Bacon Challenge 2009
Uncooked pork belly


In an act of swine influenza-induced madness, Kelapstick, a.k.a. "Geo," has proposed the creation of a series of bacon-related articles over a short period of time. This gargantuan and meticulously planned effort will then be unleashed to dominate DYK and produce a DYK grouping with nothing but bacon related hooks. This ingenious and highly constructive proposal from a bacon maniac and co-founder of the bacon cabal (and board member in good standing) comes highly recommended. All cabal members and non-members are urged to sign on and contribute.

The plan[edit]


  • Proposal: 8 bacon related articles.
  • Updated proposal: As many bacon related articles as possible


  • The articles should be worked up in sandboxes so they can all be debuted in one day's DYK listing.
  • Tentative date for debut Wednesday, May 27.
