Baconfrying The problem with telling people you love bacon is that you'll receive a slew of awful bacon gag gifts. Bacon mints, bacon toothpicks, bacon air freshener, bacon gummy candy, bacon neckties... I have them all. This year, if you have a bacon fanatic on your list, love them enough to get them a quality bacon-themed gift. If you can't manage that, just get them some bacon.
