Being kind online is a great way to practice Bacon Behavior. See ourFugleflick about how to use the internet for good.
As we all know, Bacon is the meat that exceeds. So, students who exceed expectations for behavior in art class were said to have "Bacon Behavior".
All students who were caught showing Bacon Behavior were entered into a raffle to win their very own plush toy Bacon (he even says, "I'm Bacon" when squeezed!)

Now, go change the world with your messages of bacon and other compelling things (but what can beat bacon?)
