    Sarcasm doesn't come across well on the internet, does it?

    Sarcasm: It BEATS killing people.
    Up to the mind (or absence of) the reader.

    There's nothing wrong with sarcasm, but there's no need to be so rude to a stranger.

    Stop talking about yourself (it's immature).
    Nobody is putting a gun to your head to speak to me (your problem if so).
    Not my fault you don't have sense of humor (or any sense for that matter).

    That's relative and only YOUR (biased) Opinion.
    Also MUTUAL. At least I know what Bad Psychology looks like.
    Good Riddance.

    Getting married and having some bacon-fed spoiled brats is what most folk do instead..
    Feed the sow likewise, be sure to bring home plenty of bacon to keep them contented or you may end up incontinent yourself.

    Thank you for being polite, Mom taught me not to speak while such.

    Use it to grease palms instead. May be useful for lonely chaps too,
    they know what the "Sound of One Hand Clapping" is.

    Even bacon is better than the worthless fiat currency we now use which they will keep printing until it has the same worth as toilet paper.

    The Hungarian Pengo fell 21 DECIMAL PLACES

    I was stuck between Yes and No, so I looked at pros and cons.
    CONS:
    - After years of using bacon as currency, many pigs will become battery farmed and mistreated.
    - Pigs may become extinct.
    - Humans may become extinct due to heart disease of eating all the money.

    PROS:
    - Bacon is amazing
    - Bacon is amazing
    - Bacon is amazing
    - I bet Barney Stinson eats bacon...

    why not ! we should switch over to the "bacon standard as a strip of bacon holds its value better than the US dollar ...no matter how much the US government spends bacon will not be 20% less delicious

    I dont like bacon. The only reason people would even consider doing it is for publicity. That guy looks like he's about ready to have a stroke from having eaten too much of the fatty crud as it is, the porker.

    Maybe the 'Canadian back bacon' used in McMuffins could become the new dollar coin,
    can be divided like 'Pieces of Eight' of Yore to make small change.
