Veggie Ipsum

@peopledesign has stepped in for our vegetarian designers. veggieipsum.com

Excellent!  I also love veggies.  Most people despise Brussels sprouts, but I quite enjoy them, either steamed or, of course, wrapped in bacon.

I love it… even more so since it’s on Stackoverflow.

Someone make this happen

@bysusanlin: I want to see someone use http://baconipsum.com and http://placekitten.com on the same mock-up. C’mon, who’s mocking something up now? 😀

A day full of bacon

Just want to thank y’all for stopping by the site! It hit the Twitters yesterday and it got kind of crazy.  Thank you to Sarah from @CrewDesign for making our bacony logo.

We added a few more meats based on your feedback:

biltong (I had to look this one up)
rump
jowl
salami
bresaola
meatloaf
swine

If you use some bacon ipsum in one of your designs and don’t mind sharing it, send it to me and we’ll feature it on the site.

PS: If you’re ever in Austin TX, stop by Lavaca Street Bar on a Thursday evening for their free bacon night.  Seriosuly, check this out!
