I could hardly believe this news report when I read it.
Hormel Foods has created a coronavirus face mask that may just be every bacon lover's dream.
On Wednesday, the company, known for its Black Label bacon, unveiled a face mask dubbed "Breathable Bacon."
Until Oct. 28, bacon lovers can test out the limited-edition package for free by entering for a chance to win on Breathablebacon.com.
The mask is made of two-ply multifiber cloth that helps to keep the bacon scent throughout its entire use.

Some important questions to ask:
- What sort of bacon? Streaky? Shoulder or back? Fried or grilled? Floppy or crisp?
- Is there a version with eggs as well?
- What about a version for those who observe kosher and/or halaal standards? If you don't offer one, isn't that discrimination? For that matter, what happens if you enter a kosher or halaal business wearing your bacon-scented mask? Are they allowed to refuse entry to you on religious grounds?
- What about turkey bacon?
