They’re muslims, not vampires, and that’s bacon, not garlic, you fascist dimwits. The porcine projectiles were lobbed by a man and woman associated with the Scottish Defence League, itself associated with far-right organization the English Defence League. Bacon belongs in frying pans and on plates, not mosque windows. They should give them a few extra months for wasting delicious foodstuffs.

Douglas Cruikshank, 39, and 18-year-old Chelsea Lambie threw bacon at the window of Edinburgh’s Central Mosque and wrapped the meat around door handles on January 31 last year.

Edinburgh Sheriff Court heard they and a third offender were associated with the Scottish Defence League, prosecutors said.

Wayne Stilwel, 25, from Gorebridge, Midlothian, previously admitted his involvement and was sentenced to 10 months in September.

Cruikshank, from Galashiels in the Borders, and Lambie, from Paisley, Renfrewshire, were convicted of threatening and abusive behaviour following a trial.

The trial heard that a man who was inside the mosque praying on the morning of the attack heard something hitting the prayer room window.

GMO Bacon on Its Way

Jill Ettinger writes at Food Democracy Now!:

With the near-certain approval by the FDA for Aqua Bounty’s genetically modified salmon, which would be the first GMO animal allowed in the U.S. food supply, the USDA has announced a $500,000 grant for research on developing genetically modifying pig genomes, reports Sustainable Food News.

The grant was issued by the USDA on the very same day that the FDA announced its latest findings on AquAdvantage—the Aqua Bounty, Inc salmon modified to contain genes from a Chinook and a pout fish so that it grows to maturity in half the time as conventional salmon.

Recombinetics, Inc, the recipient of the USDA funding says its genetic modification will be used to produce female sows and the development of a species that will be designed not to reach sexual maturity. In its grant proposal to the USDA, the company wrote, “Monosexing and infertility can be used to effectively control the dispersion of genetics from engineered animals, [which] will facilitate the introduction of engineered animals into the [food and biomedical] marketplace.”

And according to Sustainable Food News, several other of the USDA’s 11 grant recipients received funding for biotech work: “Another $500,000 grant was awarded to State University of New York, College of Environmental Sciences and Forestry, in Syracuse, N.Y., to evaluate environmental impacts of maturing transgenic American chestnut trees and their nut crop relative to chestnut trees produced by conventional breeding.”

North Carolina State University, in Raleigh, N.C., also received $500,000 to “research genomic approaches for Bt resistance risk assessment and improvement of regulatory triggers.”

Behold! The horror… the horror.

It’s a whole crocodile alligator wrapped in bacon with a chicken shoved in its mouth. There’s baked potatoes on the rack, too. Naturally. You can’t have cluckabacodile without taters.

UPDATE: Gattorritch says…

“This is actually me and some friends that cooked that for KING OF THE GRILL episode that aired on Discovery Channel and then Destination America. My cooker at a July 4th party in my neighborhood. We purchased the Gator in Southeast Texas, stuffed, and smoked on a Gator Pit smoker called the TEXAS RENEGADE. I can assure this is not Australia. It is the Great State of TEXAS, USA.”

Thanks, Gattoritch!

What Americans Have For Breakfast (Bacon, Egg and Gun)

Hey American disinfonauts, do you bring your gun to breakfast? From Marketwatch:
breakfast “As a European, this is how I imagine Americans have breakfast” That caption accompanied the Imgur image above, and it set off an entertaining firestorm across the Internet this week. Patriots gathered on Reddit, not so much to rail against stereotypes or to flip the script on Europeans, but rather to tackle some of the photo’s inaccuracies. Crewchief535 said “the eggs should be scrambled. Otherwise, spot on.” Dartpoolpointed out that “the coffee looks way too strong; it would be lighter.”...

Eating Bacon Lowers Men’s Sperm Count (So Eat Fish!)

Sorry gents, but if you want lots of healthy sperm, cut out the bacon and start eating fish. The Age reports:

Just one rasher of bacon a day can damage a man’s fertility, while eating a portion of white fish such as cod or halibut every other day can improve it, researchers have suggested.640px-NCI_bacon
The study by Harvard University on 156 men in couples suffering problems conceiving examined their diet and the size and shape of their sperm.

Researchers found that men who regularly ate processed meat had significantly lower amounts of normal sperm, compared with those who limited the amount of foods like bacon, sausages, hamburgers, ham and mince.
On average, those who ate the equivalent of less than a rasher of bacon a day had 30 per cent more normal sperm than those who ate higher quantities of processed meats.

Meanwhile, those who ate a portion of white fish every other day had a similar edge over those who ate foods such as cod more rarely.

Bacon, the American Eucharist

Picture: Dbenbenn (PD)

John Ozersky ponders the reasons for bacon’s stranglehold on American culture at Time:

Taste
Bacon does have a distinct, wonderful taste, as everyone knows. But you can’t really taste bacon when it’s inside of a double cheeseburger or wrapped lattice-like around a pound of sausage. For my money, you can’t even really taste it when it’s smoked with applewood, which is the bacon equivalent of near beer. But what you can taste is fat. Americans think they don’t like eating fat straight up; they cut the edges off pork chops, use “buttery spreads” instead of butter and go to restaurants that give you bad olive oil with your bread. Bacon is about the only form of straight fat eating that exists within the American mainstream. And fat is the active ingredient in everything good in any meat you can name. The lean muscle is just along for the ride.

Bacon Shown To Increase Cancer Risk By 19%

320px-NCI_baconYet another item to scratch off the menu (and the same goes for other processed meats, to perhaps no disinformation reader’s surprise). From the Press Association via The Guardian:

Eating two rashers of bacon a day can increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 19% and the risk goes up if a person eats more, experts have said.

Eating 50g of processed meat every day – the equivalent to one sausage or two rashers of bacon – increases the risk by 19%, compared to people who do not eat processed meat at all.

For people consuming double this amount of processed meat (100g), the increased risk jumps to 38%, and is 57% for those eating 150g a day. But experts cautioned that the overall risk of pancreatic cancer was relatively low – in the UK, the lifetime risk of developing the disease is one in 77 for men and one in 79 for women.
