You may remember our assertion, last year, that bacon had finally jumped the shark. Well, with the appearance of the bacon suit from Seattle novelty company Archie McPhee, we consider our prediction justified once and for all. Which isn’t to say we wouldn’t buy, and wear, the suit; after all, “each tuxedo is tailored from chemically treated latex-print fabric in one of four different sizes. Best of all, it smells just like bacon sizzling in the pan.” The chance to smell more like bacon than we already do is an irresistible one, even without the added cache of dry-cured couture.
Update: Archie McPhee has called to tell us that the bacon tuxedo, far from being a rococo bit of bacon excess, is nothing less than an April Fools’ joke still hanging around on the Website. We still believe that bacon has jumped the shark, however. It’s just a matter of time until someone develops a scented bacon tux.
