I’m with Maddox on this one: people have ruined bacon by loving it too much. Sure, the die-hards will claim their stake, but after Epic Meal Time increased their power levels with bacon strips and bacon strips (and bacon strips), it’s become more of a food cliche, which is the absolute worst fate a food can have. See: Krispy Kreme. Anyway. A San Francisco-based, bacon-themed restaurant has been forced to close because its bacon aroma was too intense for its neighbors. That, and it failed a health check last year.
In completely modern fashion, while Bacon Bacon’s neighbors objected to the restaurant’s crazy fumes, not helped when the owner absolutely refused to comply with their requests, the internet jumped at the chance to create an online petition to re-instate the restaurant’s permits. It’s an example of internet fanboyism clashing with real world expectations. Smelling bacon is fine in meal-time settings. Smelling it all the time, especially when you’re operating a business, is not exactly ideal. Sure, the restaurant had its fans (it’s operating out of a food truck at the moment), but it appears the internet-at-large is far more interested in the bacon ideology than the physical complexity of having to deal with the food.
Get over it, people.
