Pig Face Stew - Epic Meal Time

Pig Snout Car

Thanks to J&D's yet again!
As you can see -
Leather helmet - check.
Fighter pilot goggles - check.
Pig snout car - check.

3rd Degree Burns

Thanks Morgs for this!
For those of you who don't live in South Africa or have not seen Debora Patta on 3rd Degree, this may not make much sense to you!
Basically she is a hard hitting journalist, who has got a reputation for being somewhat tough.

So here is a cartoon from the great farcical news site - Hayibo!

Bacon Croutini

Thanks Clint for sending this in. Available at Woolworths here in South Africa.

Basically it is Croutons : Bacon.
Yes. That is the description! It goes for R12.99 and is perfect for adding to soups and salads...sounds good to me!
Although on further inspection it contains now Bacon! All sorts of other things in there, including Caramel, but no Bacon - what's that about?

Coffee and Bacon Infused Vodka

Over on Wired  Ken Denmead is creating his own Coffee and Bacon infused Vodka.
He's written up the whole process and it certainly doesn't sound too complicated - he's not distilling his own vodka - just infusing coffee and Bacon to a store bought bottle of vodka.
And by his accounts it came out pretty well.

He then goes on to make a Breakfastini - 2 parts coffee/bacon vodka, 1 part sweet vermouth, shaken with crushed ice and strained into a martini glass, and served with a stick of Bacon!

Check out...

No such thing as a micro Pig!

A couple in the UK are surprised that their "Micro" Pig, which started off fitting in a tea cup is now weighing in at 158kg! That is huge! And would make some great Bacon!

Check out the full story here.

Bacon Fairy

Unlike the tooth fairy, you'll never stop believing in the Bacon Fairy!

SPAR and Bacon

Thanks Schoem for sending this through.
Not sure what SPAR are up to there, but it looks like Bacon is like one of those high-theft items. The only way you can now get it is by asking a member of staff!

Epic Meal Time Smart Phone App

Epic Mealtime have released an Epic Mealtime Smart Phone App!
It's available here for iPhone and here for Android.
For Android, here in South Africa it'll cost you R16.49 - I guess that's around US$2.
And in the iTunes store its US$2. So same price in both.

Test it out and let us know what you think.

From the site : "Epic Meal Time game on your mobile. You're welcome.
It's the Epic Meal Time mobile game haters!
Fling delicious unhealthy food at the Sauce Boss to make your score go sky-high but beware of the veggies, having too many will end your game and bring shame on you.
There are tons of crazy items and perks to unlock; Hats with god-like powers, new foods and meals, awesome backgrounds, extra lives and more stuff coming soon.
Music by commodore 84 + A1 & 1UP and the Dub Cobra"

Bacon Scale is made of Bacon

J&D's posted this Bacon Scale on their Twitter feed. And it's made of Bacon!
I like it!

Tom Macon - The man loves Bacon

Thanks to Schoem for pointing this out to me...makes me quite nervous...looks like this Tom Macon's belly is going to explode showering us all with bits of intestine and Bacon!

From the article this dude loves Bacon more than most - but with a last name like Macon it's surprising he hasn't given Macon a whirl. Now before you get all hot and bothered, that was a joke. Nobody should be subjected to Macon. Nobody.

So anyway, Tom Macon wants to start blogging about Bacon for a living...I guess he certainly does have the billboard space for a lot of advertising there!

Check out his site - Tom Macon.

Sex, Bacon, Rock'n'Roll T-Shirt

Sex, Drugs, Rock'n'Roll...nope...that's not's Sex, BACON, Rock'n'Roll!
Things you can't live without!

Bacon in its natural habitat

Sent by Fraze-Bru in Oz. Thanks dude.
Bacon has been spotted in its natural habitat, surrounded by rocks and pebbles in a dry river bed.
And we all thought Bacon came from Pigs...maybe we were wrong?

Ladies of Bacon

Thanks to Banch for sending this through - a website with some of the most Awesomest photos of women and Bacon! Some of these certainly do make the Awesometer go off the charts!
Here is a sample, but click here to see the rest on The Heavy's website...

There is Bacon on that burger!

Ba Co N - Periodic Bacon

Barium, Cobolt and Nitrogen - Periodic Bacon!

Justin Bieber Bacon - No one wants this!

Finally someone has made some Bacon that no one wants to eat and no one wants to have anything to do with! Justin Bieber made out of Bacon...this is indeed a sad sad day for the universe.
Shame on whoever made this. Shame. Shame. Shame.
I'm sorry I had to make you all see this too...but we need to know where the limit is so we know what is and what is not acceptable.
What I am saying is that anything to do with Justin Bieber is NOT acceptable. Ever.

Now you can't eat me...

Nice try little one...but give it a few weeks and you'll make a great sucking pig!
Thanks for the input Strevo! It's actually a good one!

Oz Smith's Thinly Cut Crispy Bacon Crisps

Thanks Seb in Oz for sending this across!
Looks like these are the same as our Lays (do we get those here or was that in the UK?), but they come in a Crispy Bacon flavour! Got to love that!

Eggs and Bacon Bay

Apparently in Tasmania there is a place called Eggs and Bacon Bay. Nice. I like the name. Pity it's on the arse end of the world and even then it's hiding under the hole.
But have to admit it does look kind of nice there.

Pancake Darth Vader with Bacon Cape

A Pancake Darth Vader has a Bacon cape...sounds normal.

Unicorn Bacon

J&D's is claiming to be launching Unicorn Bacon in 2013...not sure about that but they do have a pretty good Venn Diagram illustrating the overlap of Unicorns and Bacon...ok so maybe I do believe!

Bacon is the answer

The question...we're not so sure what that is, but at least we now know the answer!

When life hands you a Pig

...make Bacon!

Homemade Sausages, Candied Bacon and Bitch Morgans

Mincer and Jack Daniel's - in for a good evening!

Last night we were all invited to Cheese's house for Vark Club. It's been a while since our last Vark Club so were all suitably excited and ventured forth. On the agenda was sausage making (Cheese has a mincer and has recently perfected the art of making sausages - see the post from a few days ago here).

Meat Cereal - Epic Meal Time

Bacon Elvis

Somehow, somewhere Elvis has been spotted in a piece of crispy Bacon! Oh rejoice! He is alive in our Bacon! He lives on! Let him play music!


Spotted this on The Daily Bacon - The Pig and Whiskey 2012 - looks to be taking place from the 13 July to the 15 July 2012.
From the Metro Times in Detroit it looks like its happening in Ferndale. So if you read this and happen to be in the area and check it out let us know what its all about! We don't get big fancy fairs like that here - especially ones that are all about Pig and Whiskey!

So from the article : "a full weekend of BBQ, whiskey sampling and outdoor entertainment!"
Live music, a Cocktail Corner with some of the finest Whiskey's, a General Store featuring BBQ related goods, and games like washer toss and four-square ball.
There will also be more than 10 BBQ restaurants on-site as well as over 20 whiskey's to sample, and a beer tent!

This event looks fantastic! This should be done everywhere! I'd love to go to something like this!

Monday Morning Mantra

Thanks Tweeds for this!
Bacon definitely needs to be on the list of things that are ok on a Monday morning...see the rest!

Homemade Sausages

Cheese arrived at Friday afternoon's ride with a small cooler box looking like he was transporting a human heart in desperate need of a body. But it was better than that. It was some homemade Pork sausages in desperate need of a belly! And into mine they went!
Saturday morning breakfast fry up.

I can't quite recall what Cheese said went into them but I could taste the flavours! Fantastic! And the texture was great - loads of real Pork meat, along with real chunks of onions. These were the best he's made so far!

Thanks Cheese!

Here are some of the photos.

Before going on the grill

Bacon - because you can't have breakfast without Bacon

Ready to be eaten

Look at the texture! Awesome!

Friend vs Bacon

Why eat one and not the other? Because one tastes like Bacon?

Social Media Explained with Bacon

Ever wondered about all those different icons you see on websites? Twitter, Facebook, LinkdIn? What do they all mean? Well here is a very straightforward explanation using Bacon to illustrate how they are each used!

Hope it helps you navigate the pitfalls of social media!

Japanese Bacon Vending Machine

Thanks to J&D for pointing this one out - why do the Japanese get all the good stuff first?
This looks to be a vending machine that has Bacon! How awesome is that? And how come only in Japan?

Epic Brunch Time

EpicMealTime have just posted a picture on their Twitter from same place called Harvard & Stone. Looks like its some sort of cocktail bar with cocktails with names like "Panty Raiders of the Lost Arc" and "Baby's first Bourbon".
Anyway...they posted a picture highlighting the Epic Brunch Time which includes a shot of Gentleman Jack, candied Bacon and a can of beer! Perfect breakfast me thinks!
