Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. More bacon. Less bowl. Oh, god - there are so many applications! Salad in bacon (pictured), but can you imagine a bacon burrito bowl? Forget the tortilla! Grits in a bacon bowl! Poached egg in a bacon bowl!
I would stop short at cereal. Barely.
Available only in Germany, some guy at The AV Club (which is somehow affiliated with The Onion) managed to actually get his hands on one through Ebay. Let’s just say that what was inside was a bit less appetizing than what was advertised (disclaimer: the pictures and video on the link are not for the faint of heart).
Reactions from those who actually sampled this product:
- ”Oh, auuugh. It’s awful. Have these people ever had hamburger before?”
- “Boy, that taste really stays in your mouth, doesn’t it?”
- “That was so bad.”
- A. “I think it’s more the soggy bun than the meat.” B. “No, it really is the meat that’s the problem. Oh God.”
- A. “When I first tasted it, it didn’t bother me, but it festered.” B. “Really? I gagged the second it hit my tongue.”
I hadn’t ever heard of Tom Otterness until I was informed about his NYC subway installation in the 14st / 8 Ave station. Sure enough, there are dozens of bronze statues down there that are simultaneously cute and creepy.
This piece, which I found on his website, stunningly captures the destructive and bloated nature of the US Consumer cycle. I was informed that I could have a copy (9 were made) for only [price redacted].
Anyway, I will be attending a tour of his studio on Sunday, March 16th
at 3:00pm, sponsored by openhousenewyork (thanks Meg).

Consumerist.com ran a story about an impending crash in the auto loan industry. I forwarded the article to my good friend who’s family owns several auto dealerships in the Midwest, thinking he might be interested in the article.
His response: “I’ma tell [dad] to get one of those gorrillas”

Dethroner.com testimonial: “A few years back Carolyn and I decided to look for the “Greatest Mac and Cheese recipe of all time.” While I’m not sure this White House Kitchen recipe is the one, it was good enough that we stopped looking!”
I still believe the United States has a responsibility to restore liberty and standards-of-living to - at the least - the levels Iraqis enjoyed under Saddam’s rule. However, there is a very dark possibility that our emmisaries are contributing to the crimes against humanity, rather than fighting to end them.
Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda of Japan voiced anger on Tuesday over accusations that a United States marine had raped a 14-year-old girl in Okinawa, calling the episode “unforgivable.”
In 1995, three American marines gang-raped a 12-year-old girl in Okinawa, setting off large protests there.
Officials in Okinawa, a set of subtropical islands hundreds of miles from the main Japanese islands and an independent kingdom until the 19th century, have long complained that the prefecture is host to most of the more than 40,000 United States soldiers stationed in Japan.
I challenge anyone who thinks the best way to end this is by bringing the troops home.
Once again, tomatoes remind us with visual intensity that they are a shockingly sexual fruit.
