The Real Bacon

Don't you just love Bacon?  I have to admit I do love bacon and I do rarely indulge but now that they are making so many different bacon related products- I can get my fix with out actually eating it.  Also my hubs has this odd fascination with collecting items for his office that are bacon related.  Is it just me or is bacon everywhere?
1.  Wake N Bacon- an alarm clock the cooks Bacon and wakes you up.
2.  Super cute Bacon earrings by FayDangles
3.  Bacon Floss.  So you don't have to eat it for breakfast- you can just have that taste after you brush your teeth.
4.  Bacon Bandaid- gross. and there is a free toy inside!
The ever amazing artist Francis Bacon whom is known for his pretty dark, edgy and raw portraits.  I remember seeing one of his paintings when I was at the Vatican last year and I was surprised that they had one of his paintings up and of a pope because he was quite controversial in his time.  Are you paying attention? :) Just checking. I think one of the interesting stories about Bacon was when he was a child he was locked in cupboard by a nanny and he would cry and scream.  When he grew up and had a art studio- he wanted a small cramped studio and he called it the cupboard and he said, "It was the making of me."
 I love having a sneak peak into the artist studio. Showing the madness.  You don't think I would forget the other famous Bacon.  The center of the Bacon Theory- and shirtless :)
What's your favorite bacon?

Bacon really IS everywhere! Even when I wasn't a vegetarian, I never liked bacon. The only bacon for me is Kevin Bacon. <3

Haha, I was a vegetarian for yearssss, and one day I said to myself...I want some bacon. And I did. I don't regret it either ;) Bacon really is everywhere though!

Those bacon band aids are awesome. I love Francis Bacon and of course Mr. Kevin Bacon is amazing. Did you know they are making another Footloose movie? It won't be the same I'm afraid.

I love bacon even if I don't eat it on a regular basis. I read an article a few months ago about how bacon's the #1 favorite food- they even featured bacon chap sticks and perfumes!

SaffaKate said...

OH BACON! I love it. That alarm clock is absolutly HILARIOUS. Thanks for sharing the quirky baconess!

Danielle said...

oh my goodness, i love bacon! i don't think i could ever be a vegetarian just for the reason that i couldn't eat bacon. it's too yummy to pass up! i always get a kick out of the new bacon themed items they are coming out with. i love the wake n bacon - how nice would it be to wake up to bacon cooking every morning? YUM!

Oh bacon. Before I became a vegetarian, I LOVED bacon. It's the only meat I miss. How strange would it be, though, to walk around with a bacon band-aid on?

Leslie *Fresh Out of Lemons* said...

Haha, this is funny timing because my husband and I had friends over for dinner last night, and we all had a long conversation about bacon. Specifically turkey bacon. My friend claims that Trader Joe's turkey bacon is the best you'll ever eat!

Gloria said...

I'm totally on Team Bacon - that alarm clock is hilarious!!

I saw some Bacon flavored vodka the other day which intrigued me--bet it would taste good with Bloody Mary's :)

Those bacon band aids are just too much!

stephanie said...

Mmmm...bacon. I love the stuff. My favorite non-food bacon is Jason Statham's character from Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. :)

don't know if i could sleep next to raw bacon all night...

RicAdeMus said...

I had no idea bacon had permeated our culture so--I really like the commercial that has Kevin Bacon posing as a Kevin Bacon fan. It's cute.

About estate sales, we haven't had any good finds lately either, only pricey ones. =)

stace said...

haha! love it!

Marjorie Rose said...

ha! this is so kitschy! I love em all, even the bacon floss!

Now in real life, I can hardly eat the real thing nowadays since I've replaced it with turkey bacon. I'm a traitor..

Jamie Rose said...

Oh my! This reminds me of a gag gift I got last Christmas. It was a bacon box. It had bacon soda, bacon chapstick, bacon gravy, and a bacon air freshener. There are so many strange bacon-related items!

Selena said...

Well...I don't eat meat so , my favorite bacon is Kevin!
(I can't think a bacon-earrings!!)

punkychewster said...

this is non-bacon related but YOUR POOCHIES look too CUTE!!! my dogs give me that same look when they realize i'm trying to sneak a bite.

Nikki said...

I wish when I thought of Bacon I thought of Footloose, but instead I want the real thing ;)
