Bacon festival is shortcut to heaven — in more ways than one2/10/2013
When we say the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival in Des Moines, Iowa, is a shortcut to heaven, we mean it's exactly how we picture paradise: 10,000 pounds of sizzling bacon served in every conceivable form. And it's all being consumed by happy throngs of people wearing Viking hats and pig noses. Wow, that's a lot of bacon. The annual festival's 8,000 tickets sold out in three minutes, so we imagine plenty of people agree with us. Here's a little simple math — 10,000 pounds of bacon divided between 8,000 people plus unknown quantities of beer has to equal at least on heart attack. Everyone enjoy your bacon safely; we want to pig out next year with you, the one little pig the governor pardoned and the girl who was crowned Bacon Queen. Which, weirdly enough, is also what our tramp stamp says. [Source]
