I shudder to think how many handjobs for a slab of bacon he's been offered.

/gas, ass, grass, crash, or BACON.

How much bacon will a hooker charge to pull pork?

Halt. This is a robbery. Hand over your bacon.

Counterpoint: shower curtain rings will never spoil.


They're filled with helium so they're very light.

Will said money bacon be cooked to a crispy deliciousness? Or will he have a trailer full of stinking rotten meat after he forgets to refuel the refrigeration unit?

opened bacon lasts for 2 weeks at room temp as long as it does not dry out. Unopened bacon.. probably alot longer

With a sufficient quantity of bacon, why would a person need to buy anything at all? It can serve as shelter, clothing, food (of course), and given a hot smooth surface to travel upon, a speedy means of transportation.

///probably wouldn't work so well as reading glasses, I guess...

Real bacon, or fiat bacon?

I can see this working well for somethings, less well for others. Crashing at someone's house in exchange for bacon would work quite well, Buying Gas less so. You start to approach a point where it is not practical for most people to store that much bacon. I like bacon but I don't really need 15 or 20lbs of it.

Turkey bacon. It looks like real bacon but it's not.

That was my thought exactly. The first day he needs gas, what's he gonna do? Roll into a Shell station and offer the clerk some bacon? Stand there and try to trade bacon for cash or gas to other patrons? As much as I love bacon, it's just not going to work. And besides, if some guy I don't know offers to sell me bacon at a gas station, I'm just going to assume it's bad or drugged and go to Safeway.

Well, guessing here but figuring Oscar Mayer or whoever their PR people are aren't completely stupid when it comes to running stunts like this. So I'd figure there are probably going to be company people available when he stops - running interference, taking pictures, getting releases signed to use stuff for publicity. They'd also be the people to get the bacon trades set up - which a fair amount of people/businesses would probably go for. Free publicity for them, some bacon, amusement... yeah I can see doing it with the proper people running point for you np.

You'd pretty much have to that going on anyway to make it a worthwhile publicity stunt. Send no support people with him, and you get no video, no pictures of your own to use in advertising, no idea wtf is going non. No, that's not happening. Trust me, this guy's gonna have a frickin' entourage, if not necessarily traveling with him all the way different folks will be meeting him where he's stopping.
