It's the year of the pig, and everybody's gettin' jiggy with the bacon. It's a feature of just about every place I visit on the Internet! Seriously! Who knew there was a bacon-of-the-month club? I thought that was some kind of television sitcom joke? Well, there really is a Bacon of The Month Club and it's for the hardcore bacon enthusiast - Homer Simpson style. Their membership includes a package a month of the finest bacons they have reviewed, and their list of reviews includes over 40 brands of bacon. They have lots of other great gift items and my personal favorites are the bacon, lettuce, and tomato votive candles, they must be a seriously trippy experience when you burn all three at the same time. They also have bacon-imprinted toilet paper, but at $9.95 a roll, you might want to consider rations when you wipe your bacon.
