So I woke up this morning to by far the most interesting media release I have ever received. It seems the boys at J & D’s Foods are at it again. The bacon-loving loons have created something never seen before in funeral-wear: the bacon coffin.
I met Justin of “Justin and Dave” a few years ago at the Fancy Food Show in New York City when he handed me a tube of bacon lip balm and introduced me to their line of bacon crazy products. From Bacon Salt, to Bacon Pop to Bacon Air, these two gents believe strongly that everything (indeed EVERYTHING) should be better with bacon. Last year they launched “bacon lube” which brings new meaning to the term “pork.”
I digress. This release caught my eye because the tagline they are using is “For Those Who Love Bacon to Death.” Wow. Just wow.
Evidently the Bacon Coffin is available starting today online at www.baconcoffins.com for $2999.95 plus shipping and handling. The coffin is painted to look “bacon wrapped” and has gold detailed handles.
I admit, I am fairly fascinated by this concept. Is it real? They say it is. Of course these men released a spoof press release a few years ago about bacon baby formula and it got picked up by some national news networks. So I am not 100% convinced this is indeed real.
Nonetheless, I can’t look away. It is a bacon-covered train wreck in my mind.
I do love bacon, I am not certain however that I want to be covered in it upon my death. However, I am still willing to contemplate this idea some more.
