Coffee vs Bacon, Battle to Dominate August

August 4, 2014 , , ,

Two of the internet’s most darling substances are having their national recognition months in August. Before twitter I can’t imagine how people stayed filled up with bacon and coffee.  Now there is a digital sip and a crunchy imaginary bite around every corner.  To tweet with no coffee is to tweet a dull stream. A month of coffee celebrations could leave the nation jittery, but the addition of bacon means we are risking putting on some porky pounds in the process.  I imagine that National Bacon Month will attract the seriously obsessed, while the coffee month will go mostly unnoticed outside of Starbucks.  The good news about both of these months is that you do not need to indulge in or purchase any bacon or coffee to party with your digital friends.  The use of both digital bacon and digital coffee is ubiquitous.  To refuse it or to mention your dietary restrictions is very silly when all you have to do is digitally toast your coffee and share your bacon.  The official International Bacon Day is the Saturday before Labor Day.  Can you think of the best festive way to cheer up all your friends this month by serving coffee and bacon, or dressing up like these items?  Here are some dedicated posts ready to stir your creativity about bacon.

  • Have a parade-dress up in coffee or bacon costumes and walk down the street
  • Invite friends to a pot-luck on line- bring exotic coffee drinks and bacon themed snacks
  • Start an expressive arts contest- poetry, prose, visual arts derived from the inspiration of bacon and coffee
  • Find the most obscure uses for both coffee and bacon and tell everyone about them
  • Create a game in which coffee and bacon battle to be the one remaining digital sustenance available on the internet

If you had to go to a desert island and have only coffee or only bacon for a month, which one would you choose?  I would go with coffee.  Are you planning to celebrate either of these special occasions?  What are your plans?  What could be more important than this?

What do you think?

I love this guy! I have seen him many times. I find his hacks are great.. Not always suitable for my life but often he gives me some great tips. ( what is that 6 strips of bacon?)
However all that bacon is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much imho. WOW. But I love the creativity.
