There's a new race coming to Chicago this summer: The Bacon Chase It's a race dedicated to... oh, you guessed it already: bacon. There's UNLIMITED bacon along the course and UNLIMITED bacon at the finish line. And a Bloody Mary. Sounds pretty sweet - obviously not healthy at all since a 5K only burns about 300 calories but still, sounds good. But the part where satire becomes reality is that along with the 5K course there is also a .05K course. For real. .05K. That you sign up for, officially. That's pretty funny. Except that The Onion invented the .05K two years ago to make fun of Paula Deen . And now fake news creates real events. Excerpt from The Onion: "This .05K walk may be one heck of a challenge, but it's for such a good cause I'm darn sure gonna finish it." I can just imagine people saying that on the morning of June 7th in Montrose Harbor. I'll probably hear them say it. Because I'll be there. Eating ALL THE BACONS.
