Famous movie quotes are better with bacon.
The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival comes to town on October 18, bringing with it an amazing assortment of films for nearly an entire month. There's prestige in this festival, many of the films will be making their US or world premiers right here in South Florida.

In other words, it's a really big deal.

But we can't help but be jealous of a recent film festival held in New York last week. The International Bacon Film Festival, sponsored by celebrated this pig candy by showcasing 11 films, each produced as part of a call to action by Hormel Black Label Bacon in the search for the best bacon-relatated film.

The result? A bunch of creative, zany, and heartfelt shorts, each paying homage to bacon.

Oscar Mayer Wants You to "Say it With Bacon" (Video)

Bacon: Better than diamonds.
What's the best way to show someone you love them with all your heart? If you watch television, then you know the ultimate way to start a lifetime commitment is by buying a precious object using the four C's rule -- cut, consistency, color, and cure.

Cure? Of course! We're talking about bacon here, son -- not some expensive rock!

Oscar Mayer has just come up with the best campaign ever in which they mock every diamond ad by comparing it to bacon. And, let's face it. While you can only look at a diamond, it doesn't taste good at all.

But bacon. That's a gift worth giving.

Watch that bacon!
Here's something to absolutely make your Friday complete! Not only is it the last day of the workweek... not only is St. Patrick's Day this weekend... but it's time for Baconalia!

That's right, folks! Denny's is celebrating everyone's favorite taste treat -- bacon -- in its annual wild and porky feeding frenzy!

This year's Baconalia menu is even more decadent (and dare-worthy) than last year's and includes caramel- and bacon-stuffed French toast; BBQ bacon mac 'n cheese bites; a salted caramel and bacon brownie sundae; and a maple bacon milk shake in addition to the usual bacon slams, burgers, and BLTs.

BaconFest Florida: The Eight Best Bacon Foods We Ate

1Bacon Fest (Coconut Creek Casino 2_23_2013)_by Ian Witlen-7540.jpg

Turkey on whole-wheat bread is so passé nowadays. What the public really wants is bacon.

Juicy, greasy slabs of cured pork belly, by the pounds; in as many preparations as possible and dipped in and/or wrapped around as many highly caloric food items-- such as chocolate and chicken wings,--imaginable. That is the central idea behind BaconFest, a hedonistic, triglyceride inducing, throw-the-weight-scale-aside, hog-lovers event that took Chicago and New York by storm and then moved towards us. On Saturday night, South Florida had its share of this beastly bacon affair.

A sellout for several weeks, this pig pantheon was a resounding success at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek. South Florida evidently loves its swine just about as much as the rest of the country.

Chef Todd Fisher, from Discovery's Destination America network show, United States of Bacon, hosted what we called our own pork-a-palooza. The lines were long and the bellies were bursting all night long as the packed crowd sampled bacon-inspired items from local eateries like Big City Tavern and Caffe Luna Rosa and savored bacon infused delights from La Marquise Desserts and Susy Pops.

We loaded up on Lipitor, braved the hungered mega-carnivorous masses and prepared to pig out (pun all the way) on all the creative offerings incorporating the other white meat.

Bacon in a basket, free for Friday's bacon happy hour at Gypsy's Horse Irish Pub.
Nothing beats bacon. And we're pretty sure that means nothing beats a bacon happy hour, either.

It seems the staff at The Gypsy's Horse Irish Pub in Wellington think so, too. After all, they're claiming to be the first and only establishment in the Broward or Palm Beach County area to implement a free "bacon happy hour."

We'd eat food off that body.
Some lucky bastard got to eat a piece of Iberico ham off of Padma Lakshmi's body last evening.

No, it's not some lame Top Chef dream sequence. This really happened. In front of thousands of people. And that man was some stranger. OK -- he did donate $1,000 to charity, so we guess it's all good.

According to the Washington Post, the meat-eating occurred at the annual Capital Food Fight, a food & wine event benefiting DC Central Kitchen.
