  1. The Bacon Coffin, For Those Who Love Bacon to Death

    In what may be an early April Fool's gag comes the ultimate bacon-related purchase: The bacon coffin. Sadly not made from actual bacon, this painted 18-gauge steel coffin comes from J&D's -- the makers of baconaise, bacon salt, and the legendary BaconAir. According to the founders of the company, which apparently consider themselves "Bacontrepreneurs," this is the perfect item for someone who loves bacon to death.

  2. The 14 Geekiest Beers the Free Market Has to Offer

    The history of beer is almost as old as human history, and it would be quite true to say that our love affair with the stuff has only grown with modern brewing practices. Given beer's pervasive place in human history, it's not surprising that the geeky pastimes of drinkers would eventually rub off on the beers themselves. The result is a veritable cornucopia of nerdy beers, from Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and a few others that fit in quite nicely with your nerdy lifestyle. Like Pizza Beer -- it's more efficient than eating both separately! So sit back, crack open a cold one, and enjoy this astounding and some times mouthwatering collection.

  3. Cramming Bacon Up Your Nose Can Stop Uncontrollable Nosebleeds

    So you've got a nosebleed; what are you going to do? Tilt your head back? Cram some tissues up that schnoz? How about stuffing the offending nostril with bacon? Yeah, sounds like a good idea, doesn't it? Surprisingly enough, it might be. A new medical study details the experiences of a 4-year-old child with Glanzmann's thrombasthenia who's life was saved, twice, by "[c]ured salted pork crafted as a nasal tampon and packed within the nasal vaults successfully stopped nasal hemorrhage promptly, effectively, and without sequelae." Yum.

  4. Skyrim Dragonborn Helmet Made Out Of Bacon

    Redditor Liktwo is an evil genius who realized that if he were to combine bacon and Skyrim no one could pass up the opportunity to talk about it (and give him scads of karma). He was right. Check it out. It's a Dragonborn helmet made out of bacon. That's about all there is to it yet somehow, it's still amazing in a simple, poetic sort of way. Liktwo guesses it's about enough bacon to feed 6-8 people, or one person who really, really likes bacon. I used to be an adventurer like you,  but then my cholesterol just went through the roof.

  5. Man Achieves Greatest Dream of a Generation: Deep Fried Baconnaise

    Having seen the amazing popularity that deep fried butter has enjoyed this past summer the proprietor of DudeFood decided that he could do one better. Instead of merely deep frying butter, he would deep fry bit-size morsals of bacon flavored mayonaise. Already somewhat familiar with the butter frying process, which involves frozen butter cubes, this genius of mankind let baconnaise freeze in his ice cube tray overnight. The next morning, he wrapped each piece in a wonton wrapper and deep fried them. The results may surprise you.

Making these beautiful pork flowers seems surprisingly easy, requiring only minor modification of a muffin tin, and some cheap plastic flower stems.

  8. BaconAir: The Greatest Invention of This or Any Century

    J&D's Foods, the amazing folks that brought you the much-lauded Baconsalt, have unleashed their latest bacon creation: BaconAir. According to their site, BaconAir came about after discussing the next logical step for bacon after Baconsalt. After all day brainstorming, the team hit on a key question:

    What if bacon was lighter than air? It was that last question that got the dialogue really going and led to another seemingly ridiculous question – what if bacon was air? After all, oxygen is the most important nutrient to the cells in your body, and plays an integral role in almost every bodily function. And bacon is the most delicious of meats.
    One thing lead to another, and BaconAir was born. The concoction is a "refreshing burst of bacon-flavored pure oxygen," and uses the extra-healthy 95% pure Himalayan oxygen. It is also fat and calorie free and, Kosher, and available now for pre-order. Surely, this will be imitated at shifty oxygen bars across America, but accept nothing but the original BaconAir. Now, there may those among you that do not share my passion for this delicious, aerosol product. Let me tell you a story:

  15. Flamethrowers, Vodka, and Bouquets: The 10 Most Creative Uses for Bacon

    Bacon: There are countless bacon tribute sites out there, and it's safe to say that the Internet is pretty much obsessed with the stuff. In an essay on the beloved greasy, fatty strips of pig meat, a writer at one such site, Bacon Unwrapped, explores the reasons why:
    There just aren't many foods that have the same emotional impact on people as bacon. For some people, it brings back fond memories of Sunday breakfast with their family. For others, it's taking pleasure in their favorite bacon cheeseburger for lunch. The most diligent bacon lovers save their bacon grease in a can in the refrigerator so they can enjoy the flavor of bacon even when they aren't eating it.
    After the jump, ten of the most creative uses for bacon we could find. Some take advantage of its high degree of inflammability (see: bacon bomb, bacon flamethrower), some worm its distinctive flavoring into strange and unexpected places (see: bacon vodka, bacon coffee), and some, well, took a certain kind of inspiration (a lampshade made of bacon?):
