Automatic Bakish Bacons

by Terry Ross

I have searched several online wordlists for words that when translated into Bakish contain a "bacon" according to the methods I analyzed in The Code that Failed. By Penn Leary's reasoning, every occurrence of any of these words in any text should be considered one of Francis Bacon's signatures. The following list of 716 magic words, though tiresomely long, is obviously incomplete. For instance, the list contains "birdwatch" but not "birdwatcher" or "birdwatching." I'm sure that searching an unabridged dictionary would produce a much larger list, but this one will have to do for the time being. If you like wordgames, you might try to see how many of these words you can string together in a phrase that makes some kind of crazy superficial sense (while all the time in cipher it chants, "bacon bacon bacon"). Here's one to get you started: "unobtrusively amateurish jerkwater welterweight."
