Baconating Kevin Bacon (for charity)

Posted on Wed, Sep 29, 2010 at 12:08 PM

We here at Inlander HQ always knew Kevin Bacon was delicious, but now someone's gone to questionable lengths to objectively prove the point. J&D's Foods, makers of the (in)famous Bacon Salt, commissioned a bacon bust of the edibly-named actor from artist* Mike Lahue.

But lest you think this is merely the manifestation of some silly dream by dedicated bacon-heads (or bacon-Bacon-heads), it's actually being done for a good cause. They're auctioning off Bacon Kevin Bacon, along with extras like an official BKB carrying case and some disturbingly adorable BaconPeople, with all proceeds going to Ashley's Team, a nonprofit that focuses on bringing joy to children with cancer. Even though J&D and Ashley's Team are both Seattle-based, we're willing to look past that shortcoming (especially since some of the meat-addled minds behind J&D are WSU grads).

I'm not 100 percent sure on the rules for this, but I think owning some bacon-on-Bacon art makes you the automatic winner of the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" game, not to mention making you "the coolest person you will ever know, a champion of the underground meat sculpture movement" (as per the auction listing). Bid away, b(B)acon-lovers!


* I can find no evidence either proving or disproving the claim that Lahue solely uses meats as his media. But, to be honest, I didn't really look that hard.
