Curiously, this man in a bacon costume inspires us. He epitomizes the out-of-the-box, sometimes silly, sometimes outrageous, sometimes-even-embarassing creative thinking that we love so much. We could view this man as a fool or brilliant, and realize sometimes they are the same thing.

  1. I love him too.
    And don’t forget Scout in “To Kill a Mockingbird” – dressed like a ham for the school play.
    Keep up the great work!

  2. I’d forgotten about Scout until you mentioned her. To Kill a Mockingbird was one of my favorite books and that scene, Scout dressed like a ham for the school play in a giant, unweildy paper mache construction that had her, as I remember, rolling away to safety… I’m going to read it again. Thanks Laura!

  3. Hi! Where on earth did you find such a bizarre photo as this man in bacon? It is incredible! Thank you! Phil in San Diego.
