Rest in Bacon? - Bacon Worship Has Officially Jumped the Coffin

"Everything Should Taste Like Bacon", Even Death
Bacon coffin (J&D / March 29, 2012)
From J&D's foods, the makers of an entire line of Bacon-flavored (and, ironically, Kosher certified)  products such as Bacon Salt, Baconnaise, and Bacon Pop, we now a final resting place designed for the uber bacon lover, the Bacon Coffin.

When I first heard about this "bacon and pork" painted, $2,999.95, casket (complete with a bacon-scented air freshener) I couldn't help but think, that the cult of bacon had finally gone too far.  I quickly realized, however, that they hadn't gone far enough.

First, the recently deceased should be dressed appropriately.  This means a bacon hat, bacon shirt, bacon tie, bacon pants, and even bacon shoes.

As traditional flowers would be inappropriate for such a ceremony, numerous bacon bouquets will have to be prepared.

Third, the coffin itself be made of real bacon, woven into in a lattice-like structure (like the bacon meatza crust). Or, better yet, ditch the coffin concept entirely.  Sub it out for an entire cured pig, a hollowed out Hog-zilla, Applewood smoked and seasoned to perfection.

Finally, the bacon coffin shouldn't be buried, but interred rather, in a meat mausoleum built with bricks of bacon.

Then, and only then, will the corpse in question be able to RIB (rest in bacon).
