Now you can be buried in a bacon coffin

|

Here’s what a bacon coffin looks like.

The guys at J&D’s Foods — the makers of bacon salt, baconnaise and bacon Kevin Bacon — just introduced the ultimate bacon must-have.

A bacon coffin.

Early April Fool’s joke? Perhaps. But the last time J&D’s joked about making a weird bacon product (bacon lube, in that case), they ended up having to manufacturer it for distribution due to high demand.

The coffin costs $3,000 according to the seller’s website.

Here’s how it’s described:

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.

No returns accepted.

Real or a joke?

“Yes, this is really real,” the company’s founders wrote in a statement.

If you say so, guys.
