Behold the MEATINI…

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!!!  Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!

Thanks to Rebecca F., TDB’s Bacon and Cultural Studies Correspondent for the heads up (SHOUT OUT).

That is all.  Happy Monday everyone.

Suck On These…

Bacon candies!

What did you think I meant?  REALLY?!? That’s what you thought? Get your mind out of the gutter.

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.

$*&%# You Portland…

Seriously, I really hate you right now.

Michael…bacon boy, you say, why such disdain for this lovely City of Roses?  This is why!

JEALOUS!

I mean come on…look at that.  Who among us doesn’t want to eat that carton in one sitting RIGHT NOW!

If there are any FoTDB that can get their hands on a carton, I’d be very willing to pay for it and the cost of cold shipping to Michigan…just sayin’.
