Who knew pork parts could be so...artistic? Well, you just have to take a look at the 'Bacon Kevin Bacon' Statue. A clever portrait pun on this famous actor's name, it makes me wonder what Kevin Bacon would think of this tribute once he learns of it.
Yet at certain angles, the Bacon Kevin Bacon Statue looks more like Conan O'Brien. I think it's the hair. Artist Mike Lahue was commissioned by Seattle company J&D Foods to create this unique bust. It goes on sale today on eBay to benefit Ashley’s Team, a group that helps children with cancer and their families.
