# Proof that Salad Cancels Out Bacon

200The rumors you’ve been hearing. They’re true.

Salad cancels out bacon.

Let me explain.

## The Salad-Cancels-Out-Bacon Rule

This logic is derived from a spectrum of proven theories, derived as follows, in a highly scien-matical, derive-atory way:

1. First, we establish that the

is the same, that is:ratio of bacon to salad

bacon:salad = trueWe can now proceed in applying the laws of cross-multiplication.

2. In particular, we make use of the cross-cancellation laws, such that:

bacon/salad * salad/bacon = 1

3. Because we slash-ed-ed both the

andbaconfactors like they’re imaginary, we’re obligated to multiply our remainder bysalad(the infamous “imaginary number”). Like this:i

1 * i

4. And

, being imaginary and all, stands for nothing tangible, therefore:i

i =0carried through as1 * 0

5. As everyone knows, anything multiplied by zero = 0 therefore expressed as,

or1 * i= 01 * 0 = 0

6. To conclude and prove that

salad cancels out bacon

hahaha…so funny…a very innovative use of maths 😉

thanks. i figure it’s about as logical as algebra 😉

lol

hilarious! i love bacon too.

it would be awesome if you could follow my blog!! here’s the link –> http://thislovelylittleworld.wordpress.com/

Don’t feel guilty about eating bacon again….just remember to cancel it out with salad!

Haha–I hate math but love bacon and I have a thick applewood smoked batch that I’ll be cooking up this morning!

ohhhh I think i can smell it from here! 😉

Quite clever!

& while salad, does indeed cancel out bacon, as shown by your practical use of magic (I mean math), Bacon also does not have any carbs. While salad, on the contrary, does. 😉

guess I’ll hafta prove that the bacon cancels out the salad too! 😉

so eating a bacon salad is like a freebie! awesome. LoL very clever. and i wish i could remember that much of my AP calc class. 😛

yep. don’t worry, all you need to remember from math is salad cancels out bacon 😉

i am obsessed with bacon it is the perfect food. love your blog, beth

aw, thanks so much! and yes, it’s pretty supertastical.

I couldn’t help but laugh at this 🙂

glad to hear it. we all can use more laughter and bacon!

The math seems to pass the muster. Now pass the bacon!

ooops. i would except… the bacon has been cancelled out! 😉

Hmmmmm…..not 100% sure this is true, but very creative!

i mean… it might have been a little bit of a stretch…

Nice one! I will definetly be sharing!

awesome. thanks 🙂

Completely nonsensical, but I laughed my ass off anyway. Now I’m off to have bacon on a veggie burger.

thanks 🙂 those are some high compliments.

I have to say this: I don’t understand why bacon is so popular. I personally think it’s overrated. I improved a bit my vision of it when I moved in Ireland and found in Tesco the slices of bacon, made of meat, without the white stripes of fat (in Italy you find only that version). But still, if I have really to choose a part of the pig, I prefer the ham. Blasfemy for you, uh?

i would say blasphemy…except I was, at one time, a bacon-hater.

Obviously, I have since reformed. but I still cannot explain the bacon phenomenon. 🙂

Anyway salad over bacon, of course.

this is amazing. haha. Love it!

thanks 🙂

Lol

My Kind of Math! my son would love this. just this past saturday at Sam’s I told him that the big tub of Cheese Balls and Carrot Juice we were trying to purchase had cancelled out my Sam’s card which mysteriously stopped working 24hours after we’d just used it with no problem.

ha. this sounds like you shoulda got bacon instead! 😉

I never thought I would love math this much but thank you Math for clearing that up.

You are hilarious! Love this so much.

hee hee, thanks! 🙂

Hey, love the marvellous mathematics here. Bacon, essentially, is the key to all our problems in life and I think if we did a lot less arguing and a lot more bacon eating, we’d be a happier species. I’m a shameless self promoter here but I legitimately think you’d enjoy reading this, it relates to your topic

Please, take a look!

i think you are right!

i’ll check out your post, thanks! 🙂

WOW…just when I thought I was the strangest blogger 😉 And then I come upon you and the Meaning of Bacon. Thanks for giving me hope with your clever musings!!

haha, well if you want to compete for strangest blogger, I will concede. 😉

Thanks for reading!

The best thing on the internet I’ve found this year.

Probably the most legit use of math yet. I won’t be surprised when they start teaching this rule in schools everywhere.

it would make school worth attending, wouldn’t it? 😉

They’d at least graduate with some useful knowledge.

hahaha… Awesome. Love your bacon blog!

yay! glad to hear it! 🙂

Your blog may actually make me like math for the first time ever!

oh i’m very sorry to hear that

(says the English major)

😉

I’m stumped LOL

haha, oops. sorry!

As a pork lover, I am greatly pleased to read that salad cancels out bacon! 365daysofbacon is a new MUST read for any bacon/pork lover!

Woaa! What a concept. You might be a mathematician.. 🙂

haha, i have been called many things. but mathematician is a new one. i’ll take it! 😉

my pleasure lady… 🙂

I suck at math. This flew over

I kinda liked your post. Keep it up

haha, well then … i will kinda take that as a compliment. thanks! 🙂

ahahahahahahahahahahaha first time I see your blog and laughed my ass off! Plus, I leave with a new way of explaining maths to my kids when I have them 😛

glad to hear it 🙂

Thanks Katie! 🙂

[…] 6. 365 Days of Bacon […]

you r reasoning is flawless, I would like give you a nominations to this Liebster award if you choose to accept it http://nuriandnerdpower.wordpress.com/2013/03/27/this-liebster-award/

Awesome blog! I love ur reasoning, it makes so much sense.

thanks 🙂 i try hee hee

Nice practical application of an otherwise abstruse theory. I little suspect but the thought of bacon is a nice distraction. Wait until this turns up in pre-calc books in our schools. Someday you’ll be famous.

i’d like to think all that time in math class was not wasted (on me or future generations…)

Wow, now this is what I call mind-blowing hahaha

sounds like more bacon for you! 😉

It’s gonna be the only thing on my diet as soon as I get back to the states hahaha

You are a true American. 😉

You’ve convinced me! The only time salad wouldn’t cancel out bacon would be when the bacon is served ON the salad. And then it’s not a case of 1 + 0 = 1; it’s a case of 1 + 1 = YUM!

hah, i like it and yes it is!

You had me at bacon.

A blog on bacon? I’m in heaven 🙂

glad to elevate you! 😉
