As an aficionado of All Things Stupid, I can admit to being a longtime fan of the Archie McPhee line of novelty products. But even they may have gone too far with their latest product:

These succulent strips of Gummy Bacon are so realistic you'll want to fry some up and serve them with an egg and a side of hash browns. But please don't. Gummy Bacon should only be savored raw. Each illustrated window box contains four 20 gram slices of strawberry flavored gummy meat sealed in a plastic bag.

Then again, this is the store that offers bacon bandages, bacon gift wrap, bacon air freshener, a T-Bone air freshener, the "I Love Meat" sticker collection and meat shower caps, (which almost insists that you purchase a meat shower curtain.

For those who are cutting back on their red meat, there's a complete line of sushi gift items, including a package of sushi bandages.

The fun doesn't end there. Coffee lovers (nee addicts) can worship their dealer by purchasing a barista action figure, complete with snooty green apron and interchangeable head.

For the more practical, there are some functionally useful items, including a line of bar accessories that feature cocktail mermaids, a cocktail clock and a leopard-print flask.

If nothing else, I'm sure the cops at the gate of your next professional sports outing will at least get a hoot when they frisk it off of your person and confiscate it for their own usage.
