And now it would seem that we can't escape bacon, even in death. Perhaps it's only fitting that something that brings our end closer can now be closer to those who love it so. Boing Boing has the story of the bacon coffin. I'm officially calling it. This is the death of the bacon trend. Time of death: 10:15 a.m. Friday, March 30, 2012. If you'll excuse me, I want to tell its family - the shoulder and rump - what has happened.
