When I wake up in the morning, I’d love to roll over and find a hot sausage to suck the grease out of. If that’s not an option then this bacon alarm clock might be the next best thing. Instead of almost having a coronary from that annoying BEEP BEEP, this alarm clock will wake you with the savory scent of cooked bacon. It was designed by Matty Sallin, Daniel Bartolini and Hsiao-huh Hsu. All you have to do is put a slice of bacon in the clock the night before. It will begin cooking 10-minutes before you’re supposed to get up.
I don’t know if this is a dream invention or not. Most mornings, I’ll give up one of my dog’s kidneys (do they have those?) for a slice of bacon. But there are mornings when the last thing I need to smell is a piece of greasy pig. Will this alarm clock also carry me to the toilet and stroke my hair as I barf up the previous night’s booze. That’s what the smell of bacon does to me while I’m hungover.
You know, on second thought, I’d rather they invent an alarm clock that gently tickles your taint to wake you up and then hands you a fresh cup of Emergen-C.
