In honor of International Bacon Day: Bacon Flavored Lip Balm!

September 7, 2009

in a picture is worth a thousand words,marketing at work

I know I am late to the party. But here is my motto as a good wife and good mother: Family First, and Bacon Second…

September 6, 2009 was the Second International Bacon Day.  And of course, in case you, like I, wondered, there is a blog dedicated to this much celebrated holiday.

How much do we love bacon?  Or rather, how much do the marketing departments think we love bacon?

A lot, apparently.  Let me count the ways…

Every man’s dream?

A way to attract any man you want to?

Cougar alert?

Do the ladies in the soon-to-be-flop “Cougar Town” use this lip balm to help them lure their prey?

How long before I can no longer resist the temptation and press the “ORDER” button?  Would be an awesome gag gift.  Especially if package with the…

Bacon Flavored Gumballs!!

And, don’t forget the Bacon Flavored Jelly Beans

(No doubt, my obsession with bacon is long-standing…  Think Bacon flavored vodka: store bought and home-made)

Don’t feel like swallowing the questionable food items?  No problem.  Try bacon-flavored dental floss...

Don’t want your love for bacon involve your mouth at all?  How about showing it on your skin?

Bacon bandages

bacon bandaids

And so on and so forth…

Will bacon ever become too much of a good thing?

Update 09-13-2009:

Apparently not…

Now whenever I go on Amazon.com (or as a good friend with better conscience calls them, The Evil Online Retail Overlord), Bacon-themed product will prominently show up on the screen.  Eh. I wonder why…

“You might also consider…”

So I have been introduced to Bacon Air Freshener

The thing is, ever since 7, I can never look at any hanging car freshener without remembering that scene…  And so I was thinking, “Wouldn’t it be funny and ironic and even scarier if the serial killer aka Kevin Spacey actually used these?”

p.s. Apparently, one can become an “affliat” with Amazon.com and make $ by enticing people to click on the links that lead them to Amazon.  Trust me: I am too lazy to do that.  Jeff Bezos just owes me a lot of favors.  That’s all.
