Thought experiment: What would be this statue's Kevin Bacon number if Kevin Bacon were to ignore the asterisk and eat it?

Now Kevin Bacon is separated from every animal in the kingdom by no less than 6 strips. The world can implode now.

Date of Creation: 2000-Now

Well there ya go. There is Clinton administration-era bacon involved. That cannot be good for you.

No, this is more like Conan O'Brien.

Misleading. I wanted a full-body rendition with Bacon interviews, the ritual sacrifice...This just looks like a generic, brick-red Bill Plympton dream fart.

I'm all for eating tasty animals, but when you start to sculpt with their dead meat parts to raise money for charity I think you've taken one step closer to the abyss. At least they aren't claiming it's art. Well, they are, but those are obvious jokes, right?

Since we're talking about celebrity avatars made out of foodstuffs, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Butter Paula Deen.

Dear The Internet,

It has recently come to my notice and attention that you are far too amused by the existence of bacon. While I am currently childless, I have always been of the sort to make personal vows against certain methods of disingenuous parenting presented by media depiction and e.g. anecdotes from friends, i.e. 'Eat your cauliflower because there are starving children in Africa.' This has always seemed to me rather more guilt-inducing and manipulative than prudent advice; however, Mr. The Internet, are you aware that there are actually starving children in Africa? It's true. You should look it up on you. In any case I find it slightly unsettling to imagine a third party's perspective on the whole situation: pot-bellied children with flies on their tear ducts over here, lunatics with inedible bacon sculptures over here. You say that you are a tool for global communication, The Internet; are you sure you want that?

With love and squalor,

shakey

FAIL. Non-edible, and doesn't look like Kevin Bacon. This is the exact opposite of the real Kevin Bacon, who is both edible and resembles himself to a great degree.

If you need to dereference a Bacon pointer to get access to the Kevin Bacon object, something has probably gone awryin your class structure or namespace.
