OK, anti-virus face masks have now officially jumped the shark!


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

The mask is made of two-ply multifiber cloth that helps to keep the bacon scent throughout its entire use.

There's more at the link.

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?

Inquiring minds want to know!

I signed up! When I was eight or so, I put my name in at a new store in town, and won a silver service set. My daughter gets it when I'm gone. Having been a missileer, and having awoken below the gravel about 270 times, well, when the time comes, I won't wake up. I'll be next to my late wife.

Turkey bacon is an oxymoron.
