Five Places Bacon Is But Shouldn't Be

Posted By on Fri, Nov 11, 2011 at 8:00 AM

There's such abundant love for bacon in this world that thousands of people have hit upon ways to share their love of the crispy pork fat with the rest of us.

But some of these people go to far. Here's five bacon goods we find troubling:

5. Scratch and Sniff shirts

Scratch and sniff items lose their scent almost immediately, leaving the scratcher to squish her nose into the item, eyes closed, trying to recall the scent from the first time she dragged her nail across the image With this bacon-scented shirt, we have to wonder. Are you meant to remove it and then rub it across your face? Or is the benefit of the bacon stink really intended for the owner's friends -- who must love sniffing at chests.

4. Cologne

Cologne and perfumes are one of those close-up smells - like the BO of the person next to you on MUNI. While we'd much rather experience a whiff of breakfast while inching toward Embarcadero, we're not sure it's the optimal scent for daily life or date nights - at work, during jazzercise class, in line at the DMV - our olfactory system might just start to link the scent with memories of commuting or the day we took a really bad license photo, and well, no one wants to associate bacon with an image that could double as a mug shot.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
