Stop putting bacon on everything!

I occasionally catch cooking shows such as the ones on Food Network, and rarely browse/purchase magazines when I pass by them.  And one of the recent trends which I keep coming across is putting bacon (or its classy Italian sibling, prosciutto) on everything.  Everything!  On breads,on seafoods, on roasts, on fruits!  On watermelon, even.

I’m sure it tastes delicious.  It’s bacon, after all.  But it seems like cheating – practically anything would be delicious wrapped in bacon.  Even sticks and mud would taste good that way.  Shouldn’t attempts to get people to cook well involve more than wrapping their offerings in overpoweringly-esculent meat products?
