Bacon Rage

Or rather, No-Bacon Rage. Shaneka Monique Torres ordered a bacon burger at McDonalds, but got a burger without bacon. She "vigorously demonstrated her dissatisfaction" and received a free bacon burger as compensation. Her hunger not yet satisfied, she returned a few hours later for another bacon burger, but again received a burger without bacon. At which point she pulled out a handgun and fired a shot into the building. It hit no one, but she's now on trial for felonious use of a firearm. Her attorney has not said what her defense will be.

Gun Silencer Bacon Cooker

I've heard about using a car engine to cook breakfast (in fact, that idea is immortalized in Rick Altergott's great artwork for WU -- see the side column), but this is the first time I've seen a gun used for the same purpose.

The Perfect Easter Egg

A bacon Easter egg! I'd certainly fill it differently, but the idea is deliciously appealing!

$$BACON$$

A disease that affects pigs has made its way to the US recently. Adult pigs get sick and have diarrhea and vomiting then they recover but newborn piglets do not fare as well. As many as 80% of piglets that get the disease die from dehydration. So look out bacon lovers, the price is going up, up, up.

Wake up with bacon

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.
