Because it's never too early for bacon

I hate getting up in the morning.
So when my alarm clock goes off, those first few thoughts are not exactly fit for public consumption.
Maybe it would be slightly different if I had THIS clock. I found it while websurfing, and have been meaning to blog about it for a few weeks now.
It's called the "Wake-n-Bacon".
Instead of waking you up with just a noise, it wakes you up with the smell of fresh cooked bacon.
Yes, real actual bacon that you can eat.
You put a frozen slice of bacon in it the night before, and it starts cooking ten minutes before you want to wake up.
Not bad for a pig-shaped wooden box, huh?
Now, if I can just find some that also cook eggs and ham and sausage... and maybe some French toast.

Sometimes I set the bread maker's timer for first thing in the morning if I have to get up early. Then with the coffee timer and the bread machine I have good reasons to get up.

If I had the bacon thingy, that would be even better. Can you fix more than one slice? Because if I made bacon and didn't give any to the kid or husband they'd raise a fuss.

I heard about this on Wait Wait... I pictured something more sophisticated.

I hate the tatste of bacon altho the smell of it makes me hungrier than anything. I would be 600 lbs with that kind of wake up system!

Marilyn: I know... I was kinda surprised too when I saw it was just a big wooden box with pig features.

Morgian: Pretty cool, huh?

BroadwayMatron: If, by "crazy", you mean "mmmmm, baaaaacon....", then I agree completely! :)

EvilGenius: Now I'll have to come up with some OTHER idea to make my millions! Hmmm. I should start making a list.

CincyDiva: I love the smell of bacon AND the taste of bacon. So if I tried it, I'd probably weigh even more!

Funny you should mention bacon, because a friendly blogger I know in Texas just enlightened me about the wonders of chicken fried bacon: Thick and peppery Farm Pac® bacon is seasoned, double-dipped in a special batter and breading and deep-fried. Served with a creamy side of ranch or honey mustard sauce.

Can you say cardiac arrest?

Oh, you almost had me - if only it made coffee, too...

Janna said...

DaOldMan: Mmmmm!

Xup: Ooooh, it sounds yummy with the honey mustard sauce!! Wow. Deep fried bacon. That would definitely be something to blog about... if I could finish the post before my arteries slammed shut.

Nursemyra: Yay! Please come back!

Morgen: There are coffee machines with timers, and you could set one to coincide with the bacon. Voila! Breakfast!

Travis: I just wish they looked a little classier, but other than that, YEAH! Bacon!! :)
