Last year, gdanea reported on WU that Oscar Mayer was offering bacon gifts for father's day
. Now Oscar Mayer is back in the news with an iPhone attachment that functions as an alarm clock by waking you with the smell of bacon. Details at wakeupandsmellthebacon.com
. They've created a slightly surreal video to promote the gadget.
A clock that wakes you with the smell of bacon isn't an entirely original idea. Back in 2009, Matty Sallin
designed a clock that would wake you by actually cooking bacon.
The smell lasts for up to 10-15 washes. Available here for $22.
The shirt is being sold by the the Lehigh Valley IronPigs minor-league club, which is also introducing bacon-themed uniforms. More info here

Comedian Ron White once credited his wife with the idea of a product men could take that would make semen taste like chocolate and everyone had a big laugh. While bacon flavored condoms
are not exactly the same thing, they sure reside in that neighborhood!
