Bacon fanaticism appears poised and ready for its leather jacket and water skis. What was once cool, will soon find itself towed along by Richie Cunningham to its embarrassing, watery demise, i.e., jumping the shark.
In fact, even the inevitable bacon-worship backlash has jumped the shark. And yet, like a car accident that we can’t tear our gazes away from, we’re following The Great Bacon Odyssey. Just launched by Wired’s GeekDad blog, the Odyssey is a taste test series devoted to “unconventional” bacon products. First up: bacon jellybeans and a bacon-laced chocolate bar.
Perhaps it’s time for us to find a new food obsession? Might we suggest shark?
Did we just jump the shark by writing about jumping the shark? Was foodiggity ever cool in the first place?
