Bacon is awesome, right? I mean, I’m vegan and don’t eat the stuff, but I can honestly say that my mouth waters every time I smell it. Which is why I am happy to tell you about Squeez Bacon, a real, actual product that consists of partially reconstituted bacon made into an easy-to-spread paste. Developed in Sweden after World War II by a particularly creative chef looking for a new way to process bacon, Squeez Bacon is now available in the U.S. According to its advertising, “Vilhelm Lillefläsk’s Squeez Bacon® is fully cooked 100% bacon. Due to the patented electro-mechanical process by which Squeez Bacon® is rendered, it requires no preservatives or other additives. Each serving is as healthy as real bacon, and equivalent to 4 premium slices of bacon!” Slop some on a burger or use it to flavor your lemonade, no big deal. [$7.99, ThinkGeek]
When the hedgehog revolution comes — and it is coming — there will be no prisoners. When the hedgehog revolution comes, there will be a new world order. When the hedgehog revolution comes, it’ll be this adorable little hedgehog leading the charge.
Uh oh, watch out Lindsay Wixon! Girl, looks like there’s a couple of “Where The Wild Things Are” monsters creeping around after you in these Mulberry ads, shot by photographer Tim Walker. Get yourself outta those woods!
Q: One of the most talked-about new shows has been Girls. Do you watch that one?
Jenni: Never heard of it.
The pop culture zeitgeist just exploded, because “Jersey Shore”‘s Snooki and JWoww admit they’ve never even heard of “Girls.” Take that, Lena Dunham! [NY Mag.com]
Sometimes you want a little bit more than Diet Coke with your Taco Bell. Sometimes you want to class it up, go fancy, you know? Which is why wine expert Gary Vaynerchuk very helpfully answered an age-old question: What wine goes best with a Taco Bell Crunch Wrap Supreme? Vaynerchuk recommends a Syrah, but one specifically from Chile, because it reminds him of “purple Nerds candy” and “a little bit of charred barbecue top of baby back short ribs.” It, he explains, “dances a perfect dance” with the Crunch Wrap. Okay then. [YouTube]
Oh God, Rihanna, what now? Amelia seems to think that she’s officially at that point in her career where she’s working the “bitch don’t give a shit angle” — just to see how far she can take it. Like she is suddenty, somehow, “post-style.” Well lady, this is plenty far enough. Your Zooba cut-offs and tiny football tee should only (if ever) be worn in the comfort of your personal home gym (which I’m confident you possess). Otherwise, this entire look needs to be nixed, and fast.
