It used to be "when in doubt, move a pawn..." But in the chess game of life, lately it seems that bacon is the answer to everything (except when a better answer is "more cowbell.")
Yes, bacon can be repurposed as everything from fabric patterns to perfume, but that doesn't mean it will be any good as a fashion accessory. It could be that bacon is, and always will be, just an awesome and tasty slab of well cooked meat.
Just because something is nicely cured doesn't mean it can be the cure for everything.
Look beyond the bacon.
