I used to have a roommate who religiously did the wake & bake, something I found pretty irritating most days, since he had to walk through my bedroom to get to the bathroom for his morning shower. (Worst house design EVER.) And he had to be at work by 7:00 a.m. every day. (Worst job EVER.) And so at 6:30 every morning my room would fill with the smell of morning bong hits and I would roll over and cover my head with a pillow.

If only my roommate was a Mathlete and had come up with this awesome invention. Suddenly he would have had someone to wake & bake with every day! This is a great idea, and check out the awesome piggy design! Yes, this simple looking alarm clock wakes you to the smell of sizzling bacon, making it easier to get up on the right side of the bed on a daily basis. If only Michael Scott had known about this technology. Everyone could have been saved a lot of pain.

I’ve checked out some of the comments on the web about this device, and I’ll tell you what…people can be serious nay-sayers! I, for one, find this invention to be both delicious and adorable. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to actually be on the market, but I bet the designer (matt@mathlete.com) would be willing to consider a custom build for you. Seriously, a bacon alarm clock?! I’d call that a dream upon waking.

Thanks to Mike Z. for this fantastic find!
