On this weekâ€™s show Sean and I interviewed the man behind the Wendyâ€™s @UrBaconMeCrazy twitter account. His name is Billy and he loves bacon. He also gave us some insight on the Biggest Bacon Lover Hunt that Wendyâ€™s is doing. You can find more information about it in this Ad Week post. It features yours truly as a bacon authority!
Also after the video bellow you will find a list of just about everything we talked about. Since Sean and I are both too lazy to do this we canâ€™t take credit for it. Aaron from I <3 Bacon Salt is going to start writing show notes for every show he can. I am still going to do my short ones at the top but I am going to post his too. Be sure to enjoy the new show notes and thank Aaron next time you see him in the chat room.
Recently I was in the market for some headphones and at the time I didnâ€™t find any that matched my brand. I ended up settling for a black pair of Skullcandy ear buds. They sound really good, but they are not what you would expect a bacon loving blogger to wear.
A Japanese accessory maker called Greenhouse has made the perfect ear buds. They are called â€œbutaâ€, which is Japanese for piggy. Looking around online I found a few lucky people that own a pair and they say they are pretty nice. I am sure they’re better than the ones that come with most iPods and iPhones.
The Piggy ear buds are only 15 bucks and come in five flavors: black, pink, white, orange, and purple. The only problem is they are only sold in Japan and as of right now no US store is selling them.
A few places that I checked are Japan Trend Shop, Geek Stuff 4 U and Rinkya. It looks like Rinkya is the only option but I’ve never used them before. I do know someone that lives in Japan, maybe I can talk him into sending me a pair but that still doesn’t help you.
The perfect headphones for bacon lovers are so close but yet so far away. Come on, Wal-Mart, get with this and start selling these things!
This is the third bacon hit to come out of the bacon community recently. The first was King Curtis with â€œBacon is Good for Meâ€, followed by Big Cheese with â€œGimmie Dat Baconâ€. It seems that these bros are going after the singer song writer crowd with their hit â€œBaconator Comboâ€.
Bacon is hot in indie music right now. I wonder how long itâ€™s going to take for Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga to come out with a bacon hit. Sean and I will be watching the music charts and will let you know if anything develops.
On last nightâ€™s show Sean and I reviewed Mr. Porkyâ€™s pork crackles, a snack food from England. They were amazing, basically they were a pork rind but smaller. Watch to show to see what I mean. I plan to do a full write-up on them next week.
Also on the show was one of the best bacon rap videos ever. It was called â€œGimie Dat Baconâ€ by Big Cheese. It tells the story of a young manâ€™s love for the perfect breakfast food.
I think I finally found out where Arby’s gets their tiny strips of bacon. Sean and I both thought it was because they ripped one normal strip in half, but that might not be the case. They could be stocking their stores with micro-pig bacon. Check out the video bellow to see what I am talking about.
Micro-pigs are the hot new pet in England. They cost about $1,149.61 USD and celebrities are buying them up like there going out of style. They are smaller then the potbelly pigs that were a trend in the 80’s.
They start out the size of a tea cup then grow to about 14 inches tall and weigh up to 55lb. Thats just a little more then a box of printer paper form Office Deport.
Yes domestic pigs can (key word is can) make good pets. They are friendly, enjoy people, quite, and very clean animals. You don’t have to take them for walks and they have very few health issues. And yes you can even toilet train them. You can read all about it in a article in Daily Mail a UK publication.
On a serious note pigs are not the perfect pet for everyone. They can be very destructive and mean if left unattended. Pigs are also known to be very intelligent which could be both a good and bad thing. Also in the States there are a lot of regulations to own livestock.
If you do decide to get a pig for a pet please take good care of it and feed it well. That way if it does get to much for you to handle you can take it to get butchered. Nothing taste better then bacon you raised and cared for yourself. Just ask any local pig farmer.
