Video: Introducing the Bacon Guitar

Here's a video someone sent us via Facebook -- the Bacon Guitar.

It seems to be merely a standard cheapo Spanish or classical-style guitar enrobed in bacon -- but it's still bizarre! The video includes instructions on how you can make your very own bacon guitar, followed by tips on how to write a love song about bacon.

Also included is a song, "Bacon Love Blues," played by the creator of the video (and of the bacon guitar) on his bacon guitar.

Bacon is distinguished from salt pork and ham by differences in the brine (or dry packing). Bacon brine has added curing ingredients, most notably sodium nitrite, and occasionally sodium nitrate or potassium nitrate (saltpeter); sodium ascorbate or erythorbate are added to accelerate curing and stabilize color.
