Bacon Tuxedo

Bacon TuxedoBacon must be the new black because it is absolutely everywhere these days. Bacon in a chocolate bar is a good example, although I’ve seen bacon ice cream and deep fried bacon out there pushing the limits of good health (and possibly good taste), as well. I’m not going to argue that bacon doesn’t taste good, but I am beginning to suspect that things are getting a little out of hand because of this Bacon-Scented Bacon Print Tuxedo I recently saw.

Words almost fail me when it comes to describing it, it’s just that strange. The suit is made of a bacon-print fabric and includes a matching bow-tie. It is chemically treated to smell like sizzling bacon, even (apparently) after having the suit dry cleaned.

Where would you wear something like this? I guess the idea is that the smell will tantalize your tastebuds and those of the people around you. Unfortunately, I can also foresee the possibility of developing a complete aversion to bacon if forced to smell it all day – especially if the smell of the tux turns out to rub off on other clothing in your closet…

    Wondering if this bacon tux could be considered animal cruelty if you wore it near too many dogs? LOL! I can see the headlines now…”Local man mauled while wearing bacon scented suit to local animal shelter!”

    Y’know… there’s a reason why that was a new product in April =)
