Oh-em-gee, I can't imagine how this thing would make one's living room smell.

But for the bacon-obsessed among us, here's a way to commemorate your favorite food, your favorite actor, and (not even) six degrees of separation from all the other bacon/Bacon geeks on eBay.

It's a life-sized Bacon Kevin Bacon bust, apparently not an edible artwork but made entirely of bacon and bacon bits by Allentown, PA artist Mike Lahue.

How much will this thing end up going for? As I type this, the bidding is up to $348.

That's too steep for this broke-ass journalist, although I'm tempted to get out the AmEx just so that I can get the monogrammed carrying case that comes with it (why not go out on the town with this thing? Bring it to dinner?) as well as bragging rights that I'd be a "champion of the underground meat sculpture movement."

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
