It's almost hard to believe, but here it is, Carl Huber's Bacon Pig: a pork hot dog encased within a big old wad of ground pork and then lovingly wrapped in (what else?) bacon. It's hard to ignore the obvious artistry here. The finished bacon pig has garlic cloves for ears and chilis for tail and eyes. And regrettably, yes, the damn thing does bear a striking resemblance to Piglet from Winnie the Pooh. We're dealing with a sick bastard here, folks:
"... has anyone tried to restore a Frankenstein's Monster-like dignity to the pig from which the bacon hails? Probably not, because most people aren't this crazy."
