BA-K-47: America's No. 1 bacon-based assault rifle

BA-K-47: the firearm that will simultaneously horrify and defeat the terrorists

After feasting my eyes on the vicious beauty of the BA-K-47, an AK-47 replica made of bacon (and wire), I'm not sure whether to call the NRA, the National Pork Board or Ted Nugent. Made with two full cases of bacon by the geniuses at This Is Freaking Ridiculous, I'm thinking this crispy, greasy a-salt rifle could inspire a whole line of meat-based weaponry. A Bakalashnikov? A Bacolt .45? A TEC-Porcine? The possibilities are endless.

SOME PIG

What do you use for ammo, bacon bits? Riblets?

makes me hungry and want to go shooting all in one picture!

What?! A guy tries to put some sizzle into his life and people talk about starving? Quit complaining and strip that veneer of self righteousness and replace is with a rasher of reality. If you want to feed the hungry Fedex your leftovers to Angola.

"this is a complete waste of a precious resource such as food. it's sad and disrespectful. you should find a better way to spend your time... like feeding the hungry."

Yep, and I'm sure you're a saint and you've never wasted anything in your entire life. If you live in America you feed into this capitalist society and contribute to this problem. Get off your high horse.

make bacon, not war!

"Strengthens my resolve as a vegetarian, is what it does."

Doesnt it make you feel great that all the meat you dont consume will be used to make Bacon Artiliary, and not feed a human being? AWESOME for YOU!!!!! I like it and want one for my dogs to chew on :)

I don't think its real anyways. It look more like he just covered a gun with bacon. If you notice the chamber. Maybe I am wrong but go figure.

i so want one so bad now, why didnt i think of that

So many complaints in here. If you don't all shut up I'll feed the vegans some lead salad.

Unashamedly wasteful

this is a complete waste of a precious resource such as food. it's sad and disrespectful. you should find a better way to spend your time... like feeding the hungry.

i'm hungry

Digg sucks

Poor little piggies :( .

"Strengthens my resolve as a vegetarian, is what it does."

Just because of that comment, I'm eating bacon-wrapped ham tonight.

There is no waste. I would gladly eat it. Art + nutrition = awesome!!!

I have to go with the "why" as well; this is a colossal waste of time; with lil to no redeeming value; man this isn't even a "hobby" lol...

Robert Douglass - no on cares that you are a vegetarian. Like broccoli doesnt scream when you pull it from the ground? For every animal you don't eat, I will eat 12. Enjoy your vegetables.

God bless America

Love it!! haha

why?

stoopid!

"I'm thinking this crispy, greasy a-salt rifle could inspire a whole line of meat-based weaponry. A Bakalashnikov?"

what's that in the picture, madame?

besides thats a nasty waste of food, there's people who would shoot you with a real ak for that amount of meat

THE BACON HAS BEEN WASTED!!!

Yeah. Really amazing artisan skills. Like building an aeroplane out of chewing gum. Wonder how many pigs died to provide the raw materials for this work of art? Pigs are actually really smart. Allegedly more intelligent than dogs. I'm sure they would have appreciated the beauty of the BA-K-47. Strengthens my resolve as a vegetarian, is what it does.

PS - humans are supposed to be able to read that CAPTCHA???

dude, WTF!?! I WANT ONE!!!!!!!!!!

What a waste of bacon.
