Bacon in Real Life

November 24th, 2009
The old standard

The old standard

It’s been several years since the internet first saw the old “Push Button, Receive Bacon” joke, poking fun at the quirky art style employed by the manufacturers of those hand-drying blower machines.  Since then, the symbolic bacon around is in every day life has become more noticeable.

Basically anything involving squiggly lines, red colors, or a wavy shape can be interpreted as bacon, and this is a good thing.  People need to know Bacon is around them at all times.  It is encouraging to us, it makes us feel good about ourselves, and it makes us feel like we are never too far from that next slice of salty, fried pork flavor.

Bacon - slippery when wet

See if you can find bacon in every day life.  Not pieces of actual bacon, mind you, but symbolic bacon.  Here’s a great example of some bacon-interpreted art.  “Hold up there, son! Don’t slip on the bacon!”

Candied Bacon Ice Cream

November 23rd, 2009

BaconIceCreamSugar, dairy, and prok.  As demonstrated by a guy named David Lebovitz, Bacon ice cream isn’t such a strange idea.  He’s developed a salty, savory, recipe for candied bacon ice cream and it looks like heaven on a plate.

We like the idea of combining Bacon with traditional desserts.  Bacon has long been confined to the realm of breakfast foods and burger toppings, when it deserves recognition across all areas of culinary classification.

After all, not everyone wants to be stuck with the same, bland mint chocolate chip ice cream every night for dessert, or boring old yellow cake with chocolate frosting on their birthdays.  Spice it all up.  Throw in some bacon.

Bacon Band-aids

November 16th, 2009

bacon-band-aidsWe [bacon enthusiasts] all knew it was possible, and now someone has finally proven the hypothesis: Bacon heals.

Some genius out there has finally developed bacon band-aids.  It has been a long-time tradition to use raw meat to heal facial wounds (think Andy Griffith), so it was only a matter of time before someone came up with the bacon-aid.  I can honestly say that knowing I can look down at any moment and see a perfectly-marbled piece of sliced pork eye-candy would ease the pain of just about any wound nature can throw at me.

Heal yourself, improve your smell, and when your wound is all patched up, treat yourself to a tasty, meaty treat.

Mmmmm… Bacon-aid!

iPhone Bacon Case

So, let’s be realistic here… if you think of yourself as tech-savvy, popular, important, fun-loving, or human, chances are you have an iPhone.  Now, this is not necessarily to say that the iPhone is great, or even good, but it’s definitely not an arguable point that the iphone is popular.

One of the main problems with these modern smartphones is protecting the screen – and the iPhone is no exception.  With it’s large sensitive touch-screen, the iPhone is exceptionally vulnerable to being damaged by keys or other objects in your pocket, or by being dropped.  Seeing the obvious need, many companies jumped in and began producing protective cases for smartphones.  You can get cases that look like all sorts of things, including Hello Kitty or Barak Obama, but one stands above the rest – the Bacon Case.

Yep, that’s right – there’s a bacon-themed iPhone case, and we love it.  What better way can you show your love for bacon while toting around your favorite piece of technology?  And who would disagree that a salty, hickory-smoked flavor makes even the greatest iPhone app more enjoyable?  Certainly not us!

Are you reading this on an iPhone?  Do you have a bacon case for you iPhone?  If either are true, leave us a comment!
