Bacon-Wrapped Dental Hygiene

Love to eat, but hate to floss? Me, too! I won’t elaborate on my mental process, but the very thought of flossing kind of grosses me out. That’s why the good folks at Archie McPhee have done it again. Bacon Floss allows you to enjoy all the foods you love,...

Bacon Hippos

In the tradition of seeing the Virgin Mary on your tortilla or the Shroud of Turin on your toast, this nice lady saw a vision of hippos in her rashers. And I think this may be a true miracle, because not one but ALL FOUR bacon slices revealed the portly African beast,...

Wake & Bake Redefined
