Nothing like a pic of pigs porking to start the week! This prolific performance of procreation is sure to produce some prime pork!
What’s up with those soliders just staring at them? Are they hungry or has it been that long since their last leave?

For those of you who have stuck around here for a while, you know of my love / not so much relationship with the folks at JD’s., makers of Bacon Salt, Baconnaise, MMMvelopes, and most recently bacon cola with Jones.
One one hand, I truly appreciate their inventiveness.
On the other, none of their products include any bacon (at all) and all their stuff kinda taste like yuck.
Well, they are at it again. This time with the creation of BaconAir.
Their “creation” story is pretty good, here’s an excerpt:
Hungry for bacon but don’t want the calories? Try BaconAir! Competing in a sporting event or spelling bee? Try BaconAir! Vacuuming the house? Try BaconAir! Taking a test? Try BaconAir! Driving a race car or semi-truck? Try BaconAir. If you want to run faster, jump higher, look and feel more attractive or memorize long sequences of numbers – try BaconAir!
Wanna see the rest? Pop over and read it. While you are there, if you are so moved, you can get your name on the waiting list. Retail is $8.99.

You can not unsee what you are about to see!
Feeling brave? Then see you after the jump…

Yes, that’s right…I am declaring this week at TDB World Headquarters “Bacon Grease Week” as we explore just some of the great things those dripping from our favorite meat can be used for!
Like this “gem” from 1942…
So join us the week as we journey into bacon grease!

So some inspiring young lads across the pond had an idea…
How can we get an entire English breakfast into a martini glass made of bacon?
The answer…behold the MEATINI
See how they came up with this mad creation at http://www.rathergood.com/meatini, if you DARE!!!Â Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!
Thanks to Rebecca F., TDB’s Bacon and Cultural Studies Correspondent for the heads up (SHOUT OUT).
That is all.Â Happy Monday everyone.

Anywho, the fine folks at Archie McPhee have done it again. There is nothing they won’t make taste like bacon!
From their site:
These red and white striped hard candies look just like the ones that grandma used to put in her fancy candy dish for the holidays. But, my oh my, would grandma be in for a surprise if she popped one in her mouth!
Oh my indeed.
$5.95 for a tin with about 12 pieces of candy.
