I really don’t get why bacon is the meat that everyone loves, with inedible iterations modeled after bacon like clothes, furniture, tattoos, soap, hats, and scarves. Prosciutto di Parma aged ham doesn’t have this kind of cult following.

The fact some of these images are from a website called Mr Bacon Pants also speaks volumes. Mr Bacon Pants is not alone in his love of this A-list meat. On Metallica’s tour rider notes, a line that appears in all capitals reads, "BACON VERY IMPORTANT THAT BACON BE AVAILABLE AT EVERY MEAL AND DURING DAY."

Here are some weird bacon-flavored foods that have nothing to do with breakfast:
