Sizzling news: Oscar Mayer creates the bacon phone, complete with scent
Madison Dot Com ^ | 3/6/2014 | Bill Novak

So you're lying in bed, waiting for the alarm to go off, when you start sniffing a wonderful aroma, that of bacon sizzling in a pan.

A little strange, since you're the only one home, but totally pleasant nonetheless. How is it possible?

With a new mobile device from the creative minds at the Oscar Mayer Institute for the Advancement of Bacon.

The Wake Up and Smell the Bacon device plugs into the headphone jack of an iPhone, and when it's activated, the device emits a small puff of the scent of bacon, with the accompanying sizzle sound.

Bacon lovers (who isn't?) can start applying Thursday to get the device for free; it won't be sold in stores and quantities are limited.

Ahhhhh.....give one to the neighbor whose dogs keep dumping in your yard. Then, call him at two in the morning. The dogs will spend the next four hours scratching at the phone. Call him several times during the day when he’s at work.

Sounds good...but without the real stuff waiting to be eaten for breakfast...I would just be pi$$ed off.

That was my thought too. What good is the smell, if there's no real bacon at the other end?

Now, a Bacon Delivery Service that takes phone orders would be a nice addition....

Now you’re talking. One order of bacon and a side of coconut cake. :-)
