I'm Not Totally Sure If This Is Kosher

So I recently came across this bacon scarf (yes, that's right. A bacon scarf.) on craftster, and I had to think long and hard before deciding to post it. See, here's my problem with it: I made a point when I started this website to never post anything that's been purposefully made ironically, and lets sincerely hope that this has been.

After mulling over it for a few days, though, I decided to share it with you all because it reminded me of this one guy I used to see around campus sometimes at college. It wasn't that he looked like a bacon scarf, because he didn't especially. Instead, this guy had decided to grow a massively exaggerated and extraordinarily noticeable mullet, all in the name of some post-post-ironic fashion statement. He, and all of his football-playing buddies, thought it was totally hilarious and clever and I'm sure he got laid by lots of ladies who also thought he was terribly cool and hip and funny.

At the end of the day, though, the guy still had a mullet. And, at the end of the day, this scarf still looks like bacon. So, while I may be laughing, it's certainly not with them, which I have decided brings this crapft around full circle and back into the realm of postable images.

I think Alan Rickman would agree.


  1. wait, where is the lettuce hat and tomato mittens?! Actually, I think I came across some crocheted BLT coasters that would go beautifully with this one.

  2. My bad, it was a crocheted burger, you can purchase the pattern here:

  3. I actually love it!! Of course, I'm a big collector of things purposely made ironic.

  4. ps Have you seen Truly, Deeply, Madly? (with a young, dashing Alan Rickman)? It's one of my favorite movies.

  5. No, I have not seen it yet, although I must admit that over the last couple days I've become a bigger fan of Alan Rickman than I ever thought I would be. I think maybe I'll try and rent it this weekend, and I'll let you know what I think!!

  6. Every wife needs this for when her husband won't get off the couch and she wants to call him a Big Fat Pig.

  7. It looks like Holstien VS steam roller. [shudder]
