Fast food chain Jack in the Box has debuted a modified form of planking known as Blacon. For those of you who don't know, planking is the "art" of lying as stiff as a board on top of random objects. The act took the Internet by storm with tons of photos of people planking in random places.

Jack in the Box is attempting to capitalize off of the planking craze with Blacon. Blacon, quite simply, is bacon planking. The company's Facebook page features a photo of a solitary strip of bacon sitting atop a bunch of bananas. The Internet is notorious in its love for bacon, so there is a good chance that Blacon could become a full-blown meme. Even if Blacon doesn't blow up, it still seems tastier and safer than traditional planking. Stats for Tasty Internet Meme Remixes Trending: Older & Chilly
