The Bacon Coffin--acknowledging what probably killed you
It goes without saying that your funeral is your last public appearance. Why not share with the world your true passion? And for a lot of pretty shallow people, that passion is bacon.
According to the Seattle Times, Justin Esch and David Lefkow, the brain trust that brought the world Bacconaise, Bacon Salt, Bacon Lip Balm, and Bacon Lube, have taken things to a new level by introducing the bacon coffin.
The coffins are state of the art, and according to the duo:
are finished with a painted Bacon and Pork shading and accented with gold stationary handles. The interior has an adjustable bed and mattress, a bacon memorial tube and is completed in ivory crepe coffin linens.
Their bacon box sells for $2,999.99, and they say they've already sold one.

The whole idea sounds lovely. Although, if it's already going into the ground, why not make it out of actual bacon? Just a thought.
