Since we have more bacon-related posts and references than the average site (evidence: here, here, here (sorta), and here [last paragraph]), I thought it was high time for a little synergy.It seemed especially fitting since the Rifftrax Blog’s original purpose — the promotion, discussion, and general appreciation of HATS — has become a bit lost.

    BACON!!!

Questions for you, readers:– Is it time to retire www.hats.com from the blogroll?

– What other worthy sites should be served up on our roll, perhaps slightly warmed, and accompanied by a lemon-garlic aioli?

I’ll choose ONE honorary blogroll recipient for the month of February to the person who makes the best case for that particular site. Needless to say, it should be a halfway decent, (1) non-porn-y site which is (2) not a shrine of appreciation to Larry Hagman and — dear Lord, please! — (3) not a combination of the sites disqualified in (1) and (2). Beyond that, pitch me any site which you think has earned its place on the right, there. ———>

It’s the bacon (for dogs, yes, yes, we know that) that has the flavor of bacon AND the flavor of cheese!

Is it really just for dogs…?

*** KEVIN ADDS:

Let’s not forget the Medieval scholar and monk version:

Roger Bacon

Nor can we neglect the troubled 20th century Irish painter:

Francis Bacon Self-Portrait Study 2

Really, Bacon is so versatile! And remember to blogroll its fond companion.

    Bill have you ever been to http://www.illmitch.com? It’s been around for years and I still can’t tell if it’s a joke or not. All I know is he’s a russian rapper/ skateboarder/ boxer and he’s faster then a Ranger Ford (lyrics from his groundbreaking sound Fast & Danger).

    I would personally add http://www.smalltime.com/Dictator

    The site for “Guess the Dictator or Sit-Com Character” quiz.

    There’s a crapload of names in there already (its HUGE), but the database is ever growing.

    Just TRY and stump it!

  • 3 Rob T Firefly on Feb 4, 2008 at 4:44 pm

    Obviously, there can be no site more vital to any blogroll than http://www.fanfiction.net/misc/Wrestling/

  • 4 Beautiful Mind on Feb 4, 2008 at 5:28 pm

    How bout this? It’s not as funny as Larry Hagman porn but really, what is?

  • 6 Neb on Feb 4, 2008 at 6:54 pm

    The choice is obvious: http://www.engrish.com

    THIS IS FUN TO MAKE A BLOG ON THE COMPUTER WEBSITE

    It’s like Timmy Big Hands on acid. Well, nothing like that, actually, except at some point in its construction the author undoubtedly said to himself, “Dude, my hands are HUGE.”

  • 10 Natureboy (Ken) on Feb 4, 2008 at 7:34 pm

    Oh God! The animator could have at least used people that have done voice over work before. Wow, that was bad!

    You know, I remember a time when this blog was based on the greatness that is the hat. A magical time, when the rivers ran with chocolate and the clouds were made of marshmallows. But as Bill rightly observed, we have strayed from that great purpose. We sought bigger and better things. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is where we failed. What we need is not some new-fangled contraption. We need to get back to the basics, yet incorporating what we have come to love about this blog. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: Lidsville.

    The perfect combination of hats and wackiness you could ever hope for. Guaranteed to increase blog visits by 3,000% or your money back! Think about it won’t you? Thank you.

    http://baconhat.com/

    It celebrates the bacon, and the hat. And nothing else, apparently.

    I dunno if it exists outside of Washington state, but Grocery Outlet has insane amounts of yummy bacon of all kinds, at randon. Currently enjoying applewood smoked, uncured bacon, costs something like $3 for 2 lbs. Very VERY yummy.

    And of course there’s the ever present guilty pleasure of uneven ends and pieces, usually the thickest and often fattiest (and therefore the most delicious) chunks of bacon.

  • 16 Mike Nelson on Feb 5, 2008 at 12:13 am

    Good Lord, (and I mean that) you have just described heaven.

    Show me GROCERY OUTLET!

    There is in the Wisconsin/Minnesota area something wonderful called Neuske’s.

    If it’s not heaven it’s a fine simulacrum.

    Bill, I’ve taken your words to heart. You don’t want any Larry Hagman sites? All right, then.

    Try this one…

    Non-Larry Hagman Site

  • 18 Beautiful Mind on Feb 5, 2008 at 3:37 am

    Aw c’mon! Those men are gods! Besides this site has fewer nitrates than 80% of the bacon related sites and it’s dentist approved!

  • 19 Teaser on Feb 5, 2008 at 4:04 am

    How about a Bill Daily website….

  • 20 wurwolf on Feb 5, 2008 at 4:43 am

    Is there any reason why bacon.com has a picture of a sausage sandwich… and no actual bacon in sight???

    I’m surprised no one has mentioned ilovebacon.com, although I will admit that its porny qualities cannot be overlooked. I’m unable to access the site at work. :(

  • 21 wurwolf on Feb 5, 2008 at 4:44 am

    Excellent recommendation… engrish.com is one of my favorite sites.

    No smorking!

    That dog is great and should be sitting at a table, playing poker with several other talking dogs. If you know what I mean.

    BWHAAH!! my bf loves your rifftrax, and mst3k(duh!) but he also likes saying “BACON!!!!” so it was an especially funny one. :)

  • 24 Bill Corbett on Feb 5, 2008 at 6:29 am

    A Patrick Duffy site, huh? I thought I was only one with a P.D. site.

    Oh, that IS mine…. Never mind.

    Ah, Nueskes….

    Drool…..

  • 26 SaucyRossy on Feb 5, 2008 at 6:40 am

    Bill let’s put Bacon aside for a moment (As hard as that would be to do) and look at the latest blog post by your fencing ninja enemy.

    If I were you I would hide because MJ is coming for you Corbett.

  • 27 Mystok on Feb 5, 2008 at 6:56 am

    Bacon… the greaser’s beer. Yeah, it makes no sense to me either and I thought it up.

    I’m surprised you don’t have the premier news site of news that is not news yet is reported as news in the newsworld created by non-news people who drink beer… http://www.fark.com.

    Wow, I had no idea the pooches were still online.

    Hope there’s nothing else out there I don’t know about, like my top-secret zucchini bread recipe.

    this site makes me happy.

    It will make you happy too. And no porn needed.

  • 31 The Elusive Robert Denby on Feb 5, 2008 at 8:33 am

    I would eat a dead dog if you wrapped it in bacon. And put some cheese on it. Maybe some gravy, because dead dog tends to be a little dry and stringy.

    Wanna go poke a dead body with sticks?

  • 32 Tv Miller on Feb 5, 2008 at 9:25 am

    Cease! This bacon.com sage is no wizard but an illusion. A giant ad page worth hundreds of dollars per visit or click mind you. He offers nothing to this world in crisp oily baconny wisdom. He (or she) probably doesn’t even rise until 11, never in time for breakfast, perhaps brunch with chef prepared omelets but without ever being within seven of bacon. I vote for the de-blogrolling of this link.

    Being that calamari.com and tonto.com (surprise?!) are not there and though I would like to see more support for redvines.com (damn you Twizzlers for confusing my palate) I believe that with some opened mind-ded-ness, this site is hilarious and time honored: http://www.rsdb.org

    I will opennly admit to not being too fond of Queensland banana benders.

  • 33 Brian O. on Feb 5, 2008 at 9:46 am

    Smoked duck? Say no more!

    Grocery Outlet appears to be all over the west coast, only as far east as Idaho. They carry a huge assortment of other stuff as well, cheapest seafood imaginable, and organic pizzas that’ll make your pelt stand on end.

    I recently purchased a gourmet chocolate bar which contains bacon. Expect a review soon.

  • 35 Virginia Corbett on Feb 5, 2008 at 10:19 am

    That’s insane! And, if I may say so, EXTREME!!!

    I want some. Or at least I want you to tell me about it… Review, sir! Review!

  • 36 Neb on Feb 5, 2008 at 11:00 am

    If that chocolate bar were sweetened with Sucralose, my Adkins practicing girlfriend would be in heaven. She eats things like butter wrapped in bacon. My arteries clog just thinking about it. Must go whip up a lecithin smoothie immediately…

  • 37 Hugh on Feb 5, 2008 at 1:01 pm

    I am proud to be on your blogroll, and right next to bacon. Nay, I am ecstatic.

  • 38 Bill Corbett on Feb 5, 2008 at 2:49 pm

    Well, I’ll be. You’re Mr. Deep Ape.

    I welcome you. More importantly, bacon welcomes you.

    Bacon is very friendly.

  • 39 Gordon on Feb 5, 2008 at 7:22 pm

    Bill,

    Why not try out Mike Sterling’s Progressive Ruin? It’s a comics blog with some interesting goodies.

    He also works in comic retail, and has a great sense of humor…at times. He also likes Swamp Thing, so keep that in mind.

    Hope this helps,
    Gordon

    The most disturbing bacon ever.

    But flying on Ham would be fun.
