What’s This Squeezable Bacon Charlie Sheen Is Talking About Now?

Charlie Sheen’s talk-show-host debut, Charlie’s Korner, was good and forgettable, but one thing stuck in our mind: Blump’s Squeezable Bacon. Sheen mentioned the show’s supposed sponsor in passing along with Tiger Blood, but is it real? The short answer: No. Blump’s Chemical Corporation is a fictional company that appears on labels and advertisements throughout writer-director Adam Rifkin’s obscure 1991 flick The Dark Backward, and in his later movies as well. Check out this highlight reel of Blump’s ads and you’ll see a billboard for Squeezable Bacon as it appeared in the Rifkin movie that Sheen starred in, The Chase. Blump’s is also the manufacturer of Lemon Fresh Suppositories, Pork Cube Dinners, Powdered Eggs, Weaselroni, Yam Sicles, and Pig Newtons. By the way, Blump’s isn’t the only fake squeeze bacon out there. Now who’s going to make it for real? We’ve got squeezable hummus, after all!
