My First Bacon: You’ve Got a Friend in Meat!

My First BaconOnline geek retailer ThinkGeek has a long history of introducing April Fools items that become so popular that they finally are made as real products. We’ve seen this happen with their 8-Bit Tie, the Personal Soundtrack Shirt, and most famously, the Tauntaun sleeping bag. Today, we got word directly from their official PR agency about the latest joke-turned-real product: My First Bacon!

It’s a plush likeness of the happiest strip of bacon you’ll ever see, 19 inches tall, with a mechanical animated mouth, and when you squeeze him, he proudly proclaims, “I’m bacon!” It’s a loveable, hugglable, snuggle-ready way to remind yourself that bacon truly makes everything better…and refrigeration isn’t necessary!

We can’t think of a better way for loyal baconists to create some excitement aside the Christmas tree or the menorah this holiday season. It’s also a great tool to have with you at times when you most need a feeling of comfort and happiness, such as boring meetings at work and torturous visits with the in-laws. Parents, pair one of these up your child, and he or she will grow up learning where to turn for true happiness in life.

Squeeze it, love it, share it with your friends. Just don’t eat it.

It’s available now from ThinkGeek for a mere $19.99.
