Josh Sankey Will Travel Across America Using Only Bacon as Money
FoodBeat.com ^ | September 12, 2012 | Angela Ayles

Well this brings a whole new meaning to the term bringing home the bacon. Actor Josh Sankey has been hand-selected by Oscar Mayer to embark on a journey unlike any other where he will be required to travel to 12 American cities using only Oscar Mayer bacon as money.

Sankey’s journey will conclude in Los Angeles on September 23, 2012 if everything goes to plan.

The actor/comedian will have 3,000 pounds of the company’s new, thick bacon which they insist is “worth its weight in gold” but will have no form of currency, including credit cards, debit cards, cash or anything else.

Well it makes sense. When you go to work you bring home the bacon. I guess he will be living high on the hog. I hope the temperatures are mild and not sizzling.

How about our Jewish brethren? Won’t they be equally offended?

Spend it while you can before some American General declares this an affront to Islam.

Should we expect the MusBros to threaten us now since Paul Ryan used to drive the WeinerMobile? Will he be getting a call from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff?

This thread is about bacon.

You’re not here yet.

I realized today that I'm one of the FReepers of the apocalypse. I never noticed but my sign up date is the day the world is supposed to end. Now if only I could find the other 6.

Given the high price of meat today, it’s worth a few dollars a pound at least. He just has to hook up with grocery stores and farmer’s markets or hungry families along the way to sell it or trade.
