Star Wars Bacon

| Thursday, July 15
Yes, you read that correctly. This is one of the many reasons I love Twitter and my geeky friends I've made there. If you are a regular reader of Crayons and Cylons, you know that I am quite the fan of bacon. But as we all should know, I am not the only one. It all started out as an innocent tweet about my dog:
Then it began to elicit responses such as this:
To which I responded:
It began to spiral out of control from there...

...as everyone had their own opinions on the epic epicness of bacon.
But what Nick said caught my attention. I mean, come on. Star Wars bacon?! How incredible is that?!
I issued a challenge. My friends were game...
Lo and behold, there was success!
We feasted our eyes upon this:
Not a TIE fighter, but an AT-AT. Nick's work was astounding. He won the Internets last night!
I would still like to see a bacon TIE fighter. If you ever see one or make one, please share it with me!

While Nick was using his Google skills, fueled by the power of 34 (though, technically, 32, as this was not Star Wars bacon pr0n), other things were happening. Scary things.

I discovered there is a Twitter baconbot. His name is @Bacon_FTW
Then, Nicole had to go and do this:
It led us to Bacon Today, and their story about some crazy guy who's figured out how to DYE BACON! Why would you ever commit such an atrocity?!
Her find started to bring down the bacon high we were all on from the discovery of Star Wars bacon.
But then CT from Nerd Lunch rode in on his trusty PhotoShop steed and presented us with teh awesome.
And with that, I called it a night.
It had been an epic adventure that would not have been possible without the power of teh Tubez. It is both a blessing and a curse. And for that, I thank you, Al Gore's head in a jar.
