Top 5 Reasons Bacon Makes Me Cry

Look, I realize this is a risky post for some of my blog readers.  I hope you'll continue to read this, even though it's anti-bacon.

I'll also show you this lovely picture of crispy bacon to distract you and dull your senses.

As far as my diet is concerned, I am closer to a vegetarian than a carnivore. I was a pescetarian for several years until we discovered that I am carnitine deficient (this is related to my VLCADD carrier status).  The easiest way to add carnitine to your diet is to eat meat, so I eat poultry again.

Anyways, I digress.  I don't eat pork (or beef).  I actually stopped eating most pork, with the exception of bacon, long before bacon made me cry.

So, without further ado,

The Top 5 Reasons Bacon Makes Me Cry

5 - I'll be brief about this, but let's just say that pork causes some gastrointestinal issues for me. I won't go into detail and I highly suggest you don't use your imagination.

4 - We live en route to Smithfield, VA, so I see (and smell) this a lot:

Pig trucks make me cry for a variety of reasons.  Cute little piggies.

3 - Okay, I can admit that I love the taste of bacon.  Sometimes I cry when I think about how good it tastes and how I don't eat it anymore.  I might, one day, forget how bacon tastes and I'm not sure how I feel about that.

2 - Um, yeah...

and finally...

The Number One Reason Bacon Makes Me Cry

1 - This is what I see when I look at bacon.  I can't eat that! I can throw live crabs in boiling water but all I see is a smiling piglet when I see bacon.  Do you understand why this is a problem for me?

Bonus info:
The pork processing plants are located on Virgina State Route 666.
