A "bacon critic" is an actual job and it could be yours

Do you like eating bacon? Do you have strong feelings about what makes good bacon good and what makes bad bacon bad? If you answered, "yes" to those questions - here's your chance to cash in on your passion. Extra Crispy, a new website dedicated to all things breakfast, is hiring an official Bacon Critic to write about, well, bacon.

According to a posting on the Extra Crispy site, the job, which is a paid three-month position, requires "serious writing chops, an unmistakable voice, a sense of adventure, and an insatiable hunger -- for bacon." The Bacon Critic can live anywhere in the United States, but "needs to be opinionated and thorough in his or her research, and will be expected to eventually decide which bacon is the best in the country."

Whoever is offered the job, will have their work cut out for them since bacon can be found in everything from alcoholic drinks to deserts. There are even entire festivals devoted to bacon.

If you're interested, send a short essay of fewer than 600 words recounting your favorite bacon-related memory to bacon@extracrispy.com by June 24, 2016.
