Apparently You CAN'T Eat 44 strips of Bacon in one sitting!!!!


For those of you who are new to my blog (Hi & Welcome!!), you might not know that I work in a small business office with 5 men. I'm the only girl. Working with only men definitely has it's ups & downs & totallly weird times. This past Friday night was one of them. hehe.

So one day at work I was staring off into space & was listening to the two other boys who sit near me chit-chatting. They were talking about movie popcorn. I opened my big mouth because I remembered a strange fact I once had heard:

"Oh guys! Just to let you know I heard somewhere that eating a huge tub of popcorn is the same as eating 44 strips of Bacon."

With that sentence, the bacon challenge began. One of my fellow employees then said,

"I could eat 44 strips of bacon in one sitting."

Only in an almost all-men office would they construct a Bacon Eating Challenge night. lol. We decided to do this on last Friday so we all met at my boss's house after work. We psyched up the kid who was going to eat the bacon. He didn't eat all day so he'd have an appetite, watched commercials for bacon, & talked about how much he loved it. The bacon was bought, the beer, the chips, & of course the anti-acids.

Never in my job-life would I think I would watch my bosses make bacon or have a work-function that was dependent on eating bacon. 44 strips of bacon to be exact. I, at first, wasn't going to post pictures but I realized NO ONE would believe me if I didn't. The faces are cut out to protect the innocent Bacon-Eaters.


Thats the cooking of the bacon process. Then the eating commenced.


This is my fellow co-worker who stated that he could eat all 44 strips starting off slow.


Unfortunately, he only could eat 29.5 strips of bacon.

I don't know why we didn't bet any money on this. I thought he could do it. He said that his stomach just stopped. I love bacon but honestly I think after about 10 pieces I would have to stop. Oh boy. It was so much fun tho watching this. It was a bit of bonding process for all of us too. There's only 6 of us so it would really suck if we all didn't like each other. I need a new job desperately but for now I had to laugh along with them. 44 strips of bacon??? Yeah in your dreams. hehe.

How many strips of bacon do you think you could eat in one sitting?? Also have you ever done any crazy challenges like this??
I'd love to know.

I thought it would be a good way to start of the week to do a funny post. hehe. I actually got a coupon in the mail today for a certain controversial item from Victoria Secret too. Yes, this week I will know the dreaded question. "Does one size fit all". Stay tuned, its going to be an interesting week.

angel6033 said...

wow 44 strips of bacon? I dont thinkso I think I would stop at around 6. I think it just gets gross lol. At least he tried poor thing lol...

Susan said...

haha this is very funny! almost 30 pieces is pretty good going :D

OceanDreams said...

I really want some bacon now, seriously. It looks so good and that is so funny that they had a contest. Hmm, I would say I could at least eat 10 pieces, it might be dangerous.

Alicia said...

UGHHHHHHH my stomach hurts just thinking about it!!! there's no way i could do it, but i commend him for trying! 29 pieces is A LOT of friggin bacon!

Orphaned Apparel said...

I believe this is the first time I've come across your blog, and it sure lives up to the randomness promised in the title. lol.

God, I think 10 would probably be my maximum too, at the most. Thinking about it more, I'm doubting even that much.

Elizabeth Marie said...

Um, this post just about killed me :) No bacon...or turkey bacon for me...and vegan bacon is FOUL, just fyi. lol

Secretia said...

Unlimited pieces of bacon, if I wanted to raise mycholesterol some more, and have to wear stretchpants to work to cover my belly.

So you bought a new "toy?"

That sounds painful and I can't even imagine the fat intake!

Little Ms Blogger said...

He couldn't do it? I'm surprised. If cooked properly, bacon shrinks down to almost nothing.

I love bacon and wonder how much I could eat. However, I'd probably make it into a sandwich with lettuce and mayo - not just straight bacon (probably because I've never just eaten straight bacon).

I'm now intrigued to find out how much I can eat.

Hey, did he get sick?

Melanie's Randomness said...

He claims he was okay by Saturday morning, BUT he was a lil green after he did it. He sat on the couch afterwards & didn't move for a while. =P

woodlandsblonde said...

Hahhhaha. YUCK! I think maybe the most I could eat is 10...then after that it'd just be gross. I do love a couple strips of bacon though!

Fun post :) I haven't done any contests like these...me & my HH crew (I think) are going to start having theme parties :)

Sugar Whiting said...

eww that's alot of bacon..
love it!
Oh and vic's secret huh? hmmmm wonder what that could be?

The Style Mansion said...

Bacon overload man, give me popcorn anytime. This post is so funny. You lot sound crazy!

Susan R. Mills said...

Okay, I couldn't eat more than 10 pieces, but I could eat a tub of popcorn. Aye! Is it really like eating 44 pieces of bacon?

Katy Mary said...

I would definitely get sick, my stomache doesn't like greasy things as much as I would like it too. I could probably eat 5 tops, I stick to turkey bacon, maybe I could eat more of that!

Iva said...

omg that's a whole lot of bacon!!

Heather Taylor said...

Eating contests are definitely not for me. I eat really, really slowly so there is no way I could make a sizable dent on the bacon eating challenge. I would say at best I could do five pieces and that is at my best.

Bathwater said...

Man my kids can eat the bacon! I buy the pre-cooked buy the box load and on the weekends it is not unusually for the tree of them to go through 4 boxes.

But enough about the bacon and back to the question we all really want to know ;). And really this is to important a decision for just one persons opinion-- in my opinion :p

Kris said...

that is gross and hilarious!!!!

Giovanna said...

hahahah, boys are so silly. i could probably eat about 11 or 12, but i'd feel like sh*t afterwards.

A Perfect Peach said...

that's a lot of bacon, sister! I love it, but not sure I could get near a whole package!

P said...

Ugh. I ate a bacon sandwich a few weeks ago with about three strips of bacon in it, and it was WAY too salty.

Funnily enough, I am the only girl in a team of five guys too, so I know exactly what it's like!

Leigh said...

AAHAH That is hilarious!! I love how little challenges can get started by a simple conversation :)

Pink Flower said...

mmmm bacon sarnie - super yum!

drollgirl said...

44 strips of bacon! that could induce a heart attack! sodium city!!!

i once ate a HORRENDOUS amount of bacon. i don't even want to admit how much. and it tasted so great at first, and then i felt AWFUL. too much fat and sugar and sodium. that being said, i could "comfortably" still eat a good 5-10 slices! ha hahahah

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

that is seriously hilarious. your office sounds like so much fun!

Jay Ferris said...

I've eaten 24 pieces at one sitting before (yes, on a dare), and felt pretty damn good about it afterward. I have no doubts I could make it to 50+.

As for your defeated co-worker, he should still be commended for the effort. Maybe a pair of panties with bacon all over them would be appropriate?

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Okay, so when I first saw your blog post title, I thought you attempted to eat 44 strips of bacon in one sitting and I was absolutely HORRIFIED. LOL!!

What a fun night. :) That's really cool you get along so well with your coworkers and you get to do silly things like this. That's pretty awesome!

PS. I gave you an award on my blog. :)

StuddedLilly said...

haha this is such a funny post! i love bacon but i think it would get real greasy after 10 strips lol

xo

Gaia said...

44? are you kidding?

Not even 5... I love bacon but I can't!

What a friday ...

thanks for your comment!

Sophia said...

HAHAHA 44 strips of bacon. Hmm... I could probably eat 15 or maybe a bit more as long as I'm eating it along with other foods. This sounded like a fun night! :)

All I can say is "boys will be boys". I don't think they ever really grow up.
And I think that's a good thing. Mine certainly hasn't. LOL

Tracy said...

Haha! This is too funny and the first time I have read your blog. I read about this really cool alarm clock once that wakes a person up with the smell of bacon. Has he a birthday coming up soon?

Reaper said...

yeah i could have put all 44 on a sandwich with onion and tomoto... yum yum

Amber said...

I love this! And I'm pretty sure that I would have been able to do it. In fact, I'm going to see if I can't challenge my boyfriend to a little bacon-off. I will, of course, report back with the results.

MJ said...

I couldn't do it. I hate bacon! I reckon I could eat 44 raw mushrooms - my favourite food!

Heather Rose said...

This is hilarious. How many strips of bacon? Zero for this veggie. I'd probably die a horrible death due to stomach revolt if I ate ONE. I haven't eaten meat in over 13 years. My tummy won't do that anymore. :P

Thanks for always commenting. It really does mean the world to me.

LaLa said...

Haha, came over from Le Love blog. Bacon is one of my fave foods, but never would I attempt to eat that much. I bet he couldn't look at bacon for weeks after that experiment. Interesting and cool people you work with!
