Bacon may be a Western invention, but its effect on Filipinos is strong. What’s the best way to wake up in the morning than the smell of fresh coffee and the hypnotizing sight of deep-fried pork strips?

In strange news, an Amtrak train in Chicago crashed into a truck carrying 70,000 pounds of bacon.

The train, called Texas Eagle #22, was bound to Chicago from San Antonio. The train was blocking the tracks near  Route 53 and River Road, but it was not clear why.

There were 203 passengers in the train, but no one was injured. None of the train’s cars derailed.

But we wonder… what will happen to the 70,000 pounds of bacon?
