What could be better than spending eternity wrapped in your favorite cured meat?
If your dying wish is to be buried in bacon, a company that specializes in bacon-themed products, such as bacon mayonnaise, bacon salt and bacon lubricant has just the thing for you: a bacon coffin.
J&D’s Foods has created the Bacon Coffin, what they call the world’s first bacon-wrapped casket, according to King 5 News.
"Yes, this is really real," wrote J&D owners Justin Esch and David Lefkow in an e-mail press release.
“Bacon Coffins are finished with a painted Bacon and Pork shading and accented with gold stationary handles. The interior has an adjustable bed and mattress, a bacon memorial tube and is completed in ivory crepe coffin linens."
The Bacon Coffins are available for $2,999.95 plus shipping.
In the email announcing the Bacon Coffin, Justin and Dave added, "Don’t you judge us, after baconlube (bacon flavored personal lubricant), we all knew it was just going to keep getting weirder. And yeah, your (sic) right we’re probably going to hell for this one."
