Useless Drivel – ‘Tis the Season for Booty

Pirate ChristmasT’was the day after Christmas, and all through the ‘Net, not a podcast was playing, at least not yet!  The geeks and the gamers all had their new swag, so much great stuff they can’t help but brag.  From consoles and pirates and a bottle of rum, it’s time for your earholes to have lots of fun.  Your hosts Rob and Matt, probably tired and drunk, are here to chit-chat about pointless junk.  So, lend them your ears and stick around the joint; it’s a new Useless Drivel, the podcast without a point!

Bacon! Need I Say More?

Bacon… the pork product du jour.  Who doesn’t love bacon?  Seriously, even people who hate pork otherwise, love bacon.  I’m not exactly sure how or when it happened but bacon has somehow made itself a nice little niche in today’s geek culture.  But us monkeys loved bacon before bacon was cool… we are hipsters that way.  Also, we have a plethora of pictures to prove it.  That is how much we love bacon!

Here is a compilation of all bacon-related goodies that would make some awesome stocking stuffers!

Perpetual Kid, $6.49

Add some sparkle to your Christmas tree with a bacon ornament.  Sure, it’s missing that wonderful smell but it’s a momento of your most-loved food.

Rogue Ales, $13.00

Voodoo Doughnuts lends it’s signature Maple Bacon Doughnut to Rogue Ales to create a unique ale.  Now, I’m not an ale-type-a-gal and I would try this!

Neatoshop, $34.95

Yep, that’s a scarf!  Bacon warms not only your tummy but your soul too… so why not let it warm your neck!?

The Baconery. Bacon in every baked good!

I seriously considered ordering something from this place for us to enjoy during our Christmas Epsiode next week.  They are in NY but they have online ordering… OK maybe I am still considering it.

Archie McPhee, $39.95

Having trouble deciding on a bacon product?  Try Archie McPhee’s Bacon Collection.  It includes the likes of bacon floss, bacon soap, and bacon toothpaste… OK, this whole bacon thing may be jumping the shark but as long as it remains delicious, we will remain fans.
