Is there a difference between Irish bacon and British bacon?

I don't know,
but I could swear I've spent hours
contemplating rashers of streaky bacon
just because the phrase is so...

I'm not a streaky bacon fan. Much prefer back bacon, where I can leave the rind/fat off.

Well, yes, when I ate meat
and wasn't allergic to pineapple,
I loved back bacon and pineapple pizza...

but "rashers of streaky bacon" has such a sound to it...
very mysterious to American ears...

rrrrrraSHerssss of stir-EEK-key bacon...

"When I knock you up in the morning, shall I bring a few rashers of streaky bacon?"
has got to be among the scariest questions an American ever hears in England.

Well, if you're going to have your eggs fertilised, you've got a have some bacon to go with them.

Bacon and pineapple go so well together. Especially on a pizza with sweetcorn.
