    Default Why does the internet love bacon?

    This is sort of a thread about memes on the internet, why is bacon a meme? Is it an American thing or just an online thing? Also what is the Honey Badger meme about? As in honey badger dont care or honey badger dont give a shit meme?

    Does anyone know a good website for explaining these like a wiki of memes?

    Personally, I am usually the last one to hear about those. But at least I know where to look them up

    Bacon is the food of the gods. This is not a cultural meme, this is science. I do think its kind of an American thing. God, I love my country, and bacon.

    Also, re: honey badger:

    Yeah, I'd seen the vid clip of the honey badger before on Cracked.com in one of their articles about badass animal kingdom types, that camp commentary just about ruined that BTW.

    The camp commentary is the whole point, though...

    Lark doesn't like sassy fags. So he'd naturally not find it amusing.

    Which is fine because honeybadger ain't care.

    I didn't know that the whole bacon theme qualified as a meme. I just thought that a lot of people like bacon...

    A lot of people like bacon, but I suspect it's more of an American based phenomenon (particularly in the south) which is why it would seem strange to someone from your side of the Atlantic. I'm in Texas and it's practically a kind of religious sacrament.
