Push Button, Receive Bacon

posted by Jason Boyett

I am a designer and occasional artist, but only rarely have I ever resorted to real graffiti. I can’t remember any specific instances, but I’m fairly sure I have left my mark on the occasional bathroom wall. Probably to make a witty retort to some supposed insult, or to correct the grammar of a dirty limerick.

But if I were an honest-to-goodness graffiti artist, I think my life’s work would revolve around taking a Sharpie into every restroom possible to create this:

A close-up:

The photos above come from a post on Grant Hinkson’s blog more than 18 months ago, which is ancient in Internet terms. And the joke has apparently been around much longer. But ever since I encountered it a month or two ago — along with the inevitable t-shirts and other detritus connected to it — I can’t stop thinking about how perfect and funny this is.

It makes me smile. Every time.

Art really does make life more meaningful, even if it’s guerilla art.

Bacon makes life more meaningful, too.

i thought that was really random and kinda funny at first but not hilarious, until i saw the little diagram of the hot air waves coming out of the dryer that look like bacon. that's when i truly did laugh out loud. thats just as good as when people write "free cowboy hats" on the disposable paper toilet seat protectors.

I wonder why I've never gotten any bacon when I've pushed the button. Must be a lot of faulty machines out there…lol

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou
