    Actually, director Adam Rifkin created a product for his 1991 movie “The Dark Backward” called “Squeezable Bacon”. As a matter of fact if you run a google image search of “squeezable bacon” you’ll see one of his movie posters for the film which is basically the product poster for the product. And yes, it shows a hand squeezing brown ooze from a plastic bottle onto a sandwich.

    • mmm… fat… Tasty 🙂
      If I worried about everything that could possibly kill me, I’d never leave the house. I’d never go to work, I’d never breathe… YES LET’S OBSESS OVER WHAT WILL KILL US UNTIL WE ALL DIE FROM LACK OF OXYGEN BECAUSE OF ALL THE CONTAMINATED PARTICLE MATTER IN THE AIR!

    Listen up, you little commie bastard. Bacon is one of the seven wonders of the natural food world. So go eat your alfalfa sprouts and let the adults worry about the real food. Mmm’kay?

    INSTANT BACON!

    Squeeze Bacon was an April Fool, but the REAL “instant bacon” is BACONSALT, the bacon condiment that “makes everything taste like Bacon” and it is available now in Europe from UK company Crazy4Flavour (.co.uk)without the long wait and the cost of shipping from USA.
