Wake Up and Smell the Bacon!

It’s not that I forgot to turn my clock ahead an hour last night. It’s just that my alarm didn’t work.

Being both a techie fan and a bacon lover, you can imagine how thrilled I was when I found out I’d been selected as a beta tester for one of the hottest, cutting edge gadgets ever created: The Oscar Mayer Wake Up & Smell The Bacon App!


Butt let me start at the beginning of this amazing odyssey: I first learned about the Bacon App from Lady M who was tapped by Oscar Mayer early on to become a beta tester for their new device, as they had identified her as both an opinion maker and a bacon lover. After hearing that this amazing app not only wakes you up, butt does so to the sound and smell of bacon sizzling in a pan, well, I had to get my hands on it! After being rejected as a beta tester: 

I had to get Lady M to pull a few strings to get me signed up. I was understandably thrilled.


So what went wrong last night? Did my device fail to activate altogether? Or was the smell somewhat less than advertised?


Was it sabotage? The result of hacking by a foreign power? Deactivation by the DOJ as the app was found to be offensive to Muslims? Your guess is as good as mine. All I know is that, unlike moi, it has it’s own Facebook account, and if “Wake Up and Smell the Bacon” isn’t a “gadget” I don’t know what is. So I am going to discuss this with Ricky Holder.

holder-leaks-_jpeg-1280x960Hold on a minute! I don’t think bacon is a fundamental right!

So, since I woke late, the WONs are under wraps in Key Largo while Big Guy plays golf with the pros, I’m  turning today’s post over to a bacon-recipe thread. So tell me: what’s your favorite way to use bacon in a recipe? Here are the rules:

  1. The recipe doesn’t have to actually include bacon as an ingredient, so just tell us what you’re fixing for dinner.
  2. If your recipe does use bacon, it can NOT be turkey bacon. 

Take it home!

P.S. Maybe iPhone can use the scent of sizzling lamb chops for it’s next app: they could call it “Wake up America!”
