On Sunday, May 17th I attended the first annual Great Big Bacon Picnic, held out at the old Pfizer building in Williamsburg, where I ate Bacon until I wished to seen no more Bacon. It was a crazy fun time! My full report of the event complete with tons of pictures, is up now at Skulls and Bacon Dot Com. Please check it out and feel free to re-post and tweet the link to all of your Bacon Loving Friends!
What do you think comes out of this thing when you take a whack at it? Little bits of crispy bacon? Tiny pigs? What?
If you are going to make a 3D Print of a strip of Bacon, I think it should at least be cooked Bacon and not raw Bacon, as this 3D Model obviously is. But I am not complaining, Because, Bacon.

The most exciting thing about being a fan of Bacon is that, just when you think every possible way to consume Bacon has been presented, someone does something new and mind blowing with the meat candy of foods, and the love affair is reborn! Like, who thinks of wrapping Oreo cookies in Bacon and frying them up in a pan? I want to meet the person who invited Fried Bacon-Wrapped Oreos, and shake his or her hand.
Here is the recipe, courtesy of Oh Bite It Dot Com:
Here is What You Will Need:
Bacon – thin sliced
Oil for frying – Canola Oil is Recommended
Wrap one Oreo with one slice of Bacon, making sure to cover as much area as possible as you wrap the cookie.
Next, secure the bacon by gently inserting a toothpick through the end of the bacon into the white filling part of the cookie. Your Cookies should look like this:
Fry them up a few at a time, until they’re evenly golden on all sides.
Eat While Warm! Enjoy!
Foodie-ism ascends to a higher plane at Peter Anton’s The Foodhist Temple, up now at Unix Gallery. For this sensorally-immersive exhibit, Unix has transformed itself into a red-walled sanctuary displaying objects of adoration in the form of larger-than life sculptures of decadent food items. A Cheeseburger Deluxe Platter, several brimming Boxes of Chocolates and a mammoth Chocolate Layer Cake on a Pedestal are among the righteous treats nestled amid a plush-carpeted shrine, complete with dimmed lighting, New Age mediation music, lit candles and fresh flowers. Visitors are asked to remove their shoes upon entering.
As an aside, the carpet feels amazing against street-weary stocking feet.
To facilitate a blissful worship experience, pillows and rugs are scattered across the gallery/temple floor, so that devotees can comfortably prostrate themselves before the Food Idol of their choice. At The Foodhist Temple, Believers can relax, reflect, and achieve a heightened awareness of the importance of food and all of its pleasures.
The hyper-realist detail in these monumental sculptures — which Anton crafted using wood, metal, resin, clay, and both acrylic and oil paints — is extraordinary.
Visitors will pass by this little shrine on the way to the two smaller, rear galleries. There, you will encounter:
At The Foodhist Temple, all are Welcome.
Peter Anton’s The Foodhist Temple will be on Exhibit Through May 9th, 2015 at Unix Gallery, Located at 532 West 24th, in the Chelsea Gallery District.
Since I can’t be everywhere at once, I have secret, Pop Culture spies located all over the country, who are always on the look out for Pink Things and Bacon Things that they can send me to put on this here blog. The above sign was spotted at a Green Market in San Diego, California. Thank you, Spies!
How Insane is this thing? I stole this image from a fan of Worleyigig.com’s FaceBook Fan Page. I have no idea where it came from, but it exists, and so it much be a immortalized as a Bacon Thing of The Day!
