question?" until I saw the flow chart. TOO funny! :-D

                            Yes, you should eat bacon. But, when possible, try to eat really GOOD bacon. Make it count. Make it worth every bite. Try to avoid the gummy, wretched water-added bottom-dollar discount brands. But then, if you're even asking this question you probably haven't had the good stuff. If you've been eating the cheap stuff, try a better brand like Broadbent's (available online) or Mahogany Smoked Meats (available online only in California). Or go to Trader Joe's.

                              Bob, I suggest you read Sarah Katherine Lewis's book: "Sex and Bacon." Ms. Lewis was an escort for several years and she ascertained that you can never have enough sex or bacon. Her memoir is hilarious and a great read.

                                Having just made avocado, bacon and cheese sandwiches for dinner with a side salad of spinach, poached pear, blue cheese and of course, bacon, this reaffirmed my belief that bacon is good. The chart was a welcomed dessert. Thanks.

                                  This reminds me of a bumper sticker I saw recently: "Bacon is a Vegetable"

                                    If it were up to Congress, it probably would be, at least for school lunch purposes.
