Baby Got Bac(on)

Macy, dear little Macy…received her very first piece of mail yesterday.  As much as I would have liked it to be a notification of an inheritance so she can be assured of college…it was not.  It wasn’t even an advertisement for Gerber Life Insurance.  It was a bacon catalog.


I know!  Can you imagine?  A whole catalog based on bacon.  This wasn’t your run of the mill Oscar Meyer type bacon.  This baby was chock-full of upscale bacon.  The last few pages of the catalog expanded into other smoked meats.  In fact, for only $149.95 (plus shipping), Macy could order a fully-cooked turkey and accompanying spiral-sliced ham (with honey-glaze packet).  Just pop it in your oven and heat it for Christmas delight. 

But Macy doesn’t have an oven.

Well if that wasn’t silly enough, today another catalog came in the mail.  A catalog called “”.  You know, so she can have a nice, smoky Cuban after a large holiday meal of ham. 

I can’t figure out where she would have gotten onto a list.  Is her pediatrician selling the database of all the Bozeman kids?  Should I expect credit card offers soon?  How young is too young for a credit card? 


I wonder if Macy will receive a golf catalog this week.  It only makes sense.

    I love the expression on her face in the picture with the bacon catalog. She appears solemn…as though she’s paying tribute to all of the pigs who gave their lives so that people could eat very expensive bacon. Sweet Macy.

    What in the world is high-end bacon? Do you know what part of the pig bacon comes from? It’s the stomach and if you ran to the butcher right now, you’d be surprised at how cheap you could purchase pig stomach. Who in their right mind would spend that kind of money on bacon? Probably the same person who sent your 2 year-old a catalog on bacon.

    Hmm. A Scotch catalog’s not a bad idea. I guess I could sign her up to be a Maker’s Mark Ambassador so she can get Christmas presents of old fashioned glasses, shakers, drink stirrers, etc…

    A bacon catalogue? Bacon … bacon. I just can’t get over the idea that people would sell bacon through a catalogue, because that means people are buying it by the butt load (*pun completely intended).

    Believe it or not, BF and I were nearly the recipients of specialty bacon out of one of those catalogs for Christmas one year. MM realized at the last moment how overpriced the bacon was, and also that we wouldn’t know what to do with 15 pounds of bacon that can’t be frozen, but it was a close one.

    And then a Scotch catalog! Sounds like the same market, don’t you think? One that Macy fits right into.

That's what she said!
