Be the Bacon

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 5/1/19
  • QIC: Bada Bing
  • The PAX: Blackout (respect), Blowout, Dollar Bill, GNC, Duck (double respect), FNG-Swan Dive, Heisenberg - Nantan, Bob the Builder, Terminator

10 PAX posted in the gloom under the guise and rumor that bacon 🥓at a beatdown would actually be true. YHC figured what better way to combat the fartsack than with a rumor of delicious bacon. It must have worked as we were graced not only with the usual suspects but also newly named regional Nantan, Heisenberg and an FNG. YHC has heard the popular saying “bring home the bacon” and YHC does his best to follow this principle. This popular saying somewhat gets the point across about how important bacon is in our society i.e. that it is equal with money. I mean, even vegetarians probably enjoy the smell of bacon. Who doesn’t? But today YHC has a new message for the PAX. “Be the Bacon!” The PAX would soon learn what this meant, but first. 

Disclaimer given, FNG welcomed.

Do you like bacon? You probably do. Its good by itself and makes other foods better by its addition. Bacon wrapped steaks, baked beans with bacon, bacon on salad. Bacon, egg and cheese biscuits. Bacon burgers. Chocolate covered bacon and of course eggs and bacon for breakfast. Bacon adds a great flavor to the foods we eat and you get excited when you hear that bacon is being added to a dish you love. Everyone loves to see bacon coming.

Do people love to see you coming? When you walk into a room do people say “Oh good! There is ___________”? (Credit: F3Alpha Jan Newsletter)

“It has been said that Eating Crispy Bacon Before You Exercise Speeds Up Your Metabolism” That’s great news because we have bacon…but better than metabolism is to accelerate your commitment and discipline! Today “bacon is more than bacon” but before the story continues… STOP: Hold the phone…I thought YHC said there would be bacon? 🥓 And with a word there was bacon and God said it was good…PAX said it was salty…All partook of the crispy bacon and enjoyed! 


Mosey around long way to bear crawl hall and somebody (dear God) find a water fountain…that bacon was crispy and salty.

Be the Bacon! Be the ingredient that adds flavor to those around you. Have the pleasant demeanor that people like to see walk in the door. If you’re like me, this is easier at F3 or at Work where we are “on our best behavior”. It is harder when we are at home with our Ms and 2.0s. We tend to relax our personal discipline and let our ugly selves show to those we love most. So Be the Bacon especially at home.

The difference between involvement and commitment is like bacon and eggs. The chicken is involved; the pig is committed. Will you be committed to your wife, your kids, taking the hard road, holding yourself accountable, posting to F3. Will you Be the Bacon! When you die, will you be able to say…
