You are born. You live. You die. And now … you can be buried in a BACON coffin!
According to a local NBC news story, a Seattle company named J & D’s Foods – the guys behind products such as Baconaisse and BaconLube – have just introduced the Bacon Coffin. Here is their description:
Is there a better way to show your love of bacon forever than to be buried wrapped in it? We don’t think so.
This genuine bacon casket is made of 18 Gauge Gasketed Steel with Premium Bacon Exterior/Interior, and includes a Memorial and Record Tube, Adjustable Bed and Mattress and Stationary and Swingbar handles. It also includes a bacon air freshener for when you get that buried-underground, not-so-fresh feeling.
There are all sorts of unusual caskets out there – motorcycles, PBR cans, iPhones, tanks, Star Trek themes and more. We think that your final resting place deserves the eternal glory that is bacon.
The coffin itself isn’t made out of bacon in case you were wondering. It has the air freshener to aid with the aroma, but is otherwise a normal coffin just painted to look like bacon:
The coffin, for those who care about specifics beyond the porky design, is made of 18-gauge gasketed steel and lined with ivory crepe linens. It also has a memorial tube and an adjustable bed and mattress.
For just $2999 (which in coffin terms isn’t and outrageous price) you can get yourself all set up to carry the aroma of bacon to your final resting place.
