We made a conscious decision about a year ago that this site would be dedicated to all the best news about bacon and not about people named bacon. With the exception of a couple of relevant stories about actor Kevin Bacon, we have held true to that decision. 

Finally, though, we have found a topical story about the famous Sir Francis Bacon. Glasstire’s Roy Neinast had a serious eureka moment while he was looking for a unique angle on the whole swine flu thing.

Granted, it doesn’t really represent the visual art of the Great State of Texas, but it sure is creative, and we support that.

Very clever, and very creative. There are a bunch of these comparisons at Glasstire. Check them out for yourself.
