From time to time, we come across some strange products. This occasional series will feature the strangest of the strange.
ThinkGeek has posted for sale a bacon costume for pets of all sizes.
Of course, the larger question is a resounding "Why?" but let’s discuss a little about the costume before we make judgments.
First, bacon is huge right now. It has been for several years; and locally, you can buy bacon doughnuts, bacon-flavored beer and just plain ol' bacon. Just up the road in the Tri-Cities, the second annual Bacon Fest took place a few weeks ago.
Second, Halloween is just a little more than a month away. Wouldn’t this make the perfect complement to your hot dog and pork chop costumes?
So you can see why it kind of makes sense to dress up your dog like bacon, right?
This costume is $22.50 and ranges from XS (Yorkie size) to XXXL (Great Dane/camel size).
If you love bacon and you love your dog, this is a no-brainer of a purchase. Imagine the people you will impress. They will shout from rooftops, "Look, Sally! That dog down there is bacon!" All will laugh and life will be OK, if only for that one instant of pleasure given to them by your bacon dog.
Don’t eat your dog. That’s where we draw the line.
Are you sold? Would you dress your dog up like bacon?
