IN PICTURES: The Glorious T-Shirts Of Baconfest Chicago 2013

In addition to four tons of bacon, about a billion star chefs and a huge ravenous horde of bacon-hungry Chicagoans, something else special could be found at Baconfest on Saturday. A group of bacontastic t-shirts like we'd never before seen adorned guests at the evening session of Baconfest 2013, and after commenting on about 10 people's garb, we had to start taking pictures.

Enjoy the gallery of wonderful, enthusiastic baconwear. If you google the slogans, many of these t-shirts are readily available online. Forgive any imperfect pictures — we felt strange asking people to stand still for more than one take while we stared at their chest.
