Wake up and smell the bacon!!

Wake up and smell the bacon!! There's an iPhone app for that, if you add a small attachment from Oscar Mayer.

I do wonder how long before the attachment stops working. Is there a way to reload it?

It's a way to make money on the side.

A great idea, except that once you are fully awake you will fly into a murderous rage. Because: No bacon.

Seriously, get me something that, like my coffee pot, I can set up to fry my bacon the night before, and I would be on board.

(Everyone else complains that we don't have flying cars yet; I'm holding out for Pee Wee's breakfast machine.)

Well, you could DIY it, but that didn't work out so well for that dude from the Office.

"A world without bacon is like the Earth without the world."

What??? Hearing that as I woke up, I'd bolt awake and start to fret, "Is that bacon-y scent I smell actually my brain's language center frying?"

Yay, more waste-of-oil crap that will be obsolete and in a landfill in less than five years. I’ll be sure not to buy Oscar Mayer products in the future just because they’ve engaging in a stunt like this. I do eat bacon and hot dogs, so this is not posturing by someone who doesn’t buy their products in the first place.

(Not a criticism of this post itself because this is interesting, plus *bacon*. Also, the headache I woke up with today is contributing to my attitude, perhaps I need some [non-Oscar-Mayer] bacon to cheer me up.)

I, uh, "won" one of these things the other day. I'll let you guys know how it turns out. Probably not well.

Reminds me of the Hedberg joke, if you just replace cinnamon rolls with bacon & incense with iPhone.... “I like cinnamon rolls, but I don't always have time to make a pan. That's why I wish they would sell cinnamon roll incense. After all I'd rather light a stick and have my roommate wake up with false hopes.”

I think Yankee Candle (bacon scented) might be a seller.

Just to combine this with the drone delivery thread...

It'd be a great waker-upper for vegetarians, because we'd be all, "Gah! Gotta get up and see who broke into my house to cook bacon!"
