While this post has NOTHING to do with tasty strips of pork, it is still of great significance to moi.
You see, back the my day, I was a MEAN Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon player. I knew my Bacon forwards and back. Many an afternoon/evening was
wasted spent destroying my friends and colleagues with my knowledge of Mr. Footloose’s filmography.
Now the Google has gone and done what some claimed impossible. They’ve created a search algorithm that now instantly calculates any actor’s “Bacon Number”.
Just type their name followed by bacon number and BAM! Bacon number!
- Andy Warhol – bacon number of 2 (I know, surprised me too)
- Henry Winkler – bacon number of 1 (whaaaaaaat?!?)
- Zsa Zsa Gabor – bacon number of 2 (this is crazy!)
and so on, and so on, and so on.
Can Google be stumped?!? YOU BET IT CAN!
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Michael Baird’s (that’s me) Bacon Number!
Michael Baird had a non-speaking role in “Party of Five” in a scene with Scott Wolf (true story!)
Scott Wolf appeared with Jeff Bridges in “White Squall”
Jeff Bridges appeared with Kevin Bacon in “R.I.P.D.”
That’s a bacon number of 3! KA-POW!!!
