Are you a lover of cured meats? How would you feel to be buried for all of eternity in a bacon coffin?
The bacon coffin -- for those who love bacon to death -- is now a reality thanks to the makers of Baconnaise, but don't worry, it's not made of actual bacon.
Bacon Coffins are made of an 18-gauged gasketed steel with a premium Bacon Exterior/Interior, and includes a Memorial and Record Tube, Adjustable Bed and Mattress and Stationary and Swingbar handles, according to its maker, priced at $2,999.99 plus shipping.
The creators of the bacon coffin, Seattle-based J&D Foods, have paved their way into making bacon-themed products since the get-go, with food items like bacon mayonnaise called Baconnaise, bacon soda and bacon lubricant on their product line list.
According to J&D, this new creation is to put the 'fun' back in funerals with a bacon memorial tube and a bacon-themed air freshener for when you get that buried-underground, not-so-fresh feeling.
Don't you judge us, J&D owners Justin Esch and Dave Lefkow told Seattle King 5 News. After baconlube (bacon flavored personal lubricant), we all knew it was just going to keep getting weirder. And yeah, your (sic) right we're probably going to hell for this one.
Esch told the Huffington Post that J&D Foods has already sold one coffin and has heard world of interest in the bacon coffin from as far away as Great Britain.
We're saying that this is the coffin for people who love bacon to death, Esch told the Huffington Post.
And it's not just an April Fool's Day prank, according to Justin Esch, though it was released so close to the holiday of trickery.
We sent this release out around April 1, thinking people would think it's a joke, but the real joke is that it's real, Esch told the Huffington Post.
If you're a diehard lover of bacon, you can purchase the peculiar bacon casket at Baconsalt.com for $2,999.99. Now you just have to decide if you want to be buried sunny-side up or over-easy.
