First off, let me apologize to those of you out there trying to chime in on the Bacon Top 5 list. We didn’t realize we were having technical difficulties until some of you told us about it, so thanks. The very able Naseem got right on the case and we are back up and running. So please, give it another go and send us your bacon faves. I can’t live another day without them!
Now on to my rant. Someone out there has been talking about this new “bacon iPod case” that’s supposed to keep my iPod all warm and snuggly. However, as this image clearly shows, this case is not representative of bacon, but a nice marbleized cut of beef! Maybe even Kobe beef. And while Kobe beef is certainly a worthy and delicious meat, it ain’t no bacon.
So what gives, Mr. Jobs? Where’s are my bacon accessories? Why must I wander around, letting my iPod get all scratched and dinged when it would be so easy to throw together one more novelty case? And you think this butcher packaging is clever? Just think how cool it would be to wrap this baby up like a pound of bacon. Come on…you know you like it. I’d be more than happy to make a pitch to your marketing department.
I’m sure Steve Jobs will be emailing me later today. And there you have it. Royal Bacon Society: Changing the world, one post at a time.
