How does the old saying go? If you love something so much, you should marry it. How about just bringing it straight into the bedroom? If you're a true bacon lover who longs to bring bacon between the sheets, without the grease, now you can. J&D, the guys who brought you bacon shaving cream , have released bacon condoms. Each has an image of bacon on it all the way to the end. And if that's not enough bacon love for you, the condoms are filled with J&D's "baconlube," a water-based meat-flavored personal lubricant.

Bacon and bourbon pie crust Total time: 20 minutes, plus chilling and freezing times for the dough and shell Servings: Makes crust for 1 (9-inch) standard pie shell Note: Refrigerate the dough at least 2 hours, preferably overnight, to give the dough sufficient time to relax; otherwise, it may toughen and shrink while baking. If using shortening instead of the bacon grease, increase the salt by 1/4 teaspoon (to 3/4 teaspoon). For a nice sheen, brush the crust with egg white before baking.
